Brettuns Village Trunks & Leather

Old Trunks, New Leather.  All from Maine.

September 3, 2007

Hey Folks:

The fashion world is abuzz with whisperings about the new leathers that hit the loading dock, but not the forklift, at Brettuns Village.  Dusty Rose (or call it pink), white, and black chap sides arrived last week, and they're spectacular. Things were pretty busy when they arrived, so they went on racks and stayed out back on the dock for a while. That made them outstanding.  Out standing on the dock.  (rimshot) I'm here all week.

The type of leather we got in is consistent - US-branded cowhide sides, 4 oz, soft, dyed and not 'painted' so you can still tell this stuff is real and not vinyl.  Three popular colors.  OK, two popular colors, and one not-so-popular-but-them-as-needs-it-are-always-glad-to-find-it color.  Black, white, and pink.  Truly nice leather, and priced to go with the usual free shipping for our 48-state customers.  See this stuff here:

Be sure you scroll down the page, and by that I mean keep scrolling until you're pretty sure you're down in the cellar next to the acorn squash.  As you fall down that page you'll also see some full calf hides in a color we're calling Pontiac Green, and a few other items here and there.  I only added those to make your journey pass a little more quickly.  That page is getting to be about 20 feet long if you print it all out.  Don't.

The Clearance page was updated last week by one of our star employees, right before school kicked back into gear for the year.  How'd she grow up so fast?  10th grade?  Doesn't seem possible.  Driver's ed, and she's out on the open road.  Seems like just yesterday I was writing something in one of these pathetic newsletters about her learning to spell dog or cat or latigo or something.  Time to start looking at colleges, and believe me when I say we're counting on your support.  What was this paragraph about again? Oh, the Clearance page.  A lot of full hides on there.  It's right here:

Happy Labor Day, the traditional end of summer here in Maine, and it sort of feels like it. We've been up at camp lately, and sleeping with the windows open is still OK as long as you've got a few blankets on the bunk.  Still, keep that window open and you've got to listen to those loons all night. If you live in the city then you have your own
brand of loons that keep you up at night; ours seem pretty cool the first night at camp, but by the third night you're picturing them on the roasting spit, let me tell you.  Been doing some bear hunting, which for me is better labeled 'tree napping,' because that's exactly what I've been doing.  No bears, or at least not when I was awake.  Oh well.

We'll be closed on Friday as I'm heading up to Chandler Pond in northern Maine to pursue those big brook trout up there.  Drop by if you're up that way.  Put it in your GPS and it should just about explode, as Chandler is a 7 hour drive from us, though still in Maine.   It's up there.  Have a great week -
