Artistic Delirium has already breathed new life into what was previously host to the old Dream Merchant store. With a loyal customer base, quality work and products, excellent service, and a friendly staff, the store has a great strategy for breaking any misconceptions that might have been lurking about this location.
Building on that concept, the store is now sharing space with Guitars to Gunstocks owner, Jacob Collins, a talented local artist and craftsman with a love of local music. This new retail store will feature Collins’ beautiful wood carvings, staffs, and guitars as well as what aims to be one of the most significant local music retail collections around.
Collins is, and has been, actively seeking out local bands and musicians in order to feature their merchandise in his new store. He has already garnered merchandise from bands like Horlet, Forces of Nature, Engraved Darkness, Chronic Agression, and Killed By Art, and is aggressively searching out new bands and merchandise to feature at the Grand Opening. Additionally, both Guitars to Gunstocks and Artistic Delirium offer their store’s prime window space for local event flyers and encourage anyone with flyers to visit the store and occupy some window space!
