The name of the store is Cats Like Us. The owners, husband and wife Andrew and Julie Ann Davis, want you to know that they do not sell cats, but they do get asked about it all the time.

Their store features merchandise that pays tribute to the 1940s, 50s and 60s. It's brand new stuff that looks like old stuff. According to Julie Ann, retro is better than vintage for a number of reasons. "It's flattering on a lot of women's shapes and sizes and what's nice about retro versus vintage is that it's machine washable and they wear better."

Through their website they are able to sell all over the world. Andrew said, "We do have a lot of customers in Australia, we've sold to Russia and Japan, a lot of places."

They were inspired by the TV shows they watched growing up including Happy Days, Wonder Years and Shanana. More information at the Cats Like Us website.
