  •   timatosauce @thechloeroth don't sweat it. It's not the length of your roller that counts, it's how thickly you apply the second coat. 3mon
  •   thechloeroth @timatosauce Tim I have no idea what that means but I'm pretty sure roller length counts for a lot 3mon
  •   timatosauce @thechloeroth i'm just sayin, it's not the size of the brush, it's how you tickle the bristles. 3mon

tylerturtle “Our original apartment was actually in storefront, which was not necessarily legal. Someone told us that we should make the storefront look like a shop. We put little displays up in the windows, but how were we going to make it look like a shop that isn’t open? I found a ‘Sorry We’re Closed’ sign, took India ink and painted over the C and the D. Then I rearranged the E to make a T. We hung it in the door and it said ‘Sorry We’re Lost.’ We were just three dudes that arrived in SF not knowing anyone. No connections, no job offers. We were like, ‘Are we gonna stay here or not?’ And ‘Sorry We're Lost’ was just that. Now that Mixed Nuts is a real shop, it’s always posted because it was how it all began, being lost on purpose.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “I like to say that my shops are a curated assortment of precious junk. I am always hunting for the stuff that is the coolest you can find. When I see my objects, I picture them in a little white wall gallery on a little pedestal by themselves, singing. I studied design and I’m very connected to aesthetics and thought process of design. Certain things were designed once and it was right. A lot of time those designs are mimicked and replicated over time. There is an integrity that the original objects hold and those imitations don’t have the same value or quality. When people redesign these objects, they pull from something that they can’t get and I want to sell the stuff you can’t get.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “One of the best aspects of biking through the city is being able to scavenge on the go. In my business I’m looking for things and that’s sort of always in the background of my mind. It doesnt feel like work but I'm always searching for something and I never know what its gonna be. On the bike, you’re able to take those random streets and unexpected turns. I end up finding all types of stuff that maybe got put out 5 minutes ago. You’ll find that old stuff on the street that was once, and still is charming. You can put it in your pocket and keep riding.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “When I moved in San Francisco, I had a bicycle and a bag. Those were my belongings. I came with two friends who had just ridden their bikes across the country. I remember the first day we arrived, we were looking for apartments and we did it all by bike. We rode out to the Dogpatch, the Mission, Cole Valley and all the way out to the Richmond and ate Vietnamese sandwiches. Then we rode to the ocean and I was sold. From then on my bike was my primary means of transportation to find food, an apartment, find things to get myself situated and settled in the city.” -@mixednutssf
