Subject: BS: Help - anyone live in Maine?
From: Cats
Date: 27 Dec 07 - 02:31 PM

This is absolutley nothing to do with music. I have fallen in love witha a victorian cape that is made by Casco Bay Wool in Maine. It is going to be really expensive and will have to be shipped over to the UK and will be my Christmas present. Does anyone out there live in Maine and know the company? Are they as good as they look and as good as their website says? Also can anyone help on sizes? I am only 5 foot tall but a size 2x. According to their sizes I need an extra long but that is for people whoi are over 5 foot 6 and up to 6 foot tall. Is the regular likely to fit? Can anyone help?

Cats-

Wool shops don't get any better than this one. I'm familiar with their retail outlet, 10 Moulton Street, in the old port of Portland. And I bought one of their capes for JudyB who stands slightly under 5 feet tall. I'll ask her to post more pertinent information here, or it may be more appropriate to compare notes via PM.

One of our Mudcat friends, Jacqui, travels back and forth to the UK on a farely regular basis. She might be willing to assist with delivery.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble, aka "Smuggler John"

Ok, Cats...I have looked at the website and I can tell you that this shop is located in a very well-to-do section of Portland and it does look like quality merchandise. I also noticed that they give a flat rate for international shipping of $40, which, considering most of the capes are $300+ really isn't that bad...but has been mentioned, Jacqui travels from Maine to the UK twice a year...
I would say the size really depends on how long you want this cape to be on you. If it's just a straight cape I would say judging from your height that you should be OK with a "long" as the extra length will be taken up by the 2x requirements...but it may be worth going someplace over there and trying one or two on before ordering...

The company does have a good reputation. Do you want me to telephone them for you Cat? I don't have the gas/petrol to drive over just now, but I could call them on Saturday if you like.

Otherwise, perhaps some of our amazing Maine Shopping Experts here on Mudcat would enjoy a trip over to check on things for you.

We can also check out the outlet store to see if your cape is available on the bargain rack.
I have a line on a delivery too.

Sinsull-

Between the three of you, you should be able to determine what is the appropriate "2X" by 5-foot size. It will also be a wonderful vicarious experience because the capes are really lovely, but expensive as mentioned.

However, a live sheep is not an adequate substitute. You lurkers, needn't bother suggesting that.

The shop management tends to be friendly.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I hope the management gets out with their lives still intack with those 3 paying them a visit al at once. They'll clean the racks off in a few seconds flat & leave the floor covered with the gore of the sales crew. You'll probably be paying a healthy discout for 5 capes too instead of the 1 you ordered.

I wouldn't send those 3 women to look at asses for fear they'd bring home a russled herd of mustangs that belonged to my neighbor all newly branded.

Sinsull-

It's a very small shop. I'm not sure there is room for Seamus, in addition to the three of you and maybe another regular customer or two. Be gentle!

They used to have a big sheep with a knitted sweater out in front of their old shop in the Old Port. No, it wasn't a live sheep but someone ripped it off anyway.

I've just found this thread on my return from the UK last night.

We can go look at the capes and I am 5'2" and size XL so can try them on and get a rough idea of which ones might suit. If the proprietors don't mind we might even be able to take photos to send so you can see for yourself.

I won't be coming to the UK for a while now, but we do have a line on a suitable courier in the next week or so if we can get it all sewn up by then.

Monday is set for "Shopping Day". Tami, Jacqui and several dogs have been lined up. I have had offers of other volunteers.
So Jacqui and I will try on burgundy cloaks in 2X to see how they fit and fall. Then I will choose a hunter green, Jacqui a red and Tami a blue and we will be photographed with swords in hand as the Three Musketeers.
Then Jacqui with a basket as Little Red Riding Hood and Tami in funny shoes as The Blue Boy. I will remain in green and be a tree on whom hopefully no dog will lift its leg.

At least that is the plan for now.

Cats, I suggest contacting the company and
giving them your height and measurements
before ordering. It is best to know what
size to order from their recommendation
especially on such a pricey garment.

You are right, Alice. Cats has done that but is still a bit concerned about how it will fit. I believe she has had numerous discussions with them.
I rarely order clothing over the internet because it rarely fits properly no matter what the size charts say.

At least I will know that when the real cold does come I will be really warm in a cape from Maine. I worked there many years ago. I was a counselloer at Little Sebago and Sebago Wohelo summer camps.

Cats - have you been reading this thread carefully? You are going to buy an expensive cape and trust this lot to send it to you during the worst winter in many years in the color Tami craves. Make sure you get a commitment that it will be delivered within one week of purchase or you may have a previously owned (read: USED) cape on your hands (or back).

Not surprising, Charlie. Sad but true - the shop is closed!

BUT they agreed to open at 10AM tomorrow (Saturday) for the picture taking to take place. They have the burgundy Victorian in stock in Cats' size. We will take the photos, cybermail them to Cats for approval. She can then purchase the cape and have it shipped. I recommend the shipping over Micca Express. Too many mishaps can occur (including the dreaded Alice) before it finally made its way to the UK.

Given the generosity of the store personnel, we will behave ourselves.

We went to the shop this morning and tried on one of the capes. Photos will follow via email when Micca downloads his camera at Mary's house.

The cape is beautiful and should be good for length.

They are having a closing sale, mainly of accessories, at the end of January and have some wonderful scarves, which we may have to check out.

We were actually very well behaved - we saved the bad behaviour for the Goodwill store a little later.

And we not only behaved, we absolutely charmed the sales lasy who agreed to forewarn us of the sale and even do a private appointment with us.

No sign of it yet and we have snow forecast for tonight. We might get half a millimetere if we are really lucky!

"Snow" is at least half a metre. Less than that is "flurries".

Sorry, but this is the UK. 2 snowflakes is a storm and if it settles it is a national catastrophe!

It's here ~ not the snow, the cape. It is stunning. Most definitley worth the hassle and the wait and the others going shopping and the photos etc etc. I'll get Jon to take some pikkies at the weekend and if you send me an email address I will e mail them. Thanks to everyone who joined in the is. You are brilliant, just like the cape!

So... you're a bishop and I'm the Pope. Still don't get it unless of course it's the Catholic Grammar School white anklets.
