minor facelift

we did a little cosmetic surgery over the weekend, and put a sweet new door on the shop. Imagine the world of treasures that lay beyond the threshold of the doorway.

So these photos are a few weeks old, when the Portland area got bitch slapped by Mother Nature's icy palm. Basically the snow was very charming at first, and slowly overstayed it's welcome and became a transit nightmare. Of course this meant that the city of Portland would completely shut down, cockblocking all businesses big and small. These pictures are from when it was charming and pretty, shortly before it became icy and treacherous. 

completely snowed in.
the show must go on.
I tried to snowboard
down couch street.
It was very slow and boring, 
but I still could
and that's all that matters.


We are super stoked to announce the arrival of Vagabond Skateboards at Hasbeen Design Company. Vagabond is the creation of brothers, Brian and Kurt Hester. All boards are 100% recycled from retired skateboards, that still meet high standards of quality and stability. Boards with chips on their noses or tails, are hand shaped into cruisers, optimized for maximum gnarlitude. Each board is one of a kind, and comes pre-grip taped for $25. Come check one out today.

Kara Burke's opening reception

Last friday we had a little get together, to celebrate the artwork of Kara Burke. Her charming illustrations brighten the hearts of all who see them. The turn out was great, and everybody had their fair share of wine and art. If you didn't get a chance to come down during the reception, Kara's works will be up at Hasbeen Design Company (521 ne couch st. Portland, OR 97232) all January long. Make sure to keep your eyes and ears open for our Feburary show.
