So if you spend $100 at any of the below local and national partners of ours, we’ll give you a $25 gift card to use when its time to visit Boynton Beach Mall once again.
A little history…Civil War Major Nathaniel Smith Boynton purchased 500 acres including one mile of Atlantic Ocean beachfront in 1894 for $12.50. He then built a swanky hotel where pale skinned Northerners with funky goatees spend winter. Wait a minute…$25 per acre. Okay boys and girls…roll up your sleeves…now it’s time for a little arithmetic. First off, let’s figure what $12,500 back then is worth today…take my word for it…$372,658 (email me and I’ll provide the Department of Labor Consumer Price Index backup). Next, let’s take a look at some waterfront land for sale. This 2.14 acre lot is going for a cool $19.95M…let’s be super-duper conservative and assume Mr. Boynton’s entire 500 acres is valued at only 10% of this admittedly premium parcel of land. So, today his 500 acres is today is worth $469M. No wonder the darn town is named after him.
Fast forward to 2020, Boynton Beach is a diverse community with a dynamic mix of residential, commercial, entertainment, dining and of course surf and sand. There’s a so a few hipsters who channel the late Major Boynton with equally wispy goatees.
I love denim and while these are admittedly slightly too K Pop for a more…ahem…mature person such as myself, I still might give them a try. If these don’t work, check out Creamstreetwear’s awesome selection…they might even carry a pair of dad jeans or two. Just promise me…no elastic waistband.

If Stacy Adams was good enough for Morris Day (remember his seminal performance in the movie Purple Rain), Coolio and Snoop Dogg - all of whom mention this iconic brand in their songs, then it’s good enough for me. I’m right at this very moment ordering this tasty tangerine three piece suit…42 regular.
While we’re on the subject of tie dye…every respectable hippy should own a dreamcatcher. Native American tribes such as the Ojibway (otherwise known as Chippewa) first hung dreamcatchers above their children’s beds to catch evil spirits. This version from Nativa, adorned with feathers (another hippy staple) is guaranteed to not only catch dreams…it’s also a pretty cool piece of art.
In 1993, a high school dude opened a comic book store focusing on all things Marvel… he also invested in stock and sold it at high point before they went bankrupt. A few years later, Tate Ottati opened Tate’s Comics and the rest is history. Now I have never met Tate, but if this isn’t the quintessential entrepreneur’s story, then I’m not Bruce Banner. By the way, I am a huge Marvel fan and love the Hulk, Wolverine, Nebula, Magneto and Susan Storm.
