A Sad Day

Bobchi….Margaret Thomas 1919-2010
Today is my grandmothers funeral…a sad sad day. I look forward to the day that I will see her again and we walk the streets of gold. Rejoicing that she is no longer in pain and is in heaven with our heavenly Father.

Hooray Today Is the Day!

My lip’s have been sealed for oh so long and today I feel the need to shout it out…..”Featured Seller! Today! Hooray!” The journey has been a trying to say the least. In the midst of a major work shop move, house remodel, the passing of my most loved Grandmother, Bobchi, I have somehow kept my head up and my eye on the goal. In the beginning of the entire process I was so focused on Seven Ply but the recent events have changed my prospective on this little thing we call life. Bobchi was 92 years old. She was born in 1919. She lived a full life, raised 6 girls and even camped her way across country ALONE with a with four of her children. She is my hero….for real! I have a hard enough time handling my little Hurricane. I can not image dealing with six! She was ahead of her time with most things. Back in the day she wore the cutest dresses and wedges…I bet she was the envy of all her friends. When it came to sewing her fabric choices where always amazing. She tap danced live on the radio before television was even around! She took care of me when I was little. She inspires me to do more, try harder and push on. I know that she would have been proud of this little accomplishment. She was always proud of me. Today is bitter sweet. Bochi and Jogi in their twenties. Life as I know it. Its pretty much like camping with a microwave ha.

Philly is so Hot right now!

Well I made it through another Punk Rock Flea Market. It was super hot... around 103 or something. I think the r5 guys need to rethink the dates for this event. So far the last two have had the most extreme weather (guys spring and fall hint hint). Even with the all the sweat and complaining it was still packed with people and lots of fun. Here are some photos from the day. Thanks for everyone that stopped by to see Seven Ply and Vintage Wave.
This is me checking in with the babysitter.

They are saying this was the biggest PRFM yet. I believe them... image 103 degrees outside then invite 3,000 people to warm it up some more.

Here is a great PRFM find! I love vintage skateboards. I also picked up a few old skate mags from the 80's.

Fresh Designs By Ecoist

Recently, a company named Ecoist did a sweet write up about Seven Ply. I was flattered and wanted to return the favor of course! You must check out their site. Ecoist makes eco friendly bags and purses from pre-consumer waste like candy wrappers and Coca Cola labels. It doesn’t get much greener then that! I have seen some of these products in person and was blown away! They make the cutest clutches for those hot summer nights out on the town! I was just on their site tonight and they are having an awesome sale….so get on it!
