Back in 2007, after Whitey’s passing, J.T. purchased Carlson Leather from Whitey Carlson’s sister. Carlson Leather had been a long-standing and well-loved institution in the Ely area and around the globe, and we are always thrilled to take our bags back for the Blueberry Festival. There we receive many warm stories of Whitey from his friends and customers
This year, we will be able to take yet another iconic piece of Minnesota history with us to the Blueberry Festival. The Original Dome Bag!
After the dome went down a smart group of entrepreneurs bought all the fabric from the dome. Recently we were contacted by this group and to produce Domer Bags. (thanks to Melody for her courageous and open ability to talk to perfect strangers) We are currently in production of this line. These bags will be found in select stores in the Twin Cities area. This new product is the same high quality of our own Lost Creek patterns and will be of the same high quality you have come to expect from us, with the addition of the nearly indestructible Teflon coated fiberglass of the dome roof itself.
Please stay posted for a listing of the stores you will be able to buy them from, (including the Blueberry Festival) ,and when they will be available!
History is important and we are happy to help continue our great Minnesota traditions! We believe that a piece of history is a piece of our heart!
