Brettuns Village Trunks & Leather
Old Trunks, New Leather. All from Maine.
November 5, 2002
Promised I’d let you know
about some new arrivals in the barn here at Brettuns
Village Leather. First,
let’s get something out of the way right off the bat.
Summer’s long gone, and
Fall never came. We went straight from late summer to
the dead of winter this
year. How do I know? Everything outside is white,
that’s how. Last night
it was snowing to beat the band out there. Here’s a
couple of pictures from
(lost these a few years ago)
Lazy person that I am, I
just snap these pictures from the window next to the
My favorite summer memory?
Swimming in Brettuns Pond, as usual. I like to
snorkel in the pond, scope
out where the fish are, then go back later with rod &
reel and wonder why they
moved. I have a faithful snorkeling companion. See
We got in a load of unusual
parts and accessories for your leather crafts.
Cordlocks, decorative woven
trim, and – brace yourself because I know you’ve
been waiting for these –
lacing eyelets! Yes, it’s true. After months of going
without lacing eyelets,
we finally have them back in stock. These came from a
and have a nice, antique brass finish. Oh, how I’ve
missed having eyelets to
count. Rolling across the table, getting stuck in the
soles of my workboots, gouging
up the wood floors, slipping and sliding through
every nook and cranny.
Look – get em quick before they go out as scrap metal.
See them here:
You know those black double
butt splits we have? Still have way too many of
those – so I guess they’re
overpriced or something. It’s useful leather for
linings, building up layers,
or making ‘distressed’ leather items. Let’s sell
those things. 5 hides
for $100, delivered (USA only). You should end up with
about 90 square feet of
leather, delivered right to your barn from ours, for
what seems like a reasonable
price to me.
Use PayPal (to email@example.com),
or drop us an e-mail to let us know
you’re mailing a check,
or call toll-free (1-844-492-4930) to leave your order on
the machine. Simple.
By the way – our credit card page seems to have died
Well, I’d love to type some
more but I’ve gotta go change the oil in the
snowblower and get it cranked
up. It’s always a little cantankerous the first
time each year. I
tell it to relax, only eight months until it gets to rest
again. Nine, tops.
Over and out-
