I don't know if you've ever noticed, but if you've bought something here at 1988: LA before, you usually notice a pretty long wait between the purchase and the moment you walk outside the door. This momentary pause usually involved me putting the info into our database, taking your money/payment method, then a long and awkward 1 minute pause as we wait for your receipt to print out. It's actually very sad how slow our printer is, and that's mostly because it was a red light $22 special when we first opened the gallery in 2004. Especially at openings where a hundred people are lined up to buy something, this is by far the worst part of this location. But today my friends, that wait will no longer exist.
