I put my sticker on right away!
Sometimes you have get ‘em when the price is right. Plenty of new arrival inventory for the shop! *YES* we will be opening the @graycatmusic record shop sometime in January in the current @areyouinretrograde location. I wish Jordan the best as she expands and many thanks to Jeff with Cityvolve for always being supportive and helping me find this cool little location in the heart of Park Circle! The record booth in @thestationparkcircle will remain open until the end of January. I couldn’t have grown my biz these last few years without Sharon at The Station 🙏. AND without my friend Jonas Silvia's Records I could not have won the auction. He has the skills! 👍💪 Plus I will be located around the corner from my aunts new shop Black Octopus Mercantile!

What are you holding in your hands what is blue?
If you love coastal vibes and all things surf, beach & outdoors like we do, you'll want to check out the cool line of original stand-out designs (available on everything from funky cool stickers, sweats, t-shirts and more) at Black Octopus Mercantile Local artist Missy Johnson has moved her operation into a storefront on East Montague in the Old Village North Charleston (where our friends at Old Hat Vintage used to be.)

...didn't we see country crooner Garth Brooks rocking the Octopus tee?

Did you know that between 2009 and 2020, there has been a 51.3% increase in the amount of cardboard litter on US roadways?* You can help keep this litter off of our roads by donating your empty cardboard boxes to KNCB! We use uncoated cardboard in our gardens as a pollinator-friendly w**d barrier.

Thank you to our friends at Black Octopus Mercantile for donating your boxes to KNCB! Be sure to check them out at their grand opening on November 4 at 1061 East Montague Avenue in North Charleston!

A super cool highlight of last year was a shout back from our fave actress @therealcatherinebell during one of her video chats with fans! Y’all she is definitely one of the sweetest humans and was always fun to see around Charleston when she was here filming Army Wives. She is kind and very appreciative of her fans as well as a huge inspiration to so many to get after whatever your dream is. And Black Octopus Mercantile happened in a round about way from listening to CB talk about living your life and dreams can really come true with determination and hustle hard! You rock CB thank you for everything!
