July 17, 2020

A little goes a long way in many countries around the world.

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?

Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders). 

More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).

Top o’ the morning to ya!

Today, two awesome travelers bring us a story of adventure, tradition, and a whole lot of Irish luck!

Take it away April!

“We landed in Ireland the morning of Saint Patrick's Day, and of course after checking in at our hotel, we headed straight for the streets of Dublin to get a spot on the parade route. It was cold, and windy, and we stood in the chilly air for a good hour before the parade made its way to where we were standing, but it was totally worth it to see something that was completely unexpected- no green, orange, white colored floats, or clovers and anything that we portray in the U.S. on Saint Patrick's Day. Instead, it was a parade with a story telling theme of different floats, dancers, bands, etc. There was also no 'bead tossing' as many expect in parades. It was rewarding to experience a real Irish tradition in Ireland, and to see the way locals celebrate this holiday!

“In the region of Hoi An, the local minority group is named "Cham". Currently, the Cham population is only 130,000. A spectacular Cham temple complex named My Son still exists today, very near Hoi An City. We were very lucky to see an amazing dance performance by Cham people at the My Son temples the day we visited.
