About Orange Dracula

Imagine a Woolworth’s or an old Five and Dime…

Photo Booth Fun!

Photo Booth Fun!

 

I’m Chad Smith, owner of Orange Dracula (that’s me on the left in the photobooth with some happy customers).

Why the name ”Orange Dracula”? I love all things orange and strange, and I love old horror movies!

I love all things orange, even down to my shoes!

Orange Dracula 5 & 10 is inspired by the old-style dime store (also known as a novelty store or 5 & 10).

Back when I was a teenager, my punk rock pals and I would hang out there (in our town it was a Newberry’s) and we could always count on finding the weirdest stuff.

We got our pictures taken in the photobooth, ate at the lunch counter, and treasured our unusual finds. These days novelty stores have gone the way of the record store and today’s “dollar stores” just aren’t as much fun, so I opened Orange Dracula 5 & 10.

I started out selling buttons (handmade shiny pinback buttons, also known as badges) on eBay, and built a reputation as a Power Seller with great service and fun products.

I’ve always wanted to have a little shop to sell unusual and interesting stuff: buttons, patches, monster models, D.I.Y. craft supplies, black light paints, retro-kitsch and vintage toys, counterculture gear, cards, gifts, journals, 7-days candles, punky goth fashion accessories, classic horror movie memorabilia, and other interesting items.

Our photobooth is real film- not digital!

Come see us “down under” in the Pike Place Market! We are on the third floor down from the pig and the flying fish, or the first floor up if you are coming from the waterfront. We have a REAL old fashioned photo booth, pinball, a vintage Pac-Man, and a HUGE selection of buttons, sundries, and horror, pop culture, punk, goth, and just plain fun novelty items. Hang out, play some pinball, and check out all our groovy stuff.
