We’re glad you’re here and reading this. Welcome to the lakeside blog, Down by the lake. Where did that name come from? Customers have asked why in the world did we name it “Down by the lake”. Besides being “The Lakeside Collection” one of the most popular catalogs of all time (at least in my opinion), we are actually located on a pond or very small lake. No, I’m not kidding. Pretty neat huh? Currently it’s frozen, it is winter after all. I’ll get a shot of the “lake” a little later this month to make sure it’s really frozen. As soon as the ice is thick enough, some of us that work here want to sneak out on the ice for a quick skate at lunch. Anyone here like to ice skate? I sure do.
