Check her out wearing a t-shirt I made specially for her which says "Happy Birthday" on the front, and "Sorry for Your Loss" on the back.  She was attending a birthday party in the afternoon, and a memorial concert in the evening and needed something suitable.


All in all, she is a wildly creative person who makes vibrant, fun, and functional art for a living, so show her some love!

Go Trailer, Go First Class vintage patch, anyone?

Friend Promotion Friday: Up the Ladder Painting & Power Washing


Hello and welcome to Friend Promotion Friday!

Self-promotion may be hard and awkward, but friend promotion is easy and fun.

My friend Justin Kaiser does a fantastic job with indoor and outdoor painting at Up the Ladder Painting and Pressure Washing Co.  

After 4 years of dog claws and puddles, you could say our deck needed major attention. 



Nacho has been gone for 2 years now and look how bad it was already back then.


Justin is an excellent communicator who is honest, direct, and very reasonable about pricing and time.

We had some storms the first few days and he was able to continue sanding and painting through the rain by creating an ingenious "tarp city." 


Our deck was particularly challenging as its cracks were filled with pounds of dog fur. Justin removed all of this!



After a ton of sanding, two coats of paint, and a massive ladder and tarp operation, here is Justin applying the finishing touches.



It looks brand new, we can't believe it.  Our chipped, buckled, mildewy deck feels smooth and looks fantastic - our expectations were greatly exceeded!


Justin is also very friendly and tidy and wonderful with pets. If you are in the Asheville area and have a deck or house that needs some freshening, call Justin at Up the Ladder Painting and Power Washing!



excellent with pets

Friend Promotion Friday: Robin Egg Surprise Vintage


Hello and welcome to Second edition of Friend Promotion Friday!

Self-promotion may be hard and awkward, but friend promotion is easy and fun. 

My friend Allison Griswold sells vintage clothing, toys, and paper ephemera on Etsy at Robin Egg Surprise

It's easy to recommend Allison's shop because I have known her for several years and she is extremely kind and thoughtful, and will work with any customer before or after the sale to make sure they are happy. 

She is based in Indiana, has a great eye for vintage, and finds some wonderfully fun things.

How cute is this toddler fire chief t-shirt


https://www.etsy.com/listing/451333838/70s-toddler-t-shirt-fire-chief-striped

She has an amazing collection of (cheap) old photos


https://www.etsy.com/shop/robineggsurprise?ref=l2-shopheader-name&section_id=16713150

Check out her gushing reviews from customers. Nothing but 5 stars all day long!

I do not have any photos of Allison in my t-shirts, but her 4 year old son wears t-shirts and hoodies from me, and I do have a photo of her with Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings after she gave them a bunch of vintage clothing, which they loved and immediately wore on stage for the rest of the tour. 


So if you like vintage things, head on over to Robin Egg Surprise on Etsy and buy something, or buy two things from Allison, you will not be disappointed! 

She also has a twitter if you're into that: Robin Egg Surprise twitter

Friend Promotion Friday: WNC Debt Law


Hello and welcome to the inaugural edition of Friend Promotion Friday!

Self-promotion may be hard and awkward, but friend promotion is easy and fun. 

The first friend(s) I'd like to promote are Asheville bankruptcy lawyer - WNC Debt Law - The Law Offices of Kevin J Radey

http://www.wncdebtlaw.com/

If you are in Western North Carolina and are having trouble paying your bills, WNC Debt Law can help. 

Kevin Radey has been my live-in boyfriend and joint tenant with right of survivorship for the past 8 years, and I can guarantee there is nobody out there more dedicated to protecting the rights of consumer debtors in the face of big banks.  The majority of his clients find themselves in his office after medical bills, job loss, and divorce.  He is hell bent on making sure debtors are treated fairly. Kevin has a huge heart, and is compassionate and relentless in his pursuit of achieving the best results for his clients.  He works with bankruptcy and student loan cases. 

Michelle Rogers is Kevin's assistant, and she has been a dear, dear friend to me for the past 9 years. She is extremely positive and friendly and and excellent communicator who helps clients collect their documents and makes sure their cases run smoothly.

You don't have to take it from me, check out their Google reviews. Keep in mind how uncomfortable it might be for clients to have their public Google accounts associated with a personal bankruptcy, and see how intent they are on expressing gratitude anyway. 


I am going to try to put photos in these Friend Promotion Friday posts of the friends wearing Skippy Haha Vintage t-shirts. Luckily, Kevin wears nothing but SHV t-shirts, and Michelle did some modeling for me back in the day. 



I sincerely hope nobody reading this needs their services, but if you do, there is no better office to call.
