November 18, 2002



For about the last three or four days we’ve been getting hit with all
kinds of slime from the sky here in Maine.  Ice, sleet, rain, snow,
and maybe a few others.  A little early in the year for this kind
of mess, if you ask me.

On a lighter note – almost Thanksgiving!  Got your bird yet?

Here’s an important note – we’re closing the shop for vacation starting
this Friday, November 22nd and won’t be open again until December 3rd. 
A nice, long break.  Just what we need, believe me.  Business
has been good this year, thanks to you customers, and we appreciate it. 
We’re also exhausted, so off we go to relax.  I know I told you the
same thing when we went to PA in October, and when we went up to New Brunswick
two weeks ago, but this time I really, really mean it.

So if you place an order next week it won’t ship out until the week
after.  If that’s a problem, wait until the following week and then
place your order – we’ll ship it within 48 hours, just like always (note
– if you do the math on this one, or look at your calendar, you’ll see
that I just told you the same thing twice, basically).

Leather – got in some new interesting scrap types, including four tons
(yep, 8,000 pounds) of genuine American Buffalo (bison) leather in brown
and black, a small load (about a thousand pounds) of elk plonge in chocolate
brown, and a new pattern of camoflage leather (Hardwoods).

Hold on to your horses – don’t try to order this stuff yet – it’s all
locked up in la Bodega for the time being.  When we get back from
vacation we’ll put it up for sale to you subscribers first, and at a special
price.  We’ll be dropping our price for the buffalo from our regular
$8 per pound to $5 per pound with free – oh, never mind – you know what
the prices include by now I hope -(OK, but just in case you’re a new subscriber,
shipping for USA locations is always free), same price for the elk leather. 
The camo will go for $3 per pound.  I’ll let you know when we’re back
and ready to pack/ship this stuff.

Trunks – We have a load of beaters in the barn – fixer uppers that need
a new home.  Once we get back from vacation we’ll be adding these
to the ‘As-Is’ page so you can adopt a project in time for the holidays. 
I’ll let you know when we have them posted.

So, since we won’t be chatting until well into the first week of December,
here’s wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.  Don’t watch too
much football, and don’t eat too darned much.  Go outside and take
a walk – just make sure none of this airborne slime is headed your way
