Urban Garage Market started when maker & picker Kelly Arent had a dream of having a space to house all of the collected goodness that she had gathered over her years as an interior decorator & passionate painter. After years of working out of the family garage, it was time to set some boundaries between loving the work.... and staying married! There was also a common interest among local creatives to have a "space" to show off their wares.
Kelly had a relentless passion for finding this common space, and so she found the perfect space in the beautiful downtown Benton Harbor Arts District, and the rest was history! In just 3 years, the shop has expanded to almost triple its original size, housing over 15 vendors across the midwest. The shop also hosts crafting classes & painting workshops where makers of all levels can gather to learn a new skill and share in the joy of creative expression.

Our shop is a thoughtful collection of wonderful things curated by a variety of independent artists and local pickers. Our stock rotates often, and most items are one-of-a-kind!
We are proud stockists of Iron Orchid Designs products, Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, and Annie Sloan products, including her famous Chalk Paint® and Wax. We also offer painting workshops and craft classes.
