“The Largest Motorcycle Run in the Pacific Northwest,” the Oyster Run, will be held Sunday, September 22. And Eagle Leather will again have its booth in Anacortes on Ninth and Commercial. It’s a busy day for the Eagle Leather staff, who get up at dawn to get the booth set up, spend all day interacting with customers, and then take the booth down before the long drive home. Damien says, “So much work goes into preparation and setup to do that one day, we have usually been preparing for more than a week. Everyone is tired until the crowd starts showing up, then it’s nonstop all-day, and you are living off your adrenaline. You don’t get much chance to enjoy it while it’s happening, but for days after you get to hear everyone's favorite experiences.”
One of the items the Eagle Leather team will be putting on display is the lined Veteran vest in black. It packs a lot of style with an asymmetric closure, buckles at the waist, and a detailed pocket flap—and it’s on sale!
Adrey says the day at the Oyster Run is “lots of fun, always busy, always something to do. Worth getting up super-early to drive up with the sun.” She’ll show you a wide variety of leather goods, including the Ladies’ Scarlett Star jacket. The full-sleeve, high-performance insulated thermal liner is perfect for fall rides. The liner and the jacket have matching stretch panels for comfort. The zipper closure is offset and antique-silver rivet details on the back, sides, and cuffs add pizzazz.
Last year, Kayla said, “The Oyster run was a very busy day but was very fun and a nice change of pace from normal store life.” She wants you to know about the Men’s General Jacket, shown here in oxblood, which is on sale. The center-zip jacket is made of distressed cowhide leather; it’s fully lined. It has two zippered pockets on the chest, two more in the front, and a snap-closure pocket inside. Military patched stitching on the sleeves and shoulders make this jacket special.
Liz is looking forward to the Oyster Run. She says, “I’ve always enjoyed myself up there but it’s a lot of work, but it’s fun.” She likes the Ladies’ Sweet Sienna Vest. This fitted vest has a full satin liner. It has two exterior pockets. Decorative seams enhance the structured style of the classic motorcycle vest. And it’s on sale too!
Speaking of last year, Emma said, “The Oyster Run was one of my favorite days working for Eagle Leather. It was exciting to see my regular customers in a different environment and eye-opening to see how many people from all over know about our store.” She things lots of men will like the Premium Maverick Jacket. It’s made of soft, naked-touch cowhide and has a perforated action back and a heavy mesh liner. Adding to riding comfort are the stretch panels in the liner arms, the fully opening zippered cuffs, and the side zippers at the bottom. It has four outside pockets and two inside pockets. The mandarin collar, the stripe detailing on the chest and the upper sleeves, and the hidden zippers give this jacket style.
When you see the Poet Laureate of Eagle Leather, Kayla, at the Oyster Run, tell her how much you enjoyed her haiku:
Oyster Run, so fun
My candy bar in the sun
Can’t wait for next year
And we can hardly wait to see you there!
