my second retail stor ei shared a stor ein soho with mikayel tesfaye and the ronsons as i designed this space that was at 493 franklin avenue in Booklyn ny. The Brooklyn Chamber of Commece even had meetings there in the year 200 and 2001 great legendary rappers like lord Jamal from the legendary ra group Brand nubiam Marley marl tons of firemen kids and police officers signed the walls and enjoyed fresh foods a cafe in the hood of Bedstuy but it was across from a library and train station and a middle school. so it was a success as my first retail store design. art and healthy life combining. i paid for every material in the store out of my pocket. and the rent and staff that ran it a true investment as a designer wanting to experiment with retail as art. and it worked.
