Kitsch and cool collide at owners Vynsie, Jully, and Derek Law’s globally inspired design toy store for adults. While the shop may not make you 34 years younger, it might make you feel like you’ve been transported onto the pages of a comic book. Owners Vynsie, Jully, and Derek Law are all about having fun, and they share the same young-at-heart vision that made the gift store possible. Named for the year in which Vynsie and Jully were born, We Are 1976 features an eclectic assortment of rare books, jewelry, home accessories, and collectible toys from places such as Tokyo, San Francisco, Chicago, and, of course, Dallas. Think tea towel-inspired dinnerware from Copenhagen, a green flocked teddy bear figurine from Japan, and DIY collage kits from England. And that’s the more reserved stuff. It’s a thoughtful blend of collectible toys, home goods, and art objects that burst with Anime-like energy. Letterpress junkies alert: We Are 1976’s selection of the affordable graphic art form includes Inky Lips Press, Studio 204, Color Box Design, and more. The store even hosts screen printing and letterpress workshops. How cool is that? They’ve even dedicated an area of gallery space to the work of area artists.
