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!
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.
See you next year! Were you there? Drop us a line, let us know what you thought!
Our pin striping artist Dean has some new skulls up for sale at our Etsy store. To check out the skulls section and other home decor goodies click here.
These skulls are hand painted and carefully pin-striped using 1shot professional pinstriper’s paint. They are resin cast (not by us, we just paint ’em) and vary in weight and size. Beautifully detailed in a classic von Dutch style, they make very unique, quite intriguing show pieces. A perfect home addition for collectors and novelty lovers of all things rockabilly / psychobilly / goth / kustom kulture or just the bizarre !
Dean’s been busy ‘striping lately and there are lots of new things up at the shop, so if you haven’t been by lately check it out for new skulls, purses and more home decor and art prints by our artist Deanna.
