About Me


I realized this week that I've been maintaining this little blog o'mine for over 17 months now. Over that time I've focused on shop news primarily. Now, I think it's time to give this project a bit more respect and thought. I'd like to introduce more personality for you, my readers. Many of you already know me on some level - but maybe you don't and might be interested in who is behind UN. I have many stories about the history of how I arrived to where I am and where I plan to go with Urban Nostalgia in the future.
