very local stockists

We love to support and showcase local makers, but now it's time to give our own products a plug. Some may already know that 'Five Boroughs' is also home for our label 'Holly Daze'. 
Housed behind the hinging door we have our studio which gives us a chance to make one off pieces and production run products and then place them straight into the store display, or send them off to one of our wholesalers.
With a newly updated print table we have started piecing together a few forgotten projects and production on some new items.
New doorstops, with the addition of the 'watermelon' colour way which is selling well with the 1950's inspired Atomic print.

can you spot the goodness? Issue #2

After a much anticipated wait, the latest issue of CHOPPED is now on sale.
This issue (#2) covers traditional hot rods and customs from Australia and U.S.A in these
feature articles:
* Kustom Nationals
* U.S.A from the vault
* Early Australian Hot Rodders
* Kustom Kulture weekend
* Day of the drags
* Australia from the vault
* How to: Metal flake

For those who haven't heard about this new magazine to hit the stands, it's been put together by three mates who grew up in Central Victoria- otherwise known as the hot rod Capital of Australia.
In the pages they'll show us car shows far and near, include images taken from back when hot rodding was in it's beginning and for all those who love a center fold they've even included one in this pocketful of rodding!
