The weather is wild and varied this summer. My friend Margie, working in Oklahoma for 6 months, has been basking in 118 degrees! She says you don’t go out after 10 am or before 8 pm. Hot, hot in much of the U.S. Here in the Pacific Northwest the weather is perfect. After nearly no summer last year, and lots of rain, we are loving it!

They’ve had plenty of rain in the UK though. One of our customers, Anna, wrote in June, with an apology for not writing sooner about the vintage Hawaiian shirt she had purchased for her husband. With good reason! It rained so much in their town of Bogner Regis in West Sussex, UK that she sent me this  link.

They had 2 months worth of rain in 24 hours!

She wrote: “The shirt arrived. The packaging was sopping and disintegrated but you cleverly wrapped the shirt in plastic so it was fine”. I usually wrap orders in plastic in case of a little damp, but Oh my! http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=floods+bognor&hl=en&client=&rls=en&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=zkTfT8L1G8Si8QO-yrS4Cw&ved=0CEUQ_AUoAQ&biw=1249&bih=1241#q=floods+bognor&hl=en&client=safari&sa=X&rls=en&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=cde1baa989d171d0&biw=1366&bih=643
