CopperHD ,

Love the honest, genuine approach to business Mackenzi has!!!

Born in Queens, I love her dedication to the neighborhood...and it shows in your beautiful, whimsical shops! Great take aways for businesses during this unusual situation. And very effective interview. Looking forward to more podcasts! And getting into one of the Lockwood shops as soon as they open!
