It's been a little while. We wanted to give an update and a look into the future.
We've been busy getting your orders cut, sewn, burnished, painted and out the door. Everyone that got their bag order in for the Holiday deadline has their bag shipped!
We had to shut down new ordering to get things under control and we are expecting to re-open come 1/1 with our normal 4 week lead-time.
We just added a new feature on our site so you can be notified when and item come back in stock. This is separate from the newsletter and allows you to find out first when a specific item returns!
The rest of the first round of Hats will be shipping in the next couple of weeks. So keep your eyes peeled if you are one of the lucky ones.
We also have a 2nd pre-order for hats that will run through the first week of January.
To be extra clear the lead time on these is long. We expect the 2nd pre-order to ship in June 2022.
We are offering a new hat design "The Nomad" a cattleman style hat. We've also updated the hatband for this round.
We are expecting to add a new color option to the lineup, which may mean we are going to discontinue one of our standard colors.
We have a few additional designs we are expecting to launch SPRING 2022, which also means we will see a bag or two discontinued to make room. We'll let you know ahead of time when that happens in case your favorite bag is going away. If you have strong feelings about which bag should stay or go, we'd love to hear from you!
Long term we are looking to bring back a canvas or waxed canvas bag option. We have been doing some prototyping!
Thursdays on Instagram Live
If you want to catch up with us and ask questions we are LIVE on Instagram Thursdays @10:30am. If you aren't available then we post them each week.
I know that was a lot of information. But we think you deserve to know what we've been up to and the vision we see for 2022.
We truly cannot thank you enough for your support year round and especially this holiday season.
This has been an extremely exciting year. Nick is officially with us Full Time! We are so grateful to get to make bags for you and appreciate that you want to support our USA made small business and family.
We have never been more excited for what the future holds.
Enjoy your Yuletide festivities!
Happy New Year
Leanne and Nick

p.s. If you've bought from us in the past, we'd love to hear what you think. Your opinion helps us improve and lets other know what to expect. If you can write a review on a bag you've purchased it would be incredibly helpful.
