Thank You Facebook

Thank You Facebook

Badge Hunting in Madison

Badge Hunting in Madison

  The Antiques Mall of Madison was crazy good. That place is jam packed. I keep finding that the smaller the town, the better the ‘tiques. Wichita had a great shop as well, just not a big. This place was a honey hole with over 100 dealers. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the...

Summit Rebrand by Duffy

Summit Rebrand by Duffy

  After a rocky initial rebrand a few month back, it looks like Duffy has turned the Summit rebrand into a total success. The issue most people had with the mark was with the letter spacing and it looks like that’s been adjusted though-out the whole packaging system. I really love the addition of the...
