Adler-Striped-Pillow

Quick note: Tonight we’ll be in Charlotte at 6pm for a signing at the Barnes & Noble at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. For more info and to RSVP, click here. Hope to see you there! Sorry guys! It’s been way too long since our last window shopping adventure (you can check out all the small boutiques, big chains, and other random stores we’ve dropped in on over the years here).

The Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge

Macklemore-Challenge

The day has finally come! It’s about to get thrifty up in hurrrr. Here’s the deal. This “Challenge” – which we issued last Friday – was basically an excuse to all (virtually) go thrift shopping together and share our spoils. Plus there was a scavenger-hunt-ish element tossed in there for kicks.
