“Brand New In Box”
PUBLISHED GOODS: BNIB: LOS ANGELES
It was a beautiful day in sunny California and I got a chance to hangout with the storeowners of BNIB Alex and Jamie as well as their dogs Obey and Sis. I sat them down for a little Q&A. Alex and Jamie recently purchased an old truck and turned it into the first mobile shoe slangin machine. This crafty concept allows them to sell their products anywhere they go. You may have spotted them at the Well-Connected sale in DTLA this past March. The truck definitely stirred up a lot of conversation!
