Meet the Neighbors: Comet Skateboards

Beautiful Things, Color, Ithacans, Publicity, Special Events

If you’ve ever been upstairs checking out our men’s department, record shop, or pinball machine, you may have already met them. Did you smell the fresh sawdust? Hear the hum of a sander? That’s Comet. They’re pretty cool.

Comet has been next door for about a year now, but have only recently opened their shop so that you can purchase their stunning, hand-printed boards. Walking through their shop feels more like walking through a gallery than a skate store, but the art is not just for looking. Check out some of their pieces online for just a taste of the beauty that could be carrying you down the street.

To commemorate the occasion, we gave our window a spring makeover in Comet’s signature orange hues, starring one of their handmade longboards! We hope they like it… maybe they’ll make us a board with a crazy vintage floral print?

Detail shots of the dresses, and more of our favorite orange objects after the jump!
