"You don't think it's too subtle, Marty? You don't think people are gonna drive by and not see the sign?" A friend was throwing away a broken old #kenner#therealghostbusters#firehouse so I took it, painted it up a bit and added a new sign, some brick decals and a few odds and ends and now it's a good facade for my #Ghostbusters movie figures. #springcleaning
I love my town. After performing a ritual-rich and emotional ceremony tonight (we all cried) at the Firehouse in old Sacramento, I came back to my car and this view and I just thought how I love my town. I spent many years working at law firms down here, often burning the midnight oil. Now I do something completely different but all the memories are here through all the years. #lifepassages#changes#sacramentowedding#firehouse#content
Definitely a lot of unique buildings in the old town area but this one will always have a place in my heart. Like many other buildings downtown now, sadly this one now sits empty like many others. Originating as a firehouse, this building has had many different uses. Back in the 90's it was a local bike shop and years later it became a meeting spot for Alcoholics Anonymous which played a big part of my sobriety early on years ago. Hopefully one day it finds some renewed purpose once again.
After we round and slick the edges, we add our custom stamping. All stamps smaller than 3/4 inch are done by hand. For stamps 3/4 inch and above, we use a 1 ton arbor press to apply pressure more evenly to make for a cleaner impression.
