I found out about Cabela’s (via Jason Kottke’s blog) a couple weeks ago and ordered their catalog to take a look at. Cabela’s is a Sidney, Nebraska-based direct marketer and specialty retailer of hunting, fishing, camping and related outdoor recreation merchandise. Right now their catalog is the most widely read thing in the Cooper household. I got it before we were thinking of getting the cabin but since then it has been a lot of fun to look through. Our reactions go from “that would be so comfortable” on one page to “No. We are never getting elk antler chandeliers” when looking at the next page. We only got the Home and Cabin catalog, and apparently their full catalog is almost 1400 pages. Until then we will have to take our time with browsing their website.
For some reason I didn’t know they did retail shopping as well until a friend told me how cool their stores are. Take a look at this photo. Now I hate shopping but this looks okay to me.
They have moved into Canada and I hope the check out their Winnipeg store the next time I head east.
