Hello World! How terrible we have been keeping in touch with you, our apologies! How have you been?
Last summer you may have noticed
1. Fishtown was a busy busy busy place with an insane amount of visitors scooping up all our inventory at every moment
2. I was preggo!
After a record-breaking spectacular fun summer running the shop (whilst being architects) and our inventory was totally exhausted, just when we yelled uncle, November was here, and a little boy named Hank entered our world rocketing our hearts into pure bliss.
Long story short (oh i forgot to mention we bought a home in between all that madness, that of course needs work) It quickly (and sadly) became obvious that we did not have time to run the shop with the attention it deserves and decided not to renew our lease in the amazing old fishtown shanty. (tear)
Fret not! We are not throwing the towel quite yet, au contraire! Peter & I have too much fun coming up with designs and products as a creative outlet, we found it impossible to completely say goodbye. So consider this a mere PAUSE. And in the meantime, this website will be the touchstone of our goings on.
But who will fill the shanty now you may be wondering? Another mother to be of course, the lovely Maggie Revel-Mielczarek and her ‘Leland Gal’ goods. http://lelandgal.com Be sure to swing by this summer and welcome her to the hood!
Also – We do plan on restocking our GREAT LAKES GEAR very soon, keep checking the site or send an email and i’ll inform you when we restock more sizes.
If you live in Traverse City, we have a lovely studio space near the old hospital, if you want ‘free shipping’ just schedule a time for pickup, I am happy to oblige! The website is an accurate reflection of our current inventory.
Have a great winter everyone!
charlotte, peter & baby hank
