Knoxville can't get enough vintage.  Nostalgia has opened a second store and will hold an official grand opening party Saturday January 19.

Nostalgia opened on Homberg Drive in Bearden more than 6 years ago.  Demand has led to the opening of a second location.

"We had a waiting list.  We had a list with people on it for two years that wanted to be a dealer," said Nostalgia owner Amie Swanson.  "I felt terrible because they had to stay on the list...and stay on the list."

The second location opened in December at 1401 McCalla Avenue near The Old City.

"Officially, it's in the Warehouse District.  Knoxville is just now saying, 'hey, there's a Warehouse District'.  We're literally five blocks from The Old City," Swanson added.

The Warehouse District location will eventually hold 80 booths where the Homberg Drive space has 40 vendor spaces.

"It looks awesome.  In just the past five minutes we've seen so many things we want," said Abbey Reitzel who was shopping with her mom at the McCalla Avenue location Monday afternoon.  "It's huge, it's probably twice the size as the other one.  It's a great area."

The newest store will hold a grand opening party Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
