17 Apart in Richmond Magazine

We were floored to find a blurb about 17 Apart in this month's issue of Richmond Magazine when our copy arrived in the mail!

Find us in the "Love It!" side section of page 25 where Richmond Magazine staffers share their minor obsessions for the month. Mary and I were like "Us? A minor obsession?" It was beyond humbling and exciting to find — especially coming from another creative and kindred spirit like Mollee Sullivan.

We're particularly tickled with our mention being shared in conjunction with a spread highlighting 3 of Richmond's most stereotypical fashions —The Northside Parent, The West Ender and The Hipster:

For those of you familiar with RVA, Mary and I are both Richmond natives. I grew up in Midlothian while Mary grew up in The West End before moving to The Fan with her mom as a teenager. We're not sure which of the 3 categories we'd classify into the most, but are thinking it might be some sort of hybrid along the lines of The West Ender with a healthy dose of The Northside Parent and a touch of Hipster influence? 

This also reminded me of a bumper sticker battle back when I was in high school (before Mary was born, ouch!) which classified three Richmond neighborhoods and each had its own slogan:

Southside: By Invitation Only!

West End: For Members Only!

The Fan: Who Invited You?

I wish I would have saved the Fan sticker as it would be a fun one to pull out now!

Thanks Mollee and Richmond Magazine for the shout out — the feeling is mutual!
