Motel Beds Nail 4/5 Star Review from MOJO!  

Posted at 11:46 am

mojo beds

MOJO — the magazine we’ve all been reading since children here at Camp Misra — gave the sweet boys of Motel Beds 4/5 stars! We couldn’t be happier. The review comes from MOJO’s wonderful editor Jenny Bulley, nonetheless.

Please forgive the fuzzy scan, but we wanted to post it now. We’ll get a better scan soon. MOJO 250, September 2014. Yes!
