Reference Library Comes to Life

If you have spent any time on Reference Library you know that the guy at the controls, Mr. Andy Beach, knows a thing or two about finding cool stuff. A lot of what makes up RL are treasures found on eBay, often items Andy didn’t win. Starting Friday November, 28th Reference Library will come to life at the progressive SoHo store Kioski for a week long pop-up shop of the good things you would normally only see on the blog. The difference now is that everything will be available to be purchased right then and there. Andy sent a sneak peak at some of the offerings which I have posted below. Be sure to stop by Kiosk to show your support and pick up some goodies.
