A little over a month ago, we showcased for the second time with The Bank Sale alongside 100 other vendors and many different artists including Crenshaw’s very own, Nipsey Hussle. It was great to see so many familiar faces on set up day but even better to see all new ones this time around.
While some vendors did a lot of homework, prepared and came on board, others just dove in. There is no right or wrong way to do this, it’s just a matter who actually goes out there and does it. Once you get started, you can only progress or quit so things can stay relatively simple in that sense. I really like that The Bank Sale provides a platform for all to come and showcase regardless of how young, old, small, or big your brand is. It’s a unique perspective that provides equal opportunity and leaves the critique in the hands of the customers, not the people running the show. At the end of the day, if you want to invest in yourself and bring some weak product, you’ll be the one spending time and money.
Be sure to check the recap video and subscribe to our ddMedia channel for more from the team. Salute to everyone that took part in the last show, keep grindin.
As always, a big thank you to all our supporters that came out.

After a tough game 7 lost to the Brooklyn Nets, Demar Derozan was spotted in our Logo Crewneck as he addressed media in the postgame interview. Although the season sadly came to an end, Demar had a breakout year leading to his first all star appearance. It’s been a huge inspiration to watch his progression over the years; he came up in Compton so he was never too far from us. Trevor actually got a chance to link with him in 2010 during the NBA summer league so it’s pretty dope to see how far he’s come over the years. He’s a prime example of hard work and dedication taking you where you want to go. Seeing him in our logo crew and speaking about the things he does is truly a blessing because it’s exactly what we represent as a brand. We know he’ll be working hard this summer, looking forward to how hungry he comes back in the Fall.
