Pin-striper Dean, Bio in Fine Living Lancaster Magazine

I hate to not give this the time it fully deserves, because our experience working with Fine Living Lancaster was phenomenal. After the holiday rush I’ll edit this post. For now, here is their wonderful bio piece on dad, Dean Hogg, our pin-striper!

Sled Fest Rockabilly Car Show 2015

Better late than never, a few images from our time at Sled Fest in Duncannon, PA.

Sled Fest is a rockabilly themed, pre ’72 car show held at the Old Sled Works antiques shop. If you’ve never been to Old Sled Works it’s definitely worth the trip. The place is huge and it’s jam packed full of collectables. We didn’t have a lot of time to peruse with running our stand, but what we did see was awesome. We nabbed a Radio Flyer trike for the wee one (which is now pin-striped!) Definitely planning a trip back.

Along with the show and the antiques, the good folks from Retro Lovely magazine were there. They were shooting pin-up photography at the soda fountain inside.

There was a car show (the event is put on by the Hooligan’s Car Club) and also a pin-up contest. A lot of great folks were there including the owners of Atomic Cheesecake pin-up photography (Baltimore).

We made a lot of great connections and had an all around great time. The pre-party the night before at the River City Blues Club (Harrisburg, PA) was great, with awesome bands including Trio Agave, a surf rock band hailing from Lancaster, PA.

Skull Candle Holders, Rockabilly, Pin-Striped, His and Hers, Matching Set

You’ll never see another set like this. Matching his & hers skull candle holders. Weighing in at over 2 lbs a piece, these upcycled resin and wood candle holders are each uniquely pin-striped.

“Hers” is pink and silver/grey and “his” is fire engine red and silver/grey. While the designs are similar, they are not exact, just as each couple is unique unto themselves, but still joined as one.

Each has two grey stripes around its black wooden base. The bases are felted for non-scratch.

These are lovely as rockabilly / psychobilly / gothic home decor and would also make a lovely wedding or handfasting gift.

Each stands approximately 18″ H.

The “hers” candle base has a slight defect, which is pictured in the close up photo, and is negligible.

Candles NOT included.
