Jeepers, inundated! I mean, SALE! SALE!

I just got in 50 pairs of boots in all sizes and a jeebusload of leather. If you come and buy something before I’ve done all the work of writing that particular sucker up and doing a wee handwritten tag for it, I’ll give you 10% off, just for saving …

I’m Westward Bound Bound

That post title was entirely too much fun to type. I’m packing up bins and bins of some rather nice leathers and boots to take to the Westward Bound conference, where I’ll be vending for the weekend. Come on by and see what I’ve got! (How am I going to …

My sidewalk! Yay heavy machinery!

The city waterworks crew is carving a hole in the sidewalk 3 feet from ReRide’s front door (no, don’t worry, you can still get in to buy things!) and I get a ringside seat on the concrete-carving wheel thing and the backhoe-looking thing.  I’ve turned the music up to cover …

Winter Holiday Hours. I mean Days.

Hello, O Christmas Shoppers and other leather-loving folks. Here’s what’s what over the holiday: Until closing on Thursday, December 22, everything is business as usual. Starting Friday Dec 23rd, East Side Re-Rides will be closed so Elaine can dive into family, friends, feasting, festing, and various fun practices until everything …

Me and The Loved One checked out the Viberg factory in Victoria, BC, and I just picked up a pair of new Viberg boots –much like those pictured here– for my own personal feet.

Jeepers, these are amazing boots. They make even old-style Daytons feel like lightweights. I can’t wait to see what they look like with a few years wear into them.

Yes, that particular beautiful helmet you’d been looking at sold three weeks ago. Yes, I know you gambled that it wouldn’t sell yet, and the price would therefore be lower today, but in the meantime someone else came in and gave me money. Ruthlessly, I let them have the helmet. No, waving and huffing at the place on the shelf where it used to be won’t help. Don’t go away mad, now….

Adding machine just jumped on my head from a top shelf.  Ow. Wee paper roll unscrolled all over me and the floor. I think it’s just overeager about month-end.

Thursday Sept 29th – odd hours

Hi, folks. I’m running out for two hours on Thursday afternoon, so a specialist can look at my fubar’d elbow joint. Hours will be — Open 11am – 1pm closed 1pm -  3pm open 3pm – 6pm Thanks for your patience!     *** Want a particular item? Check the …

Some nice folks came in and bought some gear today. They said they’d found a single business card lying in a lonely parking lot in Chilliwack a while back, and that’s how they’d found out about the store. I’d never thought about that method of advertising, honestly.  Now I wonder.

Hullo, claustrophobic lady who was looking for a hybrid (full face where all the chin stuff and visor can be shoved up temporarily so you can kiss your honey or talk to a cop or eat ice cream), I now have one in silver, size medium.

Thanks to good friend and part-time store-minder River Tucker for giving me a hand yesterday to re-organize the store to fit in the new rack for the new stuff coming in!  Drop in and tell me what you think.

Dropped the 3-hole punch & bottom came off. Confetti everywhere. Fuck it. I’ll tell everyone who comes in that there’s been a wedding. *** Want a particular item? Check the post’s date & item #, and call us 604.327.7433 ***
