It’s officially mid-summer in Minnesota! Sweltering heat and humidity! We’ll take it, as it validates our taking Friday off, and heading to the cabin early. We snuck up to the cottage a week ago to host a family reunion, and spend some quiet down time. It was marvelous! My sis Kate is here from London for the month of July, so its always a fun to get up north and share time. From morning coffee pontoon rides, to evening sunset cruises and lots of float time in-between. The family reunion was terrific too. It’s called the Strand Family Reunion as my great grandfather was a Strand. By now most of us attending were no more related that you and I, but we get together and celebrate our Swedish Heritage. It's so much fun to catch up!
After five days up North, I had a lot of catching up to do at Brightwater, as I’ve been getting ready for our Annual Excelsior Crazy Days Tent Sale! Starting Thursday, it runs through Sunday. The Big Top tent behind the shop will be holding sale items that are up to 80% off! This is your opportunity to save big on all the great merchandise you’ve come to expect from Brightwater‚ from summer shorts and tops to parkas and sweaters! You'll find the names that you know and love from Brightwater: Parajumpers, Ecru, Billy Reid, White and Warren, Hatley, Anatomie, Gitman Vintage, Lilla P, Amundsen, and so many others! Best selection is always Thursday at 10:00 a.m., yet I continue to add more product every day. There’s an additional 20% off all remaining items on Sunday, so you may want to head home from the cabin early! In addition, summer clothing in the shop will be marked down 30%. I could go on and on, but I’ve got lots of marking down of prices to do! This is our biggest sale of the year — don't miss it!
Please swing by the Tent Sale this weekend. I love seeing each and everyone of you! Keep yourselves hydrated, be kind, and a be little more understanding with all the heat!
As always, lots of love,
