This month we’re talking to Vanessa from American Graffiti
So Vanessa tell us a little about American Graffiti……..
American Graffiti was established back in 1982 when Afflecks first opened . Four years ago we opened a 2nd shop on Hilton Street also called American Graffiti. We sell vintage, retro, fancy dress and anything kitsch and unusual.
You have been in Afflecks many years now, do you think that it has changed much over the years?
Its most definately changed. Over the years its grown much bigger and its definately getting busier under the new management due to advertising and marketing forums. I’ve noticed that customers of mine from the 80`s are now bringing their teenagers in to shop!
Describe the typical American Graffiti customer.
People who want to recreate an era, 40`s, 50`s, 60`s, 70`s and 80`s. We also get alot of BBC and Granada TV stylists in to buy stock for several TV productions. We’ve also been known to sell to celebs and footballers.
What do you love about Afflecks?
Most definitely the Vibe within Afflecks, its infectious!
