He designs and builds the beautiful propellers that you can see in the gallery/gift portion of Fringe.
He is famous for me in many ways and in the minds of his other children as well, due to the fact that he leads kind of like a warrior with an extreme amount masculine energy, but rationalizes with a certain amount of humble humility through the many lessons in his life . He is also famous for his passive yet completely accurate moments with parental advice via historical sayings.
I hold many reoccurring memories of things he has said for the past 30 years like "History repeats itself", "You like to learn the hard way" , "There's only one way to solve a math problem", "Leave the boys alone", and one of my favorite which he loves so much himself that as an adolescent he once carved each letter into a clay cup project he completed in school.. " Wherever you go, there you are".
I think that these sayings are all representative of different eras and decades survived by his generation and so for some reason when I look at the new vintage collection at Fringe, I immediately think of my father and all of the things he must have seen during the times that these beauties were being produced on American soil, with one of a kind, strong as nails fiber and absolutely stunning, timeless dyes. Aside from all of the basic information that stares you in the face when you see a product like this, there are the things you don't necessarily know unless you yourself are a collector. Some of the pieces are so rare and so well priced that the buyer is practically getting away with stealing. That is just a glimpse of how lucky we are to have them here for our ogling, feeling and creating.
Please come see them and get started on anything your little heart can dream up. They make incredible bags, skirts, blouses, I have a pretty healthy clientele that drives from the city to pick through these beauties, so don't let them slip away, for you will never see the same piece again.
See you Soon!
