Co-owners Carter Kendall and Chance Owen transformed a used-car lot in Costa Mesa into a vintage store and custom print shop. Named for a town in the Mojave desert, the charcoal building with “Landers Supply House” hand-painted in white was inspired by service stations from the late ’50s. “There are so many cool graphics and fonts from that time that have been lost for a while now,” Owen says. “We tried to bring it back and pull some of that inspiration into the store.” The pair also operates Landers Liquor Bar a block away in the space occupied by Owen’s previous venture, Taco Brat.
Curated from flea markets and stores along the California coast, the vintage collection includes everything from men’s denim and graphic shirts to red leather jackets for your toddler. Make your way outside to the open patio and you’ll find an impressive display of cowboy boots. Why? “Because every closet needs a pair,” Kendall says.
Bring in a digital copy of a photo or design as well as a clothing item and you can create a gift for Father’s Day with Landers’ custom print shop. The staff will work with you to get your design just right, and within a few days, your gift will be ready.
