SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – New life is coming to Downtown Santa Barbara. More businesses are starting to move in and open, filling the downtown vacancies.
"This just came at the right time. The price was right. It was just such a good opportunity that I just couldn't pass it up, so we're really excited about it," said Sara Gehris, owner of SB Urban Flea Market.
Gehris expects to open her market next month, taking the old home of Pascucci Restaurant.
"It's going to be a vintage, just a flea market, very eclectic. I have over 18 dealers in here. I'm going to have some artisans, most of them are local," Gehris said.
SB Urban Flea Market is joining businesses like M Special and Tondi Gelato which also recently opened on State Street.
Downtown Santa Barbara attributes this success to the State Street promenade—which will remain for at least another year.
