ABOUT THE TRUCK AND THE BOUTIQUE CAFE:

END OF THE A COMES FROM ROCKAWAY BEACH BEING THE LAST STOP ON THE A TRAIN. IT ALSO HAPPENS TO BE THE FURTHEST DISTANCE COVERING SUBWAY LINE PART OF THE MTA.

OUR TRUCK (NICKNAMED HOWIE) WAS ONCE A POOL SUPPLY TRUCK THAT WE TRANSFORMED WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY & FRIENDS. THE INSPIRATION BEING A BEACH BUNGALOWS WALK IN CLOSET, ON WHEELS OF COURSE. FILLED WITH GOODS SOURCED MAINLY LOCALLY, HANDCRAFTED & SOMETIMES ONE OF A KIND. WE TAKE PRIDE IN WORKING WITH INDEPENDENT DESIGNERS AND COLLABORATING IDEAS TO CREATE ITEMS THAT OUR CUSTOMERS CAN CHERISH.

OUR BOUTIQUE CAFE IS LOCATED AT 437 BEACH 129TH STREET BELLE HARBOR NY 11694 AND THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS 718-490-1412. HOWIE IS STILL A TRAVELER AND WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ON HIS WHEREABOUTS.

BETH HAS A B.A. IN MASS COMMUNICATIONS FROM IONA COLLEGE AND HER MASTERS IN MEDIA STUDIES FROM THE NEW SCHOOL. WHILE AT THE NEW SCHOOL HER PASSION FOR NEW MEDIA AND NEW IDEAS WAS IGNITED AND STARTING THE MOBILE BOUTIQUE HAS GIVEN HER THE OPPORTUNITY TO PUT THOSE TWO THINGS TOGETHER.
