Big Love from Big River Owner

Thumper BoomboxBig River - one of our all time favorite vintage suitcase boomboxes, found a loving home with Anna Brayko and her boyfriend.  In fact, Anna may well be one of the best girlfriends on the planet, after giving it to her lucky man as a present. Recently, Anna wrote a terrific letter to tell us about her Thumper experience:

I just gave the Thumper as a gift to my boyfriend last night and he loved it. He actually said that this is by far the best gift that he has ever received from anyone. So thank you! If it weren't for you, I wouldn't have gotten such a response.
We tried out the Thumper and it works wonderfully. Once we discovered the little button that turned on the base, life got that much better. Listening to dubstep with the button pushed in in the middle of the night with sleeping neighbours is a highly risky activity, but we were dangerous and tried it out. I loved the sound!
I want to thank you for your amazing customer service. I was pleasantly shocked to see what a great deal of effort you put in into accommodating my preferences. I am glad I got to experience such superb service.
I would also like to add that the hand-written card that you included with the package put a smile on my face. I truly think that with this impersonal mode of communication the card added a hear-warming touch.
I thank the entire Curious Provisions team once again for the lovely product and outstanding service!

– ANNA BRAYKO

Anna, thank you and your boyfriend for the kind words. This warmed our little hearts!



The Revival of Vintage Marketplace in Atlanta

Friends, Romans, countrymen, join Curious Provisions of Thumper Boombox fame at the Goat Farm in Atlanta on June 30th and July 1st 2012.  For very good reason, we will be offering our wares at The Revival's Vintage Marketplace. Seriously, if you miss this, you will be kicking yourself in the forehead and I don't think that will be very good for your hamstrings. 

The market will have all kinds of local vintage sellers and designers. We'll all be combining to form a giant robotic Voltron of curated vintage wares ranging from handmade jewelry to, uh, I don't know – kick ass sounding vintage suitcase boomboxes? Indeed, yes. The Goat Farm's non-traditional rustic auditoriums are going to hold over 100 vintage vendors, seminars, and live music. Oh, and there will be food too! FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, YOU CANNOT MISS THIS EVENT!  And you can multiply that sentiment times infinity since we'll be there playing tunes and selling Thumper boomboxes to the coolness-starved masses. 

Pertinents:

The Goat Farm Atlanta

1200 Foster St (in W. Midtown behind Bacchanalia and next to Forsyth Fabrics.).

Tickets are a mere $5 bucks and puppies & parking are Free.

Join us!!!

Red Bull Soapbox Derby ›   Video ›  


Quick Thoughts & the #30 Car at the Atlanta Red Bull Soap Box Derby

Here are some top observations and thoughts about the big race today in the A-T-L. Before I get to the run-down, let me give a gigantic THANK YOU to Andy, Adam, Billy and Brian for letting Curious Provisions sponsor their car (Hot & Corny #2 - Car #30), with the best name at the derby. We had a nice little set up with 3 Thumpers in pit row next to their car, and we gave away all our free stickers and flyer cards. Folks were mighty tickled! And we had a ton of fun.

UPDATE: Hot & Corny #2 finished in 9th place with a time of 43 seconds! That's 9th out of 38 cars! CONGRATULATIONS BOYS!

Obvious Thought of the Day
Why for the love of God did I not wear sunscreen!!! Seriously. The next few days are going to suck.

Simple Stat of the Day
We gave out all 100 "flyer" cards, most of them in the first hour. We hope ya'll will take a look around and like us on facebook.

Number One Question of the Day
"If I have a suitcase, can you make a custom one for me?" Why yes we can! Send us a note on Facebook or email info@curiousprovisions.com and we'll get started!

Number One Observation of Folks from the Day
"You guys make (or sell) these!??". Why yes we do! And I now know a lot of folks who are scheming to buy one quite soon.

Number One Kick Ass Derby Start & Run of the Day
No need for words, watch the video!
 

Number Two Crowd Observation of the Day
"Where does it plu---oh, it has a battery and an amp? Cool!!!". I just want to say that these are real quotes, not just my mimicked versions.

Final Thought of the Day
We all had so much damn fun, it should be a illegal. It was a great day for Car #30 and everyone was super beautiful and friendly. Thanks Atlanta!

Mark Damiano Original Designs, Exclusively @ Curious Provisions

World War Words

If you don't know who Mark Damiano is, you need to check yourself.  His beautifully twisted designs can merge Motley Crue with the Dalai Lama to make a symphony.  

Ok, maybe that's a bit much, but still - his designs are unique and stunning.

Don't believe us? Check out our iPhone 4/4s skins which feature a few of Mark's favorite designs - and for only $15 bucks, you will want to give your thumbs a break from texting and start talking again, just so you can show it off... which means you will have to start saying things like LOL and LMFAO out loud.  Weird.

Check out our exclusive collection of iPhone skins

Hi De Ho Demo - Rough Cut

We're currently putting together a bunch of videos to demo the cases. You really need to hear these things to believe it. The sound quality is tight. So let's take an early look at a Thumper in action. This is a rough cut of our first demo for Thumper "Hi De Ho". 

Oh, and look closely at the bottom of the case halfway through the video - the thing actually starts walking down the table. Bass baby!

This is actual sound from the case in real time. Use headphones for best results in hearing the sound quality. More to come!
