The leaves are turning yellow. A chill is in the air. The squirrels are starting to get nervous that they didn’t store enough nuts for the winter. Ah yes, the cycle of the seasons is upon us and here at Epstein’s we are faced with yet another event that marks the passing of time, SK Day.
It seems only yesterday that we were running around like crazy trying to fill all of the SK orders from our friends at Garagejournal. This event, started by the members of GJ, is not about getting deals or cheaper prices, but is focused on celebrating US manufacturing and the people who are committed to it. Even so, we still like to help out when we can, and this year we’ve got some pretty good freebies to throw in, little ways that we can say thank you for all your support.
What You Need to Know
For everyone that has absolutely no idea what I am talking about and is wondering what they need to do to participate, as well as other logistical concerns, here are four important points to remember:
(1) SK Day is actually not just one day. It is the entire last weekend in October (Friday 30th, Saturday 31st, Sunday 1st). Order SK stuff on our website during that time and you are participating in SK Day, or I guess it would be more accurately described as SK Dayz!
(2) If you are interested in the freebies, let us know that your order is an SK Day order. You can do this in the comments section when you checkout. If you are paying with PayPal you’ll have to send us an email saying something like, “Hey, this is Little Jimmy and Order 444 is for SK Day!”
(3) Be sure to include your shirt size if you qualify for a shirt.
(4) We will be inundated with orders, so it will take us a few days to get our bearings, so we might be a little uncommunicative right after that weekend, but don’t worry, even though you won’t hear from us, we will be busy getting your order ready. If there is a backorder situation, we will contact you as quickly as possible to let you know a realistic time frame for receiving the order.
Ok, now for the fun part. Here are the giveaways that have been worked out this year…

Additionally, if you order a certain amount of SK stuff, we have some freebies to throw in, which are as follows:
($0-$99 of SK Stuff) – That’s right. Even if you don’t spend a bunch of money, we are still gonna give you something. Every SK Day order gets an HJE Sticker and an “I’m Sorry I Spent All of Our Money on Tools” Gift Card, drawn by the immeasurably talented Charlie Mylie.
($100-$249 of SK Stuff) – You spend at least $100 bucks, you are going to get all of that stuff previously mentioned and the US made custom designed Garagejournal SK Day T-shirt (While supplies last).
($250-$499 of SK Stuff) – All the stuff previously mentioned plus SK has donated some “Power Banks”. Normally these things are kinda junky, but the one’s they sent us are real heavy and substantial. Good for charging cell phones and anything that can plug into a USB port. We are also receiving 20 coffee mugs, 20 water bottles, and 20 little screwdrivers, so we will throw in other SK merch as well. (While supplies last)
($500 & Up of SK Stuff) – All the stuff previously mentioned plus we are going to throw in a 3 Piece Cushion Grip Wrench/Plier Set from SK’s parent company Ideal Industries. Set includes a 6″ and 8″ adjustable wrench and a flush 6″ slip joint pliers. All US made.
Any questions please feel free to ask. Hope everyone has a safe and happy SK Day Weekend!
