Rich Graffiti Name Plate Ring | 100% Made in U.S.A.
RICH graffiti name ring, in loving memory of Richard Oates, of East River Skate Shop @ Franklin and Greenpoint Ave. Greenpoint, Brooklyn NY.
Richard was a chef and dedicated skateboarder. He started his own community based skate shop to have more time to spend with his wife and newly born daughter. I randomly stumbled upon the Oates Family's shop by luck to find a kind, congenial man working the counter (Richard). He told us about the life he had left behind as a chef to pursue his passion's, family's and community's necessities. He built the shop hoping for a better future. Sadly he was killed in January 2016 following a skateboarding accident on the street. This ring is to commemorate his kind nature and dedication to passion. We don't have to be wealthy to be Rich.
All proceeds from these pieces go to the East River Skateshop to keep this Brooklyn neighborhood dream alive.
