This is due to the health concerns for our staff and customers, as well as increasingly strict state and federal quarantine mandates. We will spend most of next week evaluating what we can do to best serve our customers, figuring out how to optimize our resources, and maintaining our online store.
We appreciate your continued support.
- Our Last Day open will be 3/22 and we are not sure how long this will take but some of the mandates say April 30th, so It could be as far out as then.
- Please tune into the Live-Streams this weekend and give us whatever support you can.
- Unless previous arrangements were made we cannot give cash for trade-ins for a while. (at least this weekend and possibly beyond.)
- We will live-stream an update on Sat. April 2 @ 2pm to let you know where we are at and maybe pimp some merch so stay tuned for that as well.

We are raising money to Annex the space next door, this will create a large event room independent from the storefront, have extra space for storage, and small office for the owner. Also, if things go well, expand our current storefront by removing the backroom wall, creating a proper dressing room, and putting in a separate receiving counter for trade-ins and new merchandise.
In order to make this work we need your help!
