Unique LA Spotlight: MNKR

If you don’t think that the Carnivore vs. Veggie tee is awesome then you are not human! As I was perusing MNKR’s offerings, this particular design caught my eye. It’s an obvious play on those vintage boxing posters, which I am also a fan of. This California based maker of crafty tees definitely has some interesting designs. The Future Is Now features nice type treatment and Salon Lady is vintage chic.

MNKR has been around for quite some time now, 7 years to be exact. However, they just received a Registered Trademark for MNKR. Wondering what MNKR stands for? Looking for a name, the founder decided to go with one that start with the same letter as his own name, which is M. He went with MNKR, which is short for “moniker”, which is another word for “a name.” Interesting, huh!

You can find MNKR at Unique LA in Booth 208.

During the next few days I’ll be featuring the awesome clothing brands that will be setting up booths at Unique LA, an independent design and gift show that will take place on April 24th thru the 25th at the California Market Center.

I Run On Biofuel

It’s 2009 and so why aren’t all cars being run with some type of biofuel? Forget fossil fuels, that was so last century. We’ve got to lose our dependence on oil. The United States must play catch up and start innovating so that we can stop relying on foreign countries for our fuel. OK, I’ll get off of my little soap box now!

You can profess your interest in biofuel by wearing this shirt from our friends at Rizzo Tees. I am sure that many of the readers can relate to that mug of ice cold beer. I think, however, that the design could have featured a corn on the cob and would have made just as much sense, in fact, I think it would have been a much more powerful and insightful shirt had it been a piece of corn instead of a mug of beer. But that might just be me!

You can pick up I Run On Biofuel from Rizzo Tees for $15! Want to know a secret? You can save 10% on your entire Rizzo Tees order by using the coupon code “COTY” at checkout. Score!
