lola star & coney island is for lovers!

28 02 2011

sugar -n- thunder is a HUGE fan of coney island’s own LOLA STAR!

we love her not only because of her amazing clothing designs and super fun stores on the boardwalk and stillwell ave subway station (featuring old coney & funny faces, mermaids, badass bunnies, unicorns, pinups & tattoos, roller derby, etc!), but certainly because of her dedication to true coney island activism. she had a wish come true and transformed the childs building on the boardwalk into a fabulous roller rink for some time, is always front and center in save coney rallies, fought hard to keep her business and support others on the boardwalk, and recently brought the magic to the city and opened a temporary pop-up store in soho!

to celebrate valentine’s day and decorate the windows of her soho store (and also to hear some AMAZING love stories), she popped this question to her fans: did you fall in love in coney island? stories of love, marriage, proposals, first dates, and summer romance in the people’s playground poured in, and we’re VERY happy to announce that a certain couple of sugar -n- thunder proprietors were included…!!!

Coney Island truly is for lovers! There is an intoxicating magic in the air that inspires great love! Scientists have studied this delightful phenomenon for centuries but no explanation can be found! Millions of lovers’ lives have been struck by Cupid’s gilttering arrow in Coney Island!  The Lola Star Souvenir Boutique on the Coney Island boardwalk asked her customers to share their Coney Island Love Stories! This is the magic they shared..
