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!

Disasterpiece Theatre XII: Computer Beach Party. Thursday 4.24.

After several months hiatus, it's the Thursday that you all have been waiting for, Disaterpiece XII!!!

High Energy Vintage proudly presents Computer Beach Party.

Written and directed by some guy named Gary, this movie is misguided from minute 1.  There are no redeeming qualities to this film, it's bad and it should never have been produced.  Expect no original plot elements, a dearth of character development, cinematic ineptness, and more!

As usual we will have beer, snacks, food etc, but you are also welcome to bring your own.

It's Disasterpiece co-conspirator Alex's birth-dizzle-day so perhaps expect cake too?

Please RSVP on Facebook or email as seating is limited!
