The Shag Store offers fine art, books, apparel, and fun midcenturyinspired gifts created by Southern California – based artist Josh Agle, better known as Shag, who considers the Coachella Valley his second home. Many of the products can only be found at this store, though the team recently opened a new outpost at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
Known for an artistic style that draws inspiration from commercial illustrations of the last five decades, Shag infuses his designs with a sly sense of humor that is unmistakably of our time. His art and products epitomize the colorful, hedonistic lifestyle of midcentury Palm Springs and recognize the area’s status as a world-class destination. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Japan, Europe, and Australia, and he has designed projects for The Walt Disney Company and the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
An anchor in the Uptown Design District for more than 10 years, The Shag Store has established itself as one of the city’s must-see landmarks. The gallery has grown from a small retail space into a 3,000-square-foot showroom. Walking into the interactive store is like stepping into Shag’s mind, with art spanning his more than 30-year career. Every print is signed and numbered by hand to prevent fraud and avoid the trend of machine-signing.
Guests can have their fortune told by a palm-reading machine or take selfies among the colorful silk-screen prints. And if you’re on the hunt for a specific piece that is not available in store, the gallery has exclusive access to Shag’s archives dating back to 1997, and they are happy to help you acquire it.
