#1276 Snapped - scrapwall

Name: scrapwall
Where: At his store.
Occupation: The one at ONE. 5O4 Krd
From: Auckland CBD, now 5O4 K Road.
Favourite place: "Home is where the heart is."
Obsessed with: "Beautiful, simple things."
Advice to youngsters: "In the infamous words of my old mate Dekko, 'If it feels good, touch it.' Really though, I'd say take all the advice you can get, listen, learn, but always do your own thing. I think Louise Bourgeois put it well when she was asked to advise young artists. 'Tell your own story, and you will be interesting,' she responded. 'Don't get the green disease of envy. Don't be fooled by success and money. Don't let anything come between you and your work.' Basically - do what you love."

Nice. My boyf and I went in recently. He's now addicted to the boxers he got there and demanding MORE! They're apparently AMAZING.

It'd be nice if you posted links to these stores occasionally- instead of just rerouting them back to the page link category. Share some of the traffic love: You get content, they get sales. Simple.

Fair call anon - but Scrap's store does not yet have a website (that I could find, anyway).
