7th Annual Last Stop Shop!

by nocmadmin on December 24, 2012

Somehow we’ve made it 7 years without any good photos of our annual event. We decided to change that this year and Miss Malaprop brought her camera and enlisted her bestie, Ash in Fashion, to help snap some pics.


This year we also had a Stormtrooper to help spread some holiday fun. Here is David with a matching shaving kit case by Kendra of Bonga-Chop Designs.

Heather of Unique Products has the best security guard in town.


These girls acted like they just saw Justin Bieber or the Beatles. But really, they saw a member of Vader’s Fist.
