It’s hard to believe we are 2 weeks from Christmas!  Where has the time gone since our last newsletter.  Honestly, the plan was to have a newsletter out to all of you at the beginning of December, but we have been crazy busy.  For a year that has had its ups and downs, its challenges and rewards, and sad times and happy times – through it all we are so thankful to all of you that keep us going and letting us do what we love to do.

Deadline for Shipping


It’s getting to be close to our December 15 shipping cutoff for Christmas Delivery.  Orders are normally shipped within 24-48 hours after an order is placed with a few exceptions such as custom orders.  If you are one of those last-minute shoppers, we can do expedited shipping.  Just give us a call and we will let you know what the expedited shipping cost will be.

The Good and Bad


Apparently, the word got out this year that we are the best at what we do!!

As most of you know, we hand pick all or our buffalo hides to ensure our customers receive the best product available. We average 400+ buffalo hides per year and this year we ran out. WOW!!! So, you will notice that on our website the buffalo hides, and some of the buffalo fur products are currently out of stock. The good news is you are still able to pre-order the buffalo hides and buffalo fur product at the current price, just know that there will be a delay. The bad news is we will be having a price increase next year.

How Cute Is This!


We received a custom order for a buffalo fur coat for a two-year-old. It was a challenge! As we do with all of our buffalo coats, we put a lot of thought and effort into choosing the correct buffalo hide that was just right for this size of coat. We did a few adjustments here and there, but the final product came out just as planned. We think it is one of the cutest coats we have ever made, and our little model did a great job showing it off. Some “little person” is going to get a great Christmas present this year!

. . . Maybe we will add this option to the website 🙂

We lost a very dear friend last month to Covid. If you ask us, we would tell you he was our right-hand man. He was that guy that did all the little and big things that we couldn’t find the time to do.

He made us who we are with his jokes, laughter, kindness and unconditional love. Our Christmas wish for each of you is that you will have that one very special person in your life that always makes everything better.

Wishing you happiness, health and kindness,
Merlin, Barb and the team
