Magpie Designs

It’s said that a canvas tote bag is the most versatile bag you will ever own: they can be used as shopping bags, laptop bags, gym bags, you can pack snacks in them for a trip to the lake, and so much more.  This cute canvas tote bag, from the Apron Tote Bag design series by Trixie & Milo comes in the Golden Eagle Farm Supplies style.  Canvas bags produce less carbon, waste, and byproducts than cotton or paper bags.  Plus they’re recyclable!  Because we don’t let things just go to waste around here.  Bonus: we think you’ll find they’re perfect for carrying around your books, such as The Disappeared.

TLC Liquor
Wyoming Whiskey Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey

Imported all the way from Kirby, Wyoming: home of the first legal distillery to open in the state when Wyoming Whiskey first opened in 2009, Small Batch Bourbon is a wheated variety described as having prominent notes of brown sugar, caramel, slightly spicy oak, and vanilla.  To the nose, the heat of the 88 proof bourbon can be surprising, but on the palate the heat isn’t nearly as prominent.  The palate produces a significant sweetness pertaining to butterscotch, and some baking spices which further back up hints of grassy or floral flavors.  Nothing says Western Class more than sipping on Wyoming bourbon after dinner by an outdoor fire.  Get yours at TLC Liquor.

4T Pawn
1980 Colt Python

A .357 caliber, 6 shot with a 2.5” nickel finish barrel and Pachmayr grips, this exceptional handgun is sought after by shooters and collectors alike.  Valued for features such as the barrel’s slight taper toward the muzzle, which largely lends to accuracy, and the fact that it was built on a .41 magnum frame, the strength of which reduces recoil and increased overall stability of the gun.  Not to mention the level of expensive hand-finishing involved in its manufacturing, which ultimately led to the revolver’s discontinuation in 1999.  Experience the craftsmanship of a 20th century classic handgun.
