As the Capital district of NY and the other areas of the State and the East Coast begin to clean up and get on with life, I discovered that the name Irene actually means "peace" in Greek! What a name for a Hurricane --- such sarcasm! My heart goes out to all who have suffered from this terrible storm.
I am thankful that our boutique did not have to evacuate as our store is with in a hundred feet or so of the Hudson River in Rensselaer, NY. Please see the pictures that I took of the Hudson River while it was cresting.
TuffBaggs are great bags to have during wet weather as our main fabric, 420 urethane coated nylon pack cloth, is an incredibly durable, durable water repellant, and weather proof material. Our pack cloth bags are machine washable ---certainly spot wipe them first as the dirt just comes off with a damp sponge or cloth. Our pack cloth bags are lightweight and are incredibly long lasting, thanks to our triple stitching at minimum on our seams and stress points.
I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend! The boutique is closed Friday, 9/2/11. We will resume our regular hours on Tuesday, 9/ 6/11.
Tuesday to Friday, noon to 6 pm; closed Saturday to Monday (appointments accepted for Monday).
