Camo Slippers
Well as I lay around after my back surgery, I thank God for my Old Friend Camo Slippers.  I have been wearing the heck out of these things because I don't have to bend over to put them on.  My day consists of getting out a bed and making it to the couch.  Somewhere in between my Camo Slippers end up on my feet.  The biggest bummer is that I won't be hunting at all this season.  In fact my ice-fishing season is in question.  Talk about a kick in the pants.  When they first told me I couldn't hunt after my surgery I got real low.  Probably the lowest I have ever been.  I haven't yet wrapped my head around not hunting this year after I spent so much time practicing this summer and fall.

Oooof Daaaa

Gosh it is fall already.  I'm going crazy laying around in a Hospital Bed lately wondering how in the heck my back ever got as bad as it has.  It is crazy the amount of drugs, shots, and adjustments have been done to relieve the pain in my back and all I can think of is "How the heck am I going to get out hunting?"
Sheepskin Boots
Don't get me wrong. I have been thinking about the store a little bit. Kate has a sweet sale going on right now at the store having to do with a Shipping deal on Sheepskin Moccasins, Boots, and Slippers.  If you are thinking about buying any sheepskin this fall, now would be the time to act on that special.  The fall leaves are beautifully colored golden, red, yellow, and brown and I can tell when someone stops in the store that there is something special about buying Minnetonka Moccasins in the Northwoods during the fall. 
I could say my focus has been on my classes.  I've been working really hard to help my classes learn more than they ever have before and then this stupid back acts up and I miss a week of school.  By the time I get back into my classroom, my students are going to be ready to kill me.  I don't think they really care if I am broken or not, they are just a little worried that I'm getting more time away from the classroom then they are and they don't see that as fair.
Missed Opportunities....
My biggest concern is hunting.  I watch out my hospital window and imagine giant 10 pointers walking through the parking lot.  I imagine all the big dear in the county are right now taking a siesta next to my stands and blinds and there is nothing I can do about it.  I 'm concerned that I will be able to get out at all this year.  On top of that my wife, 2 daughters, and 2 sons all want me to hunt with them and only them.  Well you know how well that will work out.  Am I whining?? heck yaaaa!  I have been shooting my bow religiously for the past 3 months and now the season is here and I'm too banged up to get up in my tree stands.  Such is life.  You take the good with the bad.  Sometimes the bad can be a little overwhelming.

Fall is right around the corner

Well her is comes!  Fall it seems crazy to think of fall shopping after going through that heat wave but it is right around the corner.  Don't forget to stock up your kiddies on Minnetonka Moccasins and Peace Moccasins for the school year.   As a school teacher, I watch more and more kids choose moccasins as their daily footwear.  I recommend a durable fringe boot for the girls and a boat mocc or slippers for the boys.

That was then, this is now.

We recently had an order for some Indian Headdresses for a birthday party out in New York City.  The buyer wanted these headdresses by 8:00 a.m. the next morning which got me thinking about how many Indian Headdresses have come and gone through our doors. 
The picture on the left was taken of our son Cody when he was in 3rd grade.  Now he is 6'4", a senior in High School, heading off to University of Wisconsin Madison on a Naval ROTC.  What a difference a few years make. 

I remember 10 years ago how my wife thought it was crazy to put a $10 item on the internet.  After all who would want to pay more for the shipping then the actual item.  All I can say is that you would be surprised.  Our headresses made by the Cherokee Indians are not easy to find out there in the real world so people turn to Arrow Gift Shop to find those costume items they are looking for.  We have been selling headdresses, coonskin caps, toy bows and arrows, and much more for a long time and everytime we sell one it makes me smile!

Whew! Its been busy.

Whoa slow down.  It has been crazy busy lately.  As a school teacher, I've been trying to keep up with Governor Walker's "Shoot from the hip" Bills, and I'm nervous.  As a track coach I've been trying to get our athletes ready for the season.  As a business man, I've been slacking off!  We have a lot of product coming in to our store right now.  You are already aware of the New Minnetonka Sandals that came in a month ago.  We also got our "Ton of Guns" in from Parris Manufacturing.  I say "Ton of Guns" because we usually get in about 2000 lbs of wooden toy guns in this time of the year.  Well, they are here and they are still popular.  If you are looking for a particular style of wooden gun, now is the time to get one while our supplies last.  We also got in a a new line of Snoozie Slippers.  We don't have them on the web yet, but we are working on it.  We have had a lot of our other products come in and the store is looking full again.  Our Toy room is fully stocked.
