New t-shirt design for the Sip 'n Dip lounge!



That's what you'll be saying if you find yourself enjoying a cocktail at the Sip 'n Dip lounge in Great Falls, MT.

The new neon sign at the O'Haire Inn

We've designed and produced several shirts for The Sip over the past 12 or so years and in honor of their recent "retrovation" we've introduced a new shirt which honors their past.

New Sip 'n Dip t-shirt designed by Vintage Roadside

Our latest design is a nod to the original cocktail napkins used in the lounge when it opened in 1962. You can now purchase this one (and several other of our designs) at the O'haire Inn.


We highly recommend a visit to The Sip. In addition to having a great 1960s cocktail lounge it's one of last places you can still gaze through the windows and watch live mermaids swimming behind the bar.

Cheers to places keeping their history alive!

Western Exterminator Mr. Little statue currently on display at the Valley Relics Museum

 Howdy everyone!

We wanted to share the news that a recent addition to the Vintage Roadside fiberglass statue collection is one of the amazing Western Exterminator Mr. Little statues. This is one of four 17.5' statues created by Bob Strom in the 1960s.

With the goal of continuing to share this piece of history, we've teamed up with our friends at the Valley Relics Museum in Van Nuys, CA. The statue is currently on loan through 2023 and they've created a perfect setting for him. Since arriving at the museum he's become quite the social media star appearing in countless photos and videos.

Huge thanks to Rentokil and Western Exterminator for allowing us to become the new caretakers of this statue. Also a huge thanks to Valley Relics Museum for all of their work preparing a space in their fantastic museum.
