Brettuns Village Trunks & Leather
Old Trunks, New Leather. All from Maine.
July 10, 2001
I keep promising to leave
you alone, but we keep getting more leather in.
It’s that time of year –
leather product companies and even some tanneries
end their fiscal year, so
we get a lot of buying opportunities. It’s fun.
Except the unloading part.
Posted some items I though
you’d like to know about. Garment-grade sides
in off-white and dark brown,
and horse sides, 2.5 oz, in golden tan, dark
brown, and black are all
posted on our Sides & Hides page. You know the
price already – 50 bucks,
delivered. The horse hides are nice, they run
big, about 25 sq ft each.
On the Scraps page I posted
some more thick stuff, 10 oz up to 16 oz, in a
mix of colors including
brown, tan, black, and red. These are smaller
than our other thick scraps,
these run about 1 to 2.5 sq feet. Priced
lower, so you can build
your armor on the cheap. Or whatever else you’re
We got in a box of elk hide
scrap pieces – but don’t get too excited. It
weighed in at a whopping
20 pounds. I donated 8 pounds of it to the Boy
Scouts in town, the rest
we might just hang onto for a while. It’s weird,
spongy stuff, black, trying
to find a larger stockpile of it somewhere.
I’ll let you know if I find
it. Oh great, you’re thinking, another
