You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom put food on the table, a dad pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders- and they are the ones we strive to make happy. Thank you for supporting small businesses!" - unknown

Awhile back North End Threads donated two bags to a silent auction happening at a bicycle event in Oregon. They responded with the following statement, giving their impression upon receiving the bags:

"The Bicycle Transportation Alliance is so grateful for your donation of two of your lovely handlebar bags. When they arrived everyone remarked how well they're made. We also love that they look like a normal handbag when they're not on the bike. We're proud to have them in our auction and are sure they'll be snatched up right away! Thanks for supporting the BTA!"
