>> FRIDAY FLASHBACK: One of the highlights of West Chester’s First Friday celebrations is the Vintage Garage Sale. The latest happens Aug. 1 from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Chestnut Street parking garage, where more than 20 vendors will showcase their wares. “We’ve been presenting the sale for the past three years, and it’s grown every year,” says West Chester Parks and Recreation’s Richard Ashenfelder. “It’s something completely different and cool.” Visit www.avintagegaragesale.com.
>> CREAM OF THE CROP: Studio 882’s Chad and Katie Groves are kicking off the “In Network Designer” program at their high-end furniture showroom in Chadds Ford. Rather than hiring in-store designers, the Groves have assembled a vetted list of pros to help clients with their projects. Names includes Christina Price of West Chester’s Main Line Window Décor, Ellet Kidd Interior Architecture & Design in Chadds Ford and Francesca Rudin of Kennett Square’s +Details by Inside Lines. Paint-color and home-furnishing consults are among the services offered. Visit www.studio-882.com.
