A most bad-ass gift or home decor item. A flamed and pin-striped human skull!
Okay, so it’s not actually human — but this baby is just about life size and rock solid.
Beautifully detailed in a classic von Dutch style by our artist Dean (read more on him in our About section). Very unique and quite a show piece.
A perfect home addition for collectors and novelty lovers of all things rockabilly / psychobilly / goth / kustom kulture or just the bizarre!

When we formed Grease and Grace four years ago, I don’t think we would have ever imagined our art on the red carpet.
Every time I ship a purse (or any of our art) to its new ‘forever home’, I think about its destination, and what it will be like. I consider where it’s lived before, and who with (all of our handbags are vintage!)
At the time, when I shipped this pretty blue and black metallic baby to her new home three thousand miles away in California, I couldn’t really comprehend how cool a life it was about to receive.
As the pictures rolled in from The Emmys 2016, I had tears in my eyes! What an honor, a real joy, to have a piece of our art on that magical red carpet of dreams. Beautiful and sweet Melissa of the Television Academy is the new owner of this pin-striped vintage handbag. It found its perfect home, and perfect owner!
Just look at that! Bringing the “Old Hollywood Style” back to Hollywood. Perfectly matched to her gown, it’s as if they were made to go together.
Thank you for sending us these fabulous and glamorous photos! We love it, and we are elated.
Dean Hogg is the artist behind the bags.
He has been working with pin-striping media for four decades. His love for 1950s style has created a classic look that is truly a blend of the past and present. Grease and Grace is a family owned company, of which Dean is the patriarch.

I hate to not give this the time it fully deserves, because our experience working with Fine Living Lancaster was phenomenal. After the holiday rush I’ll edit this post. For now, here is their wonderful bio piece on dad, Dean Hogg, our pin-striper!
Better late than never, a few images from our time at Sled Fest in Duncannon, PA.
Sled Fest is a rockabilly themed, pre ’72 car show held at the Old Sled Works antiques shop. If you’ve never been to Old Sled Works it’s definitely worth the trip. The place is huge and it’s jam packed full of collectables. We didn’t have a lot of time to peruse with running our stand, but what we did see was awesome. We nabbed a Radio Flyer trike for the wee one (which is now pin-striped!) Definitely planning a trip back.
Along with the show and the antiques, the good folks from Retro Lovely magazine were there. They were shooting pin-up photography at the soda fountain inside.
There was a car show (the event is put on by the Hooligan’s Car Club) and also a pin-up contest. A lot of great folks were there including the owners of Atomic Cheesecake pin-up photography (Baltimore).
We made a lot of great connections and had an all around great time. The pre-party the night before at the River City Blues Club (Harrisburg, PA) was great, with awesome bands including Trio Agave, a surf rock band hailing from Lancaster, PA.
See you next year! Were you there? Drop us a line, let us know what you thought!
