Apron designed by our friend Andy Beach, made by Workers in Japan.

Andy is curating a real world version of his blog Reference Library at Kiosk in Manhattan, November 28–December 7 (with an opening party on Black Friday, November 28, 7–10pm: I assume Andy will be there and you should stop by to meet him---a very cool guy).

95 Spring St. between Broadway and Mercer
Second Floor

If you don't read Reference Library you're missing out on an amazing world of folk design, obscure case goods, kids' stuff, trench art, unusual typography, cool old clothes, and lots more stuff mostly inspired by his adventures exploring the craziest corners of eBay and beyond.
