Bowery Boogie Spotted in Sweden

Boogie co-founder Dave Gustav explains how one of our stickers wound up on a street pole in Sweden, about 3,723 miles (or 5,992 kilometers) from the Lower East Side.
We decided to make some new Bowery Boogie stickers back in December. It seemed like a fun idea to give them away and see where they ended up. I felt weird just mailing people stickers, so I started writing small notes and including them with the stickers. One day as I was stuffing envelopes, I decided to write “Hey. You Rule.” and post a picture of it on Facebook. Out of curiosity I captioned it with “First person to fill out the sticker form after reading this post gets this note. Because you rule.”
Minutes later, we had a winner, and my mind was blown. The winner lived in Sweden. It had to be a joke, right? There was no way that a website about the Lower East Side of New York had readers in Sweden. I figured what the hell, let’s see what happens if I mail it.
Yesterday we got an email with the above picture and this note:
Here’s a groovy sticker on a road sign outside a great restaurant in Östersund, Sweden. The guests go out and smoke there, so there are many who will see it!
Love your site, keep up the good work!
