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
this morning:

(lost these a few years ago)

Lazy person that I am, I
just snap these pictures from the window next to the

desk here.

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

for yourself:

our dog sells good leather at great prices

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

shoe/boot/slipper plant
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,
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

completely.  Working
on that.

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-
