  • Toilet Paper
  • Roach Killer
  • Emergency Tighty Whiteys
  • Bar of Soap
  • Travel Toothbrush
  • #2 Pencil
  • MOB Griptap

The package comes complete with snacks and assembled in a box packed with love from Mom.
Available for $54.99 including 8.06″ board, this limited release of 75 care packages is available only at Orchard and in their online store.

In celebration of the project, Orchard and Vans hosted an exhibition of Dennis Mcnett’s artwork for Antihero in the Extension Gallery at the shop. Visit www.OrchardShop.com to see photos of the opening which included visits by special guests John Cardiel and Julien Stranger.
