Vampires, Vinny Chase and Schmatta

Did anyone catch the fantastic HBO documentary: Schmatta: Rags to Riches?
There are some really terrific interviews and footage. Though it does not reveal anything we did not know, it is excellent film making.


Look for info on the Robert Rodriguez sale coming up next week!

Recycling for a Good Cause

We now have glass/aluminum recycling bins on each floor courtesy of the hard work of Wimberly Griffith of the Namaste Showroom.  Wimberly is working with Water Wells for Africa on this recycling program.
The pennies, nickels and dimes from recycled bottles and cans will add up to go to this amazing non-profit organization that is dedicated to drilling and maintaining safe water sources in the rural communities of Malawi, Central Africa.

We hope you can help by  recycling.  It would also be SO AMAZING if you could sort your recyclables.
Thanks for helping!
