Art of Vintage

Story and photos by Will Geier. Tucked away on a quiet street in Killarney, Art of Vintage is a treasure trove of unique vintage items ranging from suitcases, to bird cages, to furniture and everything in between. The store is owned and operated by two sisters, Heather and Lori Oliphant, who have been in the vintage business for six years.

I sat down with local hip-hop dancer Melissa Buluran to talk about her sprouting success and recent personal revelations as an emerging urban artist. I first met her back in April at Late Night at the Plaza, where she unveiled a vibrant dance routine to Jerry Folk’s remix of Lose It by Oh Wonder.
