We love receiving postcards from you! Did you know that at certain times of the year, we include a prepaid postcard in every order for you to send back to us or whoever you choose? All of our postcards contain adventure-inspired images that were painted by a local artist, it happens to be the same one who illustrates our catalog!
They decorate our shop and serve as a great reminder of why we do what we do, craft packs and goods that are functional and reliable and that are your companions on adventures, big and small. We take pride in the fact that our gear plays a role in the stories that you share in a postcard, many of which get told and will be retold for years to come. These postcards and stories motivate us to continue to strive to build the best packs we can that have the same quality and attention to detail that you have come to expect and know.
It means a lot to us when you take the time to write and mail a postcard. Whether you are sharing your excitement about a recently acquired pack or one that has been a loyal companion for a decade we love to hear it all. Whether it's a briefcase for work or an Isle Royale that has trekked across the globe, getting an insight into what you do and who you are, builds a deeper connection that we value greatly.
Since so many of you share about what is going on in your neck of the woods, we wanted to take a moment to share what we have going on here. Here in Duluth, MN, we have got a pretty cool event coming up that is hosted by our neighbors, Bent Paddle Brewing Co called Festiversary. This year is the 10th anniversary of the block party put on by Bent Paddle and it is sure to be a good one with two stages of live music, local food trucks and vendors as well as games and entertainment and you guessed it, beer! We have been a part of Festiversary since the beginning, and have loved watching it, and Bent Paddle, grow as we have here too!
Gonna be in town and looking to attend? Head to their website https://bentpaddlebrewing.com or get tickets the day of at the gate! In need of some beverage gear to keep your beer cold and hands warm? Swing by the shop on your way to the party to stock up or stop in when you need a break from all the groovy music, we’ll be open!
