I have known the Rogers family (owners of Manitou Outfitters) as far back as I can remember.
My brother, JP, worked at Manitou in his college years, and it was the go to spot for all our Patagonia* gear, as well as their own brand, JJ Skivee, plus many more essentials throughout our lives.
"Saint Kay" and Jolly Rogers have been a main stay on Main Street for 35 years, with Manitou Outfitters as a must stop in Leland. When looking through old pics to connect our stories, many of my memories aren't preserved in photograph form ... I have lasting tales of laughter with their two "red heads", Kelly and Katie, from closing down the Blue Bird, to bachelorette parties, and now motherhood and careers.
Best of luck to Kay and Jim! and thank you for inviting me to continue your legacy in this space, a special spot for the continuation of our story. Here's to 35 years of running a family business on Main Street!
