During the August Doin’s events, Bootleg Alley Antiques & Art owners Ken and Brenda Mooney will be celebrating three years of business.
Voted the third Best of Rim Country Antique Store by the readers of the Payson Roundup, the business has continued to be a stable part of Payson’s business community, the Mooneys said.
Since their grand opening on Aug. 11, 2006, the Mooneys have been active in Payson.
Ken and Brenda are founding members of the Payson Main Street Merchants Guild (PMSMG).
Brenda has been both treasurer and in charge of public relations for the PMSMG. Ken serves on the Green Valley Redevelopment Area board.
Bootleg Alley Antiques & Art is also an active member of the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce.
One of the Mooneys’ most successful accomplishments in Payson was the founding of the First Friday Art & Antiques Walk.
This Main Street award-winning event includes music, refreshments and ambiance. First Friday is a year-round event.
The Mooneys say Bootleg Alley Antiques & Art has something for everyone.
On its walls is a one-of-a-kind art gallery featuring many listed artists, as well as several award-winning Native American artists.
Local cowboy artist Conrad Okerwall has a gallery in the store.
Book and music lovers will enjoy the large selection of books, CDs and videos.
For the future rock star or collector, there are autographed guitars by Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and the All American Rejects.
Collectibles such as Hallmark, Boyds and TY can be found throughout the store.
Golfers have found Bootleg Alley a great place to buy clubs, bags and other golf accessories.
The Mooneys have managed to fill all 2,000 square feet of their shop with items such as: steins, leather jackets, denim, vintage hats, teapots, dinner and kitchenware.
After the rodeo parade on Saturday, Aug. 15, Ken and Brenda will serve refreshments.
