Hayley Ann Sea Bags

Last year, we worked with Hayley Brown and Sea Bags to design the Hayley Ann Sea Bag to honor our board president, and Hayley's father, Joe Nickerson who perished at sea in January of 2020. 

We are doing a limited run of 30 Bags this fall so if you did not purchase one last year NOW is the time. 

Orders close Oct 31st and will be shipped in time for the holidays.
