No doubt by this point quite a few people have started to wonder "OK Mark, why Knockaround Sunglasses"?  The answer to that question is longer than you'd expect. This may or may not come as a surprise to you, but I am a sunglasses nut. Some people buy shoes, others jackets, others focus on underpants, I love sunglasses. I've been that way since I was a kid. Maybe it's because I grew up in the 80's, maybe it was the movies I watched, maybe it's because I'm pretty light sensitive, who knows. Cheap crappy sunglasses have ALWAYS been a pet...

Florida, Good Times, Life, Memory, Rental, Summer, Twisted Palms Trading Co., Vacation -

We all have those favorite memories we bring back from every vacation or adventure we go through in life. Some of them are just fun, others exciting, then you have the special memories that you hold on to forever. Some background to make sense of what's to come is in order.

I know winter is a difficult time for those of us who love sun, beaches, and beautiful ocean waves. Most of the nation has to put up with sub-zero weather for at least a couple months out of the year, and the northern states even longer. Just remember that it will all be over soon, and the beach is just a couple months away! Until then, remember....

Beginnings, Good Times, Life, Lime, Margarita, Palm, Real, Salt, Tree, Tropical, Twisted Palms Trading Co. -

Starting something is rarely an easy process. Whether it's a website, relationship, new school or job, or even a family beginnings are rarely all we would like them to be. There is always something you need, or something you didn't even know you needed, and difficulties unforeseen making things harder than what you would like.  Personally I like to think of beginnings as ingredients for a margarita. When you look at a pile of limes, a bottle of tequila, triple sec, glasses and some salt some wouldn't necessarily believe all of that will come together to become the iconic adult...
