Old Try

Good folk.



I got an email from a friend at Antique Archaeology in Nashville. And one from a cowboy down in Texas who I've spent a week with last year. Both said 'I saw you in a magazine' and one said 'I will send you one.'



Now, I knew it was coming, cause our friend, Caroline, of Back Down South asked if I minded being in a story Folk Magazine was writing on her. Course not I said. And that was about the last...

Shoes made for strutting.



A month or so back, I got an email from a Tennesseean up here who lives up this way in New Hampshire. He'd bought a couple of prints from us, and had them hanging up in the Granite State. And this is what he said about them:


“ The prints have been many topics of conversation during cocktail parties at my home. Come to find out, many New Englanders, especially here on the seacoast, do not have a...

In time for the Derby: Kentucky for Kentucky



I love great ideas.


So last year when I guy I knew from grad school, a guy from Kentucky, teamed up with other friends of his from Kentucky, I knew there was going to be magic. And there was. And there is.


They launched a Kickstarter project and called it Kentucky for Kentucky– trying to raise money to make a Super Bowl spot to tell others how badass their state is.They might’ve fallen short of...

Taste of Bullitt County



The most exciting thing about being in business is being able to help folks out who are, in turn, trying to help out others.

The Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education is one of those groups who are just trying to help. Their mission is simple:

To provide enhanced learning opportunities, through donations, for the education of all students of Bullitt County public schools.

Back Down South.


Met up with Caroline of Back Down South while I was in Atlanta. She's a blogger and photographer and has, in just a few short months, really carved out a nice niche for herself amongst style bloggers. She's always finding folks and shooting them and making all kinds of people look really famous (some of which certainly are).



Swing by and give her looks a look. Take a page of style advice from it....

A few weeks back I was puttering around the internet, and stumbled on Ampersand Vintage Modern.

Now, anything with an Ampersand is fine by me. (Side note, a buddy of mine out on the West Coast has an ampersand blog).

At any rate, these folks go searching for some of the finest, simplest old vintage goods, then sell them in their online shop. The coolest part is that they live over in Somerville....

Working with Bourbon & Boots.



Got an email from a guy months ago. Something about a sales site that was going to start that hadn't started but was going to and it was going to be really popular and Southern and we should hop on board. I sent back an email saying no. That I wasn't interested.

Then I get another email, and he says that he'd like to talk about it. Now, if a Southerner is going to approach you again, he's either...
