Owner Kevin Bendure opened Then Again AZ in April 2012 and just celebrated the store’s first anniversary! Kevin had worked for other antique /vintage shops over the years and, since it’s what he loves to do, decided to venture out on his own. He chose the location on Cave Creek Road, 1 mile south of Cactus Road, because of the surrounding area and its potential to become the next antique row.
Kevin’s experience and inspiration runs the gambit. At a very young age, he scoured through antique and junk shops, garage and estate sales—even the city dump—looking for treasures. Museums also taught him a lot as well. He also loved to take things apart and reassemble them—whether they were mechanical, electrical, cabinetry/furniture, or plumbing—you name it.
He has been fortunate to befriend a great group of other dealers over the years who have given him volumes of knowledge in areas where his own information was not as well honed.
All the while Kevin kept meaningful information in his head—such as prices, condition, history, brand names, etc. He researches items online and through books to ensure his prices are lower and will match (sold) online prices for identical items in like condition.
