LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A popular Germantown-Schnitzelburg antique mall's plans for renovation are giving a new business a much needed boost.

Nestled at the corner of Campbell and Jefferson streets sits the recently opened Louisville Antique Market. The new store, however, has some not so new vendors. That's because the Chamberlain family that now owns and operates the NuLu shop, once sold antiques out of Goss Avenue Antiques and Interiors along the Schnitzelburg-Germantown border.

However, after Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors owners announced plans to transform their location into apartments, vendors had to relocate their merchandise.

Renovation project leaders did not wish to speak on camera Wednesday, but told us they expect to finalize the project's budget in March. In the meantime, a bright red store closing sale sign sits out front.

While the closure means the end of one era for Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors, it's the start of something new for former Goss vendor Daniel Chamberlain.

"When I first saw the building I thought, 'this is the right size, the location is great'," said Chamberlain, Louisville Antique Market co-owner. "We decided at this point, since we really had no choice but we had to move, that if we had to do it, we might as well do it the way we want to do it."

Chamberlain said that meant selling only authentic antiques; something he has opted to allow other displaced vendors to come in and do as well.
