Hi Again:

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


Stay warm-
