sears catalog…..

In an age where catalogs no longer get the kind of attention they used to, I love looking at these old ads from the 50’s. I’m just in awe of the colors in this advertisement.  I’m also in awe of how cool these guitars look…..I love how they are all under a 100 bucks!  The best and one I would personally like to have is the All-In-One Guitar Outfit. So RAD!!!! It also says that it “Gives more power, tone effects and sound then outfit left….includes dual-pickup guitar, big amplifier with pulsing tremelo and 8 inch speaker“…….YES!



You know that we are making our way to imogene + willie only in the shop. So surprise…

Decided to give you dibs on what’s left of the other good stuff (and a treasure trove of i+w samples..)

Get ready: $20, $30, $40 and $60 buckets.

Wednesday Only.
It won’t last long!



yes please………

A Southern Surf Shop……..


Garden and Gun……….repost.BY HASKELL HARRIS | APRIL 29, 2011 

Before I met Rogue Wave Surf Shop owner Rhett Boyd (pictured below), I really didn’t have an opinion about surf shops. Don’t get me wrong, I love the surf culture here here in Charleston. I love the kind of people the sport attracts, I love the relaxed attitude, the camaraderie between surfers, and I especially love how early children get into the whole scene out at surf-centric Folly Beach. It’s pretty neat to watch all those water babies on the weekend!


But I guess I just thought all surf shops were essentially the same until Boyd hit the scene here.

Rogue Wave Surf Shop has been in existence for some time, but the store never had a brick and mortar location (all orders were placed via his blog or via trunk shows). 

That all changed last Thursday night, when Boyd officially opened his (real) doors at 69 Spring Street.

When I walked in, I totally fell for the look. The aesthetic was equal parts Billy Reid, Laird Hamilton, and imogene and willie.

CXXVI tees, Durable Goods bags, Gato Heroi surfboards, BillyKirk belts, Apolis Global denim…the list of amazing, hand-crafted, American vendors goes on and on. Check it out for yourself if you’re in town. I am so excited to see another Southerner open a mom-and-pop!
