Meet some of those who bring a little more of their magic to Bad Madge!
Bryan Cantrell -"Westcoast Eyewear"
Bryan aka the Sunglasses guy (West Coast Eyewear) has been peddling Sunglasses for twenty-six years. He contributes a crazy fun retro style selection for some of the sunnies here at Bad Madge. He's a Fire Starter (Radiate Portable Campfires), Shark Tank Entrepreneur, as well as a Beauty Lotions and Potions Maker. He's also a Writer of Screenplays, Creator of Comics, Producer of Content, a Husband, a Father, a Wolf and Dog Advocate, and obviously in Sunny California a Surfer of Waves.
Emily Rodriguez -"Emily Twirls"
Vintage Enthusiast & Picker
Emily is a diehard collector of the style called dead 50’s! What does that mean? All that stuff that people threw away in the ’80s and ’90s because they thought Pink Frieze couches and enormous clocks that looked like stars were tacky! As a collector of things vintage for the last eleven years, she can honestly say she'll bring you the best from coast to coast! She and her husband have gone to the furthest reaches of the US in search of all things Atomic and Mid Century! Her love for the pick brings another fun element to Bad Madge!
Noah Feldman -"Wormhole Vintage"
Noah grew up in a design-centric family with a home filled with unique furnishings. His childhood home was filled with 1950's modern furniture, African tribal sculpture, middle eastern rugs, and colorful folk art. The house was a constantly evolving amalgamation of eccentric design, and it was in this home where Noah's love and passion for design were born. He now runs Wormhole Vintage, an online shop which focuses on unique mid-20th Century modern furniture and decorative arts. At Bad Madge, he uses his eye to curate amazing furnishings for our home store.
Shawna Bong -"Shawna Bong Jewelry"
Shawna Bong has been a part of the Bad Madge family for over five years. She was a previous sales associate turned jewelry guru. While living in San Diego she owned an accessory business selling vintage, crystal, stone, and unique handmade jewelry. She recently moved back to her home state of Wisconsin but continues to contribute jewelry as a part of our extended Bad Madge family.
Terrence Burns - "World Visuals"
Terry is one of the most wonderfully unique and creative souls you’ll ever meet. When you visit the store Tanya wants you to feel the nostalgia with Bad Madge being its own mini department store. As our visual merchandiser at Bad Madge, he just knows what works to capture her vision. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and is not only a merchandiser but a designer and artist. He is a believer that kindness goes a long way. If you catch him at the shop doing his thing he’ll most likely catch you off guard with a funny quirky joke (he’s the king of jokes).
