I'm a mini safe for your stash or just an over sized bank for the family. My head spins 360 and my swinging mustachio will hook your guest with questions about my origins. Your stash is safe and sound with me......I promise.....
These banks are all recycled and will get your friends talking about your spending habits.
The bank is primarily constructed from sheet metal tailings and various odds and ends harvest from our industrial evolution. A section of cold rolled perforated mesh allows you to see your money come and go. This banks durable construction ensures generations of use and abuse.
Cash out and finance that burning desire, or maybe just a little gas money till payday.
My original works are hand painted, welded and riveted with love. Each piece is signed and dated.
Whats the story?
I had long summers full of hot days and dusty bike rides on canal roads. We always found trouble mid day when everyone was inside and we were out playing in the irrigation ditches. Fire works from Rocky Point, peashooters and lighters filled our pockets with fun.
