Stars On Bikes...

Hi! How is everyone?
Sometime ago the girls and I went to Warner Brothers Studios, (more details on that will be in another post). When we were taking our private tour I noticed people riding around on bicycles, people that worked for the studio. I remembered that back in the day to get around the large lot of the movies studios the classic stars would ride bikes to get to point A to point B.

That's why the theme of today's post is "Stars on Bikes", I found a few neat pictures of celebrities at the studio and out and about hope you enjoy them!

The Mod Factory

 Hello! How is everyone?
This week we opened a new shop on Etsy- The Mod Factory! This was an idea we've had for a long time, even before we started this blog. On this shop we will sell items for the 1960'-1970's that encapsulate mod and groovy style. We search the west coast looking for high quality,striking and unique clothing. Find out more about the story of the shop on the About section on our Etsy.
Feel free to take a look!

Till next time--
Sincerly, Vera
