Today we’d like to introduce you to Sir Froderick.
Sir Froderick, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Me and the Mrs. love to thrift and vend our finds at various swap meets. Over the years, together, we’ve accumulated a very large vintage collection and always danced around with the idea of opening a shop showcasing our passions for hip hop culture and vintage fashion.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Running Fivespace is a consistent roller coaster ride, I say this in the most exciting and positive way.
FIVESPACE – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Fivespace is a curated shop designed to serve the increasing number of consumers interested in vintage design and music products. The store buys music, apparel, and accessories from a variety of distributors that provide good quality and dependable service. Fivespace will resell them “as is” to our target market. Fivespace specializes in hip hop records and cassettes that are current, and some that are hard to find at existing music stores. The store will only carry a limited amount of used records, cassettes. accessories like stickers, pins, patches, and books.
Fivespaces takes great pride in offering our customers the opportunity to special-order specific items they are looking for if they are not in stock. We will also have an official web site where everything we have in stock will be posted and available for purchase by mail order.
Unlike a trip to the “other” vinyl stores, visiting Fivespace makes you part of a community of vintage lovers and can inspire you to not only discover new music like the other shops but also “fresh” threads you might never have otherwise come across in a record store. The owners of Fivespace are obsessives with an incredible wealth of knowledge about vintage items. A quick chat with us about your interests will offer up a whole new world of styles, artists, and genres to discover that are tailored to your individual tastes – a service that will never be replicated by the “other” stores.
Also, none of the competition has anywhere near the vast selection of hip hop vinyl and cassettes we carry in all of San Diego… it is our niche.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I would define success as being able to consistently achieve personal goals and maintain them.
