Victory Over Death

Victory over Death is a sculpture we created to showcase the B.S. Mercantile frontier pants and cravats.

It was displayed on Nov.14.09 at Devotion Gallery for the Opening of Aire: The Second Fourfold Root

Victory Over Death - the elements

Wallpaper: Hand painted inspired by a victorian blood book called victory over death. The paper tells the story of Hugh Glass, a frontiersman who should have died many times. He was captured by pirates only to escape during a battle between the pirates and Indians. He went to live with a peaceful Indian tribe, surviving many battles only to leave after his wife was captures by another tribe. He joined a trapping company, while on a trapping hunt he was attacked by a grizzly bear and left to die by his comrades. He was determind to survive, crawling 600 miles to the nearest fort to seek his revenge. He survived the 4 month crawl on berries and determination. He died of old age.

The Frontier Pants by B.S. Mercantile: a recreation of a 1850's pattern.

The Cravat by B.S. Mercantile: inspired by the wild west

The Suspenders by B.S. Mercantile: Based on Victorian wedding suspenders. White silk, hand embroidered.

Old Time Drink Night + Benefit

Sunday, Sept. 27th 6pm-9pm
at Kill Devil Hill
170 Franklin St. Brooklyn NY

Mary Pickford was the first "American Sweetheart" of the silent silver screen.
She was a pioneer in the motion picture industry, one of the founding members of United Artist, and has since been named on of the leading women contributors to the movie industry.
During her time she was considered "the greatest woman who ever lived" by most Americans.

What sparked our interest in Mary Pickford was not only that she has three cocktails named after her, but how much she did to try and make the lives of everyone around her better. She started by nailing tin cans to the walls of movie studios to collect money for down and out actors after WWI. Mary then went on to set up The Motion Picture Relief Fund and The Motion Picture Country House and Hospital.

Mary Pickford was a remarkable woman that we could all learn from.
In her honor we will be making the first cocktail named after her, which was conceived by a legendary Cuban barman Vincenzo Marianella.

Most importantly will also be taking donations (of money) in Tin Cans for our neighborhood arts. No kidding. Its a Benefit.

Sunday is also the closing night of Greenpoint Open Studios

Celebrate Fat Tuesday With US

It's Old Time Drink Night
Join Us Fat Tuesday - Feb. 24th 7pm-10pm
Come in Costume and receive 20% off!

The last Tuesday of every month we host a special cocktail party here
at Kill Devil Hill
This month it luckily landed on Fat Tuesday. So we are having a Mardi Gras Party!
We will be serving up a New Orleans classic The Hurricane.

The Hurricane was invented by the infamous Pat O'Brian during WWII.
Whiskey was scarce, and bars were forced to order 50 cases of rum in order to get one case of whiskey. Pat O'Brian came up with a drink everyone loved in hopes of depleting his rum supply. O'Brian started his bar during prohibition, when he opened up a speakeasy , secret password to get in "storm's brewin"

Use the secret password and we'll give you some Mardi Gras beads!

Re-furbish and Re-use

Now is a more fitting time than ever to think about re-using what you already own.
Awhile back we posted a picture of a table we were re-furbishing to give it a new life. Here it is completed!
It is a beautiful enamel top table from the 30's/40's. We striped down the countless layers of paint to bring it back to the beautiful wood finish it once had.
We offer a wide range of services for helping you re-store, re-use, and recycle items you already have and love.
