Vintage, Because it's Better! Art, Because it Inspires! Repurposed, Because it's the right thing to do for the planet!

As a kid, all I wanted to do was make art and music and then, I discovered vintage!
Having spent a lifetime working as a display artist, starting with my first display at a thrift store where my mom volunteered, I came to realize that clothing IS art!
Also working in several vintage stores to support myself while pursuing my music and art ventures, I grew to not only love vintage for how well things were made back in the day, but also how creative designers of days gone by once were.
Finally deciding that it was time I had my own vintage store, I opened Bang! Bang! Vintage in Arcata CA. I couldn't believe the response from the community! For more than 11 years people have, on a daily basis, told me that Bang! Bang! is, hands down, the best curated vintage store with the most reasonable prices they've ever had the pleasure to patronize.
In 2016 I decided that it was time that I expanded to a space where I could also make art and repurpose those treasures that needed a little TLC as well as create an Etsy site so that my audience could expand to the world. With these things in mind, I moved my store to the historic Creamery District of Arcata CA where the arts are thriving and small businesses of the creative sort are rapidly developing.
I am now working hard to run my brick and mortar store in the old Creamery Building itself (built in 1917, it's an historic building for historic clothing!) , but also working hard to present new and fabulous vintage items on Etsy every day, create art clothing made from repurposed vintage, take custom orders for hand drawn/painted clothing and accessories, and working hard making a plethora of other art oddities.
Life is good and life on earth is even better when we all buy used/repurposed and lessen our carbon footprints all while looking stylish!
I look forward to connecting with you and providing you with that perfect vintage piece or hand made art, whether it be hand painted or collaged shoes or a repurposed 1970's jacket made to look like Prince's Purple Rain cutaway! I aim to please!
