Jewelry Made From B-17 Bomber Skins Highlights New EAA Gift Catalog
October 23, 2013 - Give a piece of the legendary B-17 Flying Fortress this holiday season with original, exclusive jewelry made from the actual exterior skins of EAA's Aluminum Overcast, available through the 2013 EAA merchandise catalog.
This jewelry is available only through EAA, made by Criffin Designs from the skins that were removed after being damaged in a 2012 hailstorm. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this jewelry will help maintain the B-17 in flying condition for years to come.
EAA's new 52-page catalog also features the latest and best of all things aviation and EAA-related, from clothing and memorabilia to books and DVDs. More than 30 items have special EAA-member pricing and many are "Made in the USA" items discovered by EAA especially for the catalog.
Another gift available for the airplane lover is "The Gift of Oshkosh" - admission to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014. Advance tickets purchased online receive free shipping for the limited edition 2014 "Cleared Direct" Oshkosh T-shirt.
Tens of thousands of EAA members will receive the catalogs in the mail, and many catalog items are available at the EAA AirVenture Museum gift shop in Oshkosh. Catalog items can be purchased on ShopEAA.org. You can also browse catalog items on Pinterest.
