Downtown development continues with opening of new vintage store specializing in rare finds
20/20 Vintage – A Vision for Vintage and Unruly Things is located at 423 William Street in downtown Corpus Christi and opened this summer. The store is a collection of strange, exotic, and exceptional things that you won’t be able to find in just any store. It will be featuring eclectic artwork by Becky Smith, as well as curated works by other artists. It will also be bringing the vintage style by Metropolisculture, Kimberly Rios.
The store partnered with Texas-based advertising agency, MDR to develop a unique store identity. “We aimed to create a brand identity that captures the quirkiness, yet timeless quality of the items found in the store. The custom illustrations are an ensemble of unique objects and creatures that are artwork in themselves,” said Sara Kilsby, Senior Art Director at MDR.
20/20 Vintage owner, Monica Ellison, the wife of local attorney Scott Ellison, is a devoted mother of 3 and has been active in Corpus Christi for quite some time, helping with community and school initiatives. “I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Downtown movement happening in Corpus Christi, and excited to announce that 20/20 Vintage will be opening its doors in our new brick and mortar store front,” said Ellison, “None of this would have been possible without the support of my loving family and friends.” Now, with her passion for all things strange and unruly, she’s enjoying her first start-up business.
