Let's go to the beach!
Welcome to Saltwater Canvas!
Custom Bag page is up and running until August 1!
With all the misery of last year, we too, have downsized. We have some basic colors available for the bags, and as we grow stronger, we are offering some Custom Bags for June and July; you may want to add some color to your life, or give a special gift. Trending now are custom shower bags for the dorm and for camp, and we are pretty busy making those up. Remember, it might take an extra week to sew up your bags, so order a little early, if possible.
Limit: 2 custom bags per customer.
Our bags are the originals. We made our first ones out of the beach cabana window mesh, and still do! The shower bag was invented in 1998, for swimming, with doubled handles that ran the length of the bag, 4 pleated roomy pockets, outdoor furniture mesh, and lots of room inside. Add a couple of years, an inside zip pocket, a key hook, wider handles, and we have many variations of beach bags. One of my favorite things to do: grab an old grocery bag, and design a new bag.
CABANA RENTALS & PURCHASES
We are almost out of our Canvas Beach Cabanas, an heirloom product that we designed in 1991. The 98% shade provides a dark, cool shade on a hot day, unlike nylon tents, which fry us. Wind filters through the mesh windows for coolness and for stability. Crazy looking outer pockets get filled with rocks or sand to add even more protection from the wind. Yes, they are portable. Medium size cabanas fit in SUVs, and the large ones fit in minivans. The large one is pictured below, top left: 7" wide. Note the yellow triangle sidescreens, and the pine green screens on the base.
If you live near Massachusetts, or drive on the Mass Turnpike near Newton on your way to Cape Cod, think about picking one up and renting it for $50 for a week. If you decide to buy one, we will take 20% off our price, and refund your $50.
Email Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to rent one for a week. We are 5 minutes from the turnpike.
We have 2 large cabanas and 8 medium cabanas in stock. Check them out! Cabanas last for 25 years with care.
