kickstarter is a kicka$s website that helps small businesses earn investors – lots of them with small contributions as opposed to one with a huge donation.

a personal inspiration, design glut, has set up a kickstarter page + is offering pre-order of limited edition necklaces as a vehicle to fund their creativity

i love the clever chain usage

pre-order these and more here.  go on, support small design duo liz kinnmark + kegan fisher.  small businesses are rad, women run businesses are fab and small women run businesses are my favorite !


having been away from coney for several days, i conveniently missed the awful storm that passed through it <well i felt it where i was, but no comparison> upon my return, i noticed the denny’s ice cream sign + figured they were revamping it for summer season.  on the boardwalk, plenty of vendors paint over old signs to freshen up + make as vibrant as possible.

unfortunately for denny, this was not the case – that is water damage.  and to the left, the awning from the coney island museum is busted.  these damages <and more from the neighborhood> have been cataloged on the coney island usa message board. oy.
