Though Happen has no particular affiliation to any city, San Francisco has become homebase for all operations. With that said, catch Happen at The Goods, February 2nd at 111 Minna St. Reduced prices and some stuff from past seasons will be available. Come through!
As of January 5th, 2013, Happen has officially been in business for a year. It gets easier and easier to start a business, but more and more difficult to maintain one. From the outside looking in, it may look easy, sure, getting t-shirts printed, selling them to your friends, and making some money. It’s not at all like that and from one year of experience, I’ve learned a lot about how to run a business, how to make moves that involve money, and I’ve learned to respect brands and artists that have been doing this for years. Experience really is the best teacher. Happen, I hope, will serve as an example to friends and supporters alike, of taking the initiative and having the ambition to take the next step, bringing an idea to fruition. As corny as that may sound, I hope, in the end, that is what Happen becomes. It may not fit in the realm of streetwear or effective branding towards the targeted demographic, but it’s something different and more welcoming than many other brands out there. The brand may change as interests change, as times change, but the message will always be the same.
One year in business, I believe, is a great a feat, and hopefully one that can be trumped year after year. It can’t be done with your support. So if you’re reading this, I already have a reason to thank you. If you’ve bought something, your contribution is appreciated. It’s really humbling to have friends and people you don’t even know supporting you.
P.S. To commemorate this occasion, the tee above was released. Get a hold of one at the store.
Haven’t had pho all summer, good to finally sit down and appreciate a bowl of the good stuff.
The weather’s been nice, but the heat is draining. Went out to try and find something to do. Went through UNDFTD and ran into the homie Faso, went to DLX, then went home and crashed. In all honesty though, I really do appreciate the free time to enjoy the city.
PAPALOTE. CHICKEN ADOBO BURRITO. GREAT FIND.
Here’s one of the results from my Nishika, most of the film was useless and this is the best I could get out of it. I’ve still got a lot to learn about this camera. Other than that, it’s been a fruitful day, got my portfolio sorted out. It’s quite rough, but it’s better looking.
Instagram for Android finally came out. BEEN waiting on this. More…
