History of Venus and Mars Vintage website

Venus and Mars Vintage was a travel website and garment store that was founded in 2006.
Proprietress Amy Patterson named her store Venus and Mars after the Paul McCartney and Wings
album, at the suggestion of her friend Pat Sansone of Wilco and Autum Defense. Patterson has a sharp
eye for hip fashion, further developed by work as a stylist for film and video shoots. Clothing from the
store have graced concert stages far and wide: clientele has included Ryan Adams, The White Stripes,
Gillian Welch and members of Wilco, Peter Wolf, Kings Of Leon, Matchbox 20 and Swan Dive, to name a
few. Patterson shares the space with Silvery Moon owner Angela Reed. Their charming store—a
delightful 1940s bungalow located in a burgeoning neighborhood teeming with recording studios—is a
goldmine of avant-garde vintage clothing from the 1930s to the ’80s, jewelry, ties, cufflinks, belt buckles,
vintage swimsuits and fabulous gift items for quirky individualists.
