Renovating Upward in East Kensington


    Fireball Printing

    Fireball Printing, a small business specializing in custom print jobs of all kinds, turned to Solo’s Jeff Carpineta (who also helped them find their first home) when they felt ready for their own building. We took them to look at a bunch of different places, including some real fixer-uppers. Eventually, owners Paul and Catherine toured their perfect fit – an old table pad company on Coral St. They were excited at the prospect of keeping it local, only a few minutes from their home.

Kensington Community Food Co-Op


    Kensington Community Food Co-Op

    The idea for the Kensington Community Food Co-Op came from East Kensington resident Lena Helen and Solo agent Jeff Carpineta, both residents of the area who were deeply inspired by their time shopping at co-ops both in Philadelphia and Portland, Oregon. A field trip to Weaver’s Way inspired a dozen neighbors to form a steering group, research how to start a food co-op in Kensington and begin the grassroots work.
