We’ve all heard the phrase “They don’t make it like they used to”, but for Satchel B. Moore the phrase means a way of life. Columbus & Co. sat down with Satchel after he got off work at Black Blue to chop deeper into his story and passion for quality made products. Satchel began getting into the vintage American made scene early on in high school, but really developed a passion for scouring the flea markets, thrift stores and antique shops during his college years in New York with a female roommate. When Satchel returned home from college he helped shop for a few friends that were looking to open up a vintage store, and loved being able to purchase great vintage items on someone else’s dime.
As we looked around Satchel’s digs we saw wall-to-wall, one-of-a-kind vintage items. Satchel said pretty much everything in his place was a vintage find besides his laptop and TV. Besides home furnishings he had stacks of brand named, American made clothes consisting of Woolrich, Pendleton, Abercrombie, Levi’s, Carhartt, Eddie Bauer, Filson and the list goes on. It was truly remarkable to see so much rich history and culture wrapped up in one man’s place. To think of the time spent procuring these items makes my head spin – what a wonderful effort to establish an identity so few come to do.
Perhaps the one lingering question I have after the experience is: What is to be done with this massive collection of novelties? I don’t even know if Satchel has an answer to that question at this point, but I hope he continues to excel at his hobby so the collection continues to grow and these quality items of history have place to rest for the time being.
Satchel currently doesn’t have a store front selling these items, but we were able to barter a few classic finds out of his possession. For more information on the story or Satchel, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
