Lighten Up!

Check out the work in our new window display! Handcrafted lamps made of reclaimed wood, concrete, and metal by Brian Lopez, our friendly neighbor and owner of Glide Skateboards. These one of a kind lamps truly are a piece or art and look great in pairs.

Terrence Edwards

Our friend Terence just dropped off some vinyl macbook & iphone covers that look like wood and bring some warmth to technology! His notebooks have an equally earthy color pallet and contrasting red rubber band closure.

notebooks are for sale here at Quirk!
