Get a Room and a free t-shirt

Get a Room and a free t-shirt

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, there are many couples for whom “Get a Room” has been added to this week’s to-do list.  For two New Yorkers, getting a room is a way of life.

Candy Olsen and Courtney Wagner are native Californians for whom garage sales, thrift stores, flea markets and even the occasional dumpster dive in search of unique, vintage fashions has been a way of life since childhood.  Now that they’re in New York, they’ve channeled that enthusiasm into a career.

C&C Pop-Up Shop is their mobile, vintage shop.  Popping up in different locations throughout Brooklyn, Candy and Courtney stand out from other thrift shops in that they’re avoiding the overhead of a brick and mortar store and are free to change their aesthetic each time they pop up in a new spot.

One of the main ways Candy and Courtney are available to maintain their inventory is with storage unit auctions.  That’s how these ladies became part of the “Storage Wars: New York” crew and earned a place in the hearts of everyone at StorageMart.

“Storage Wars: New York” is a spin-off of sorts from the popular A&E Network program “Storage Wars.”  Film crews follow a cast of real-life entrepreneurs around the New York City metropolitan area (including filming at StorageMart’s Brooklyn locations) as they engage in the cutthroat world of storage unit auctions.  It’s as a part of the show the world picked up on Candy and Courtney’s slogan of “Get a Room”, meaning to purchase a storage unit at auction.

“Storage Wars: New York” hasn’t, as of right now, been picked up for a 3rd season, but we’re definitely hoping they’ll make that call soon so we can see more of Candy, Courtney, Tad, Chris, Mike, Joe P. and even Big Steve in action.  To show our enthusiasm for the show, our fondness for Candy and Courtney and because Valentine’s Day is coming soon, we’re giving away 50 official C&C Pop-Up Shop “Get a Room” t-shirts, just like the ones sometimes worn by Candy and Courtney on the show.

  • My wife and I were at the taping of the show from Port Chester (Westchester county NY) last summer and met Courtney and Candy and Mike B. I have since had several email conversations with Mike and absolutely LOVE the show. I am a BIG FAN and woould love to see it return for a 3rd season. I have since become interested in the buying of storage lockers and gone to several auctions since we visited the show and the taping of it. Please bring back the show for another season!!!!!!!!!!!!
