Brettuns Village Trunks & Leather
Old Trunks, New Leather.  All from Maine.

Frost on the spinach leaves can cause them to be a little less crunchy than normal, and that's what we've got upcountry today.  Soggy spinach.  Wide spread frost this morning in Maine has left the yard and garden a bit on the slippery side, and it must be a little chilly too because the wild turkeys seem to be high stepping a bit to keep their toes off the frost.  That's just a bit of a mental image for you to help start your day.  Pretty up here right now - all the new leaves have a vivid green glow to them, and this crisp air really helps the whole scene.  I'm sure it's the same where you are.

If you've been on this newsletter list for a while you know how bad things can get.  We got bad news a few weeks ago when the company that handled sending out these e-mails let us know that they wouldn't be providing that service any longer, so we had to find a new company to handle this mess.  I think we've found the right folks for the job, and this is really just a test to make sure it works.  You can still unsubscribe in a jiffy when the malarkey gets to you.  If you have any comments on this new system please let me know.

One thing I've got here in great numbers are sheep hides, chrome tanned and very, very soft.  Dark brown, about 2 feet wide and 2-3 feet long.  Since this is a test message and you've read this far, if you'd like some dark brown sheep hides I'll send you 6 of them for $80 flat (that's $20 off). If you'd like those leopard spot sheep hides
we'll do 6 of those for $50 (about half off).  Free shipping to any USA address.  Just send it by PayPal to Leather@brettunsvillage.com or give us a call.  E-mail works too if you just want to reserve some, then follow up with payment thru the mail or whatever. If you'd like to see these hides they're shown on our Lightweight Leathers page:

Thanks very much, and be sure to have a great week this week.  Next week too.
