It's Always Sunny @ Minney's




Many of you may not know that we rent out items from the store for parties, photoshoots, birthdays etc... but every once in a while Hollywood shows up for something kind of cool. A few months ago I worked with the set designers from the TV show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." They needed to build a run-down houseboat for one of their episodes and realized they had struck gold when they walked into the store.

They asked if I wanted to come up to the set... either to the houseboat itself for exterior shots or to the Fox Studios lot for where our items were being used. I've been on boats... I wanted to see the set. Here's a couple pictures of our gear and the cast of the show.

The Blog is Back



My sincerest apologies to those of you that have endured three long weeks with no updates from the store. I just got back from Boston for my college graduation, and needless to say blogging was lower on the list than drinking, partying, and a few other "ing's."

Things are heating up at the store as the El NiƱo storms seem to have let up and we've had some gorgeous days with many more to come. For those of you that don't know, we're less than a month away from our annual swap meet, and this year's promises to be as big as ever. There are still spots available if you're looking to sell.

Lastly Ernie and I got to check out the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA as well as the Boston Yacht Club... pretty neat.
