Tom Brady Wristlets Are for Sale and are a Discontinued Item.  Why Would Sea Bags Do That?

Late last week Sea Bags opened up a pop-up store at 123 Commercial Street on the Portland waterfront.  It’s a response to the COVID-19 said Erica William, a new employee for Sea Bags, at its pop-up. It’s purpose is to give shoppers a safer shopping opportunity than they would have at the  company’s much smaller venue at 25 Custom House Wharf, behind Harbor Fish Market – just around the corner.

The twenty-one year old company is now located in 35 states across the country.

The size of this pop-up permits twelve people to shop safely at a time under the Governor’s guidelines.  The use of a face covering is required for entry to this pop-up.

Because of the size of the space, shoppers get a much better look at all the products produced from the 100% recycled sails for which Sea Bags is nationally recognized.  There are bags of different sizes, clutch bags and interior decoration items as well.  There are some items like bottle openers that are on sale because they have been disconnected.

” I still love Tom Brady.  He gave  the best years of his life to the Patriots and took them to six national championships,” said Debbie Barnes, of Cape Elizabeth.  She bought one of the Brady wristlets for a family member who is also a Pats fan.  Her face lit up when she said:  “We’ll see him in Florida.”  She and her husband will be heading there, where Brady now plays, after Thanksgiving for most of the winter.

Where’s Our New Tom Brady? Huh?

This pop-up will remain open until December 21, 2020, seven days a week, for your holiday shopping convenience.
