Strings and Things, a new antique store at 40th and Hamilton Streets, is expected to open next month.
If the location sounds familiar, it's because the nearly half-block-long building owned by luthier John Hargiss also houses his longtime business, Hargiss Stringed Instruments. He moved his business to 4002 Hamilton St. last year from its former Benson location.
The antique store, which will be owned and operated by Hargiss, will offer antique furnishings as well as antique and vintage musical instruments and accessories.
Hargiss is renovating the 35,000-square-foot building, which houses an upstairs apartment, storefront and the former 40th Street movie theater.
Hargiss hopes to open the antique store, which is next to his music store and workshop, in a few weeks.
