Flophouse Fundraiser

    14 months ago, Flophouse Skateboards was only a dream that Johnny and I shared. We began taking small steps, learning how to build and operate a business from the ground up. Since then, we have opened a full retail store with a workshop in the back where we produce hand painted skate decks one at a time. We also built a mini ramp in the shop, opened our walls to local artists, and now Flophouse has become a haven for the skateboarding community. What has manifested has exceeded what we even though possible at the beginning.  
     That being said, none of this has been easy. Our recources have been poured into keeping our doors open through the winter, and through daily effort we have been able to just keep our heads above water. This tax season has dealt us a blow that we are unable to handle.
      We are right on the verge of being forced to close our doors, which we do not want to do. 
     We are asking that you will consider helping us, and by doing so you are helping to keep Flophouse a part of your community. All money raised will go directly towards evening our score with the state. 


Ben and Johnny
