Courtney, Corinne, and Ashley all had a celebratory din-din, last night, for meeting their monthly goals. As usual, the conversation started out all-business and then ended with Ashley hypothesizing the zombie apocalypse, Courtney punching someone in the face and Corinne dismissively sipping her drink - plotting her escape.
They DID get to talk a lot about Ashley's new favorite store in Asheville, Hip Replacements. She swung by the Lexington Avenue retro boutique /secondhand shop because a customer at Sid & Nancy said they have a very similar type of business. The manager, Ryan Ashley, was very excited to chat ideas and Ashley came home all inspired and fresh. If you get a chance to go to Asheville, anytime this summer, swing by Hip Replacements and tell them Sid & Nancy said "hello."
The girls were not expecting the shop to be as busy at it was this morning. Within 30 minutes of opening, several Columbi-Yeah T-shirts had sold. SWEET! Then, Courtney pointed out that all these folks were ravenous for the shirts because they must have read The State article this morning. Oh. Courtney and Ashley spent half the day desperately "crazy calling" Shiggy, because they were swiftly running out of shirts to sell. He showed up around 3pm with an armload in various sizes and colors and also promised to bring more as soon as the new batch was back from the printers.
They also got to see Whitney Malson today! They got to gabbing about Shiggy's unexpected success and Whitney said that Shiggy's website (which was built by Pretty Penny Productions - LAST NIGHT) had blown up, this morning, and nearly crashed! Weird.... but good for you, Shiggy! We heart you!
Shuffle, a free publication out of Charlotte, just came out with their new issue - which is available at Sid & Nancy. It would be impossible to thoroughly get into all the musical artists covered in this issue - its totally overwhelming.... But we LOVE the magazine because it's FREE and it's absolutely saturated with information, reviews, and art. On the cover, currently: Aimee Argote. Amazing.
One more thing! Our awesomely bad-ass girl-skater friend, Lauren Trapp, is hostessing a girls' skate jam at the Owens Field Skate Park SATURDAY from 10:00am-12:00pm. Lauren is an absolute girl-power lady and is so easy and sweet to talk to. If you or someone you know is afraid that she'll be the only girl at the skate park, we highly recommend hitting up this leetle event. The GREAT part is that, if you miss out this weekend, you can make it to the next one, which will be held (same place/same time) on June 12th. For a little history on the skate park, click here.
