There’s a new second hand co-op shop on Brenton St. thanks to Emily Ross & Linsday Stewart. Big Pony opened back in November & have some awesome promo videos by Our Dynasty Our Destiny. The shop is spacious with plenty of room to browse their well chosen garments, shoes, jewelry & their stationery lines: Varity Concert and Carnival. Be sure to stop by to say hello and check out their wares!
Where did the name Big Pony come from?
Big Pony is in fact the second name given to our boutique. The original name we decided upon was Eastern Promises. It goes without being said that neither of us had seen the motion picture of the same name, but had heard of it and knew it existed. We excitedly leaked it to a couple of folks to get feedback, to which people usually responded with a grimace or “keep lookin’” Turns out the movie is about brothels, etc, etc….thank gawd [sic] someone talked us out of it. Everyone did. Yeah. Actually everyone.
What or who has influenced what you wear and what you carry in your store?
It would be the city that influences us. Our friends, people on the street, people out at night….Also I really like magazines. I was gonna say the internet…but seriously magazines, internet, city, rayon. If it’s rayon I’ll wear it so that definitely influences me.
What are you playing in the shop?
That’s obvious. Rap, R&B, trap remixes, slow jams, sexy jams, strawberry jams.
