Support Handmade and Vintage.

As I was making my rounds on the 'ol inter-web I decided to check up on what my wife's cousin has been up to on his recent ETSY shop. Kid has gone mad crazy!Like 122 items for sale crazy. And that is only what he has posted....
He has always shopped thrift and vintage, something his mom installed in him at a young age. Well now he is passing on his goods and discoveries to anyone who is willing to sign up for a paypal account.

But not only that he has gone mental with making neckties and bowties and selling them at ridiculously cheep prices. 

So if you are in the need of a fine hand built bow tie or just looking for some good men's vintage items check out his shop QP Collections

Back South.

That is right we are back in SoCal!!!
Sorry for such a long absence away from posting anything. Since January of this the 2011 I have been in talks with folks that finally recived an offer for an amazing opportunity that, unfortunately, brings us come back to SoCal. I am in charge of starting a new apparel division for a big company that is part of an even bigger company. But it is totally an awesome thing because it is focused on an older demographic (my age) and is Heritage based with some tech mixed in. Right up my alley! It has now been about a month since my family and I packed up our home in 'The Great Pacific Northwest' and dragged ourselves down to 'Surf City, USA', our new home. So as I continue to get settled into our new Home, new job and new location my postings and build of goods my be few and far between. But with a new home comes a new garage and I am slowly, but surely, working to get the new workspace all set up and really would like to get back to building goods by the end of July, for sure!
So till then keep doing what you love and making things that you are stoked on....

Motor Boat'n

Surfing, like most things these days, is followed by folks that are "doing their own thing"..... just like everybody else.... Well Mr. Brian Bent truly is doing his own thing!!! If you know anything about wave sliding then you know that a "kook box", or anything of the sort, is not something you see much of in museums let alone actually out in the waves being ridden.
A true example of going out finding what you love and just having a go with it for nothing else but personal stoke! Thanks to JJ for sharing with me about the gig with United 50. which reminds me, to see more of Mr.BB check out his little Sunday gathering, Hot Rod Church for Sinners.
