Small Business Saturday 11.29.14




This upcoming Saturday is Small Business Saturday!  While Small Business Saturday is a fake shopping holiday that was created by American Express in 2010 (ironically the only credit card that we don't accept) the premise behind it is great! Spending your money at small business is super important, it's estimated that 68% of money spent at small business goes right back into the community (the other 32% goes to feed my cat Ms. Peel).  Also, wow the store has been open for just over two years, way cool!

Whats on Sale?

For the first, and probably only time ever, all of our fine vintage clothing and footwear will be 20% off, pick up some great duds or a sweet pair of boots!  All boxed vintage video games will be 20% and all $5 games will be buy two get 1 free, there will be tons of $1 stuff out too.  All Records will be buy 2 get 1 free, all of our Polaroid camera's will be 20% off and there will be other stuff on sale too, ohhh yeah.  Thanks everybody for another awesome year!

Store Hours

Since the stores inception there has always been a bit of confusion about the hours. The store hours do not change from week to week, they always the same (except for when someone is late...)  Please keep in mind that the hours are on this website under the directions/contact tab, on our Facebook page, our Yelp page, our Foursquare page, the store answering machine, and even on the store door.  In June we added Tuesday to the list of days that we are open, making Monday the only day that we don't recommend making a trip to the store.  So what are the store hours you ask?  Tuesday-Saturday 12-8 and Sunday 12-6.  See you cats then!
