Free Skate Mag - Dave Mackey

Real recognise real! Independent skate stores are the pillars holding up our community; worldwide they support each other, their customers, their scene and skateboarding as a whole. Why the fuck would anyone not support one? Unfortunately it’s getting increasingly harder to survive as a skater owned shop, especially without compromising legitimacy. Liverpool’s mighty Lost Art shop closed its doors after 17 years only to re-open five months later with a different approach. Dave Mackey gives us his insights into adapting, diversifying and the independent shop community’s support.

Our mate Guy Jones interviewed Mackey about how Lost Art became the Useless Wooden Toys Society and much more for Free Skate Mag.
