CHEAP LEATHER HIDES FOR SALE!
Natural Brown Milled Cowhide Sides
soft brown leather hides on salerustic leather hides on sale
Natural looking leather hides on sale free USA shippingchap leather hides on sale
This is our new batch of Natural Brown cowhide sides.  These are USA cattlehide sides, chromium tanned, drum dyed, and milled for a long time to
make the leather soft.  These are very soft - napa soft.  They're also very 'craft grade' and by that we mean they all have dirt marks, scratches, holes,
bad spots, maladies of the hide, and a bad attitude.  Recovered from a dusty warehouse where they had been folded, stacked, and left alone for years.
Still, the leather is fine, smells new, and feels great.  It just looks like it's had a rough life.  3.5-4 oz in thickness, or about 1/16", or 1.4-1.6mm.  Mellow temper.
Average size is 17-19 sq ft each, and we have them priced at $75 each, or get 5 for $325, or 10 for $600, 48-state shipping included.  Thanks to
USPS flat rate boxes we can ship individual sides (not sets of 5 or 10 - sorry) to AK, HI, and the Territories for free too.

Well, our supplier got to poking around in their own warehouse and they discovered these sides, which are the hides from which those sleeve parts were cut.
Naturally, our team of PhD employees has named this leather 'Sleeve Sides.'  Nice job, boys.  Take the rest of the week off.

Red Wine Sides - Save some Money!
Deep red leather hides on saleDark red leather cowhides for saleCraft grade leather hides on sale, discount leather hides
A new item here at Brettuns Village - Red Wine sides are chromium tanned and medium temper (regular for you old schoolers).  Thickness is 4 oz, or 1/16", or 1.6mm.
These are a deep burgundy color, smooth on the surface, and have a nice feel.  That's where the good news ends.  These were recovered from long term storage - they're fine, but they have fold lines/creases,
and discolored/lighter areas where sunlight must have come in through a window and done its thing.  So, bottom line?  Good leather, has some problems, priced accordingly.  These are still, in
spite of the problems, nice leather hides.  Deep red color, so we're calling it Red Wine.  Belch. Excuse me.  Sold in two sizes:  Large sides are 17 sq ft or above, small sides are under 17 sq ft.
Large sides are $75 each; Small sides are $60 each - - and both of these prices include USA shipping.

BELTING LEATHER!
Caramel brown belting leather hides on saleGlossy brown leather hides on saleheavy belt leather hides for sale
leather hides that will make good beltsgood strap leather hides for sale free shippingthick leather for making knife sheaths
Right around the holidays we always seem to need a belt.  The stresses of the season, the pressure to find the right gift, being on time to all those holiday gatherings.
Who couldn't use a good, stiff belt at this time of year?  It's just good sense - you don't want to waltz into the company holiday party and have your britches hit the floor.
What?  You thought what?  I don't get it - I said a belt - are you feeling OK?  Get with it, Rudolph.  Our caramel Belting hides are from USA cattle, vegetable tanned
and finished with this glossy caramel color, compressed to make the leather firm, and staked (dried while being stretched) to help the leather resist further stretching.
These hides are FIRM and almost all of them have a brand.  These are Double Butts- the entire back half of the cowhide, and they run about 28-30 square feet of surface area.
Thickness is heavy at 8-9 oz, so these belting hides weigh about 15-16 pounds each!  Of course, they all hit our loading dock on a day when it was just yours truly working out back
and the pallet jack was nowhere to be found.  Now I need a belt.  Not a leather one, either.  Keep up, man.  Note:  This is not tooling leather - it's been compressed.
Caramel Belting Double Butts, 28-30 sq ft each, 8-9 oz, $185 each  $135 each - save $50!!.  Price includes shipping to any address in the 48 contiguous United States.

RAINCOAT SIDES - Two Colors
black cowhide leather for pursesblack cowhide leather, PU coatedblack cowhide leather by the side

These chromium tanned cowhide sides run about 16-18 sq ft each and are 3.25 to 3.5 oz in thickness (less than one sixteenth of an inch) and are about a medium/regular temper.
Finished with a semi glossy topcoat and then milled briefly to yield a wrinkly texture on the surface.  The gloss, the wrinkles, and the recent breezy weather combined to
force Charlie to say, in his usual understated, low volume way, 'Looks like a gosh danged raincoat to me.'  So there you have it.
Available in Black or Smoke, which is a charcoal gray.  Smoke sides only run about 10-12 sq ft each - small calf hides.  The black ones run 16-18 sq ft each.

A new addition to the line-up here at Brettuns Village Leather, where all of the employees are physically attractive and mentally exceptional but
we all take our daily marching orders from a black lab, is this glossy, firm temper black USA cattlehide.  Smooth, glossy, and firm, 2 to 2.5 oz in thickness (that's 0.8 to 1.0 mm).
Expect to receive a side that has a hole or two, and there may be some spots where the finish is mottled, so this leather has a lot of character.  We like it.
Small sides run about 17 sq ft.  $70 each, and yes, USA shipping is included (note: AK, HI, PR, GU, etc - your leather will be folded to fit in USPS boxes)

Tanned by Curtidos Bengala, this is Black Jacket - their well-known motorcycle leather.  Sides are available in two sizes:  Above 20 sq ft (this means large) or under 20 sq ft (small).  Al have a nice texture on the surface, as shown above.
Thickness is 3.5 to 4 oz (1/16" or 1.3-1.5mm), with a regular temper.  Surface is quite consistent in pattern, and the thickness is very consistent as well.  ALL of these sides
have a hole or scratch, so we're calling these e into the B Grade category - still good leather and maybe you're cutting smaller items so a hole over there at that end of the hide is OK.
So, we have Grade B sides, and we have each of these in two sizes - over 20 sq ft, or under 20 sq ft.  Take your pick - priced as shown in the drop-down menu.
These prices INCLUDE shipping to any address in the 48 contiguous United States.
