Shop Talk

Damn, already! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season, rang in the new year with good people, and are now ready to gear up for the next one. So we haven't posted in awhile, obviously. I have been fallin' back in Massachusetts with the family, I haven't been sleeping though. In fact, we have some new projects that we have been working on that I am really excited about, but I will get into that later.

First off, let's get into the post objective, which is Shop Talk. Recently I was in Boston shopping and knew that I had to make some time to check out the Bodega shop. When you're walking up to Clearway Street don't expect to see a sign, or clean windows with merchandise visuals. Instead, the spot looks like your corner convenience store with random products like paper towels and canned foods on the shelves that line the windows. Inside the concept is dope. Say hello to the boys chillen in the front room. Make your way to the back corner up to the soda machine and boom the door almost magically slides open to a clean room with hot merchandise. It seems like you are entering a secret cave of sure fire style orchestrated by the underground. The store stocks a deep selection of limited edition sneakers, tees, jackets, hats, retro sunglasses, some jewelry, and of course the ever present mix tapes. They even had a Trilladelphia mix with Low B and Deluxxx in the case. Not much for the ladies as far as apparel goes, when is there? They had a nice selection of sneakers. The staff was real chill and very friendly. Make sure to stop by Bodega the next time you are in Boston.

Bodega is located at
6 Clearway Street
Boston, MA 02115
(617) 421-1550
