This week I had the pleasure of shooting at VAMP, a vintage music and art store in Uptown Oakland. I've bought many records at this shop over the years and gotten to know its owners, Tracy and Fernando. VAMP's selection focuses on jazz, funk, soul, and international records from the 1950s - 1980s. Needless to say, they've turned me onto some cool shit.
Tracy and Fernando also sell vintage clothing, jewelry, and other assorted tchotckes that they find while thrifting across the country. During our shoot, this happy customer picked up a Black Panther bomber jacket.
I love the warm, homey feel to their space. You could spend hours there just hanging out and listening to records, which I've done many times myself.
VAMP is located at 331 19th St, Oakland, California
