Skater Owned Shops, Christmas 1989

Skater Owned Shops: Stampy's and Soul SkatesThe ‘Skater Owned Shops’ group got together to take a double page spread of adverts for Christmas and wen to town. Stampy’s was the famous Birmingham shop at the Wheels Park which went down in flames later, although some of the people who worked there went on to open the long-running Ideal in the centre of the city.
Soul Skates took care of Chorley and Stockport with a “wanted” advert which reminds me of something similar that I once helped create for Alpine Action.
