    Oh shit, how could I forget Note? Guess we can add Black Sheep to that list too.

    Someone mentioned to me the other day that Flatspot haven't posted a picture of a deck on their Insta in over a year. Couldn't be arsed to go through and look myself, but thought it was kinda lol.

    Was also thinking with my initial thought about bricks and mortar shops which make money, and I've just realised I included the shithouses Skate Hut and Skate Warehouse. But it's Friday so shrug.gif

    Flatspot hasn't been a skate shop in my eyes for years, just a streetwear shop that sells skateboards (probably a wise move financially!)

    Also think the term 'making money' is probabaly a stretch, I imagine these places are probably breaking just about even.

    Pretty sure Slam owners have been trying to shift it for a while

    There seems to be a decent amount of them out there in my view, I suppose it's just that a few of the big ones have bitten the dust like SS20.

    Others to add are Decimal, Decade, Focus is still around right? Then you have Bored, 5050 and I'm sure there are others.

    This is a very fun game but is there a point to it?

    Matter of opinion though isn't it, if you look at the latest stuff they have in stock it's all skate shoes and or clothing from skate companies. I'd expect brands that are totally unrelated to skating to be in the majority if you're to call it a streetwear shop in my opinion.

    Yeah true

    Line between skate brands and streetwear brands has definitely blurred in the past few years though.

    Yeah, there's a still a decent amount of shops around the UK. But I'm talking about the ones that are aren't going over the 30 days of due invoices, you know the ones with some actual spare cash. Cos there's not many.

    Asking if there's a point to this in the pointless topics thread sounds like something I'd ask after a few beers when I think I'm being funny.

    Go through the ads in North, there are probably more SOSs than you think.

    We all know there's a good amount of SOS's about.

    What I'm asking is how many of them aren't struggling right now?

    Might as well elaborate on my original post.

    The main irk about the hashtag thing is that it puts across the impresision of a bad understanding of using social media and a solid grasp of at least Instagram is imperative to running a skate shop right now.

    Also, the posts about himself come across a bit narccistic to me, I get why trying to Ďsellí the shop on his name might seem like a good idea - to be honest Iíd have definitely liked to have visited Poets just because it was Ginoís shop - but Shipman, while a big part of UK skating, I feel doesnít have the same power in name to attract people in that way. I donít think any UK skater does outside of a certain locale. Also, how many legit UK shops tout the well known guy behind them as the USP of the shop? Legacy isnít Ronny Callow The Skate Shop and Lost Art/Useless Wooden Toys isnít Dave Mackey The Skate Shop.

    Now that it's gone into administration do you reckon you could open a skateshop called Useless Wooden Toys R Us?

    Anyone got a recommendation for a site to find cheap flights on?

    Not being funny, but have you tried google flights? I travel a lot and mostly end up using that.

    https://www.google.co.uk/flights/

    Also Kayak and SkyScanner are worth a shout.
    https://www.kayak.co.uk/
    https://www.skyscanner.net/

    I find the price matrix on google flights to be most useful for when I've not got fixed dates and am just looking to find the cheapest possible options.
