High holiday: 4/20 traces roots to these high school stoners

They keep those records in a rented safe deposit box in a San Francisco bank where they also store other documentation, including postmarked letters they exchanged in the mid-1970s discussing 420. The San Francisco bank’s address, as it happens, is 420 Montgomery Street.

    High holiday: 4/20 traces roots to these high school stoners
    Friday is April 20, or 4/20. That's the numerical code for marijuana's high holiday, a celebration and homage to pot's enduring and universal slang for smoking. Festivities are planned worldwide, culminating with a synchronized smoke at 4:20 p.m. local time.

Reclaimed Sewing at Bodine High!

1701 n. 2nd street

    Reclaimed Sewing at Bodine High!
    Many of our regular customers are educators in the School District of Philadelphia. We always love to see the creative ways they're able to promote reuse with their students! Marita Fitzpatrick, a teacher from Bodine High School for International Affairs, recently picked up a whole bunch of reclaimed fabric from our $1 per pound fabric section to use in a sewing lesson with her students.
