SOAP BOX

Welcome to the 5&A Dime soap box. 

I Suck at Introductions, Hi I'm Jon

Jonathan Ikemura

Hello everyone,

My name is Jon, and if you've visited the shop on weekends you've probably seen Jay making fun of me. As a frequent checker of the 5&A Dime blog I finally asked Jay if I could contribute.

I found out about the shop around 2008/09 when I worked with a photography company called The Social Trust. We were in town shooting a lookbook for The Lovewright Co. and we caught up with Jay, and some regulars hanging outside on 8th & G. I just remember I really enjoyed visiting the spot every time I was in San Diego since then. It wasn't just the products, it was the whole feeling of supporting a mom and pop shop, and the sense of supporting a community. During one trip to the shop, Jay told me about the first Motor Union. I entered my MINI and began to talk to Jay about designs. So through making a few designs for the store I became friends with the whole 5&A Dime crew. Some how that snowballed into either the crew coming up for Disneyland trips around my area, or me visiting SD and staying for the weekend. 

When not checking for 5&A Dime's blog updates, I run The Condolence Co.

If you've met me, then you've probably met my R2-D2 to my C3P-0. Meet Ruxton!

I'm not a man of many words. So expect a lot more photos than commentary in my blogging.
