Trunks & Leather
Old Trunks, New Leather.
All from Maine.
August 19, 2009
Today is the 19th?
What happened to the first half of August?
Where’d it go? You seen
it over your way, Eben? I guess it went
uptacamp or to Florder to
soak up heat or something. Mid August –
that can only mean one thing
– first frost is only a few weeks away.
Weekly Deal alert – if you
need a lot of leather on the cheap, and if
you’re not all that picky
about the color, and by that I mean for
example that any shade of
blue will suit you nicely, then you should
take a look at our Deal
of the Week. A stack of ten Denim Print Suede
bends, delivered to your
door, as long as your door is somewhere in
the 48 contibluejeanious
states, for a flat rate of $100. Flat dead
even. No shipping
charges, no handling charges, no processing fees,
no service charges.
Just 100 smackers and that’s it. This breaks
down to about a buck a square
foot, and our free shipping makes it
almost like the tannery
is right there in your parlor. That explains
the smell. Just kidding.
Did you have a horse when
you were a kid, or did you get to ride a
horse that belonged to someone
else and you loved every minute of it?
Or maybe you just dreamed
of having your own pony? That’s so cute.
Well, grow up, Jack, those
days are gone and the horse died of old
age. Rough news, I
know, but there’s a silver lining – his/her hide
has been made into awesome
black garment grade leather, and we’ve got
it on our site. Three
sizes of horse hides, struck through, black,
very wearable stuff.
Tough break for old MuffinTop, but at least her
hide didn’t go to waste.
Check the site if you’re interested. Look
for our Black Gold hides
– named after a race horse. That’s just
If black leather is what
you’re after, but you need it thicker than
usual, you may want to take
a look at our new Matador sides. These
run 7-8 oz and are very
smooth and clean. Chromium tanned, good
leather from USA cows, tanned
and finished in the USA as well. Why’d
we give it a Spanish name?
I’ll have to check with the Nomenclature
Committee on that one. See
the Hides and Sides page for Matador,
We also have another new
type of black side leather on the site,
running about 5.5/6 oz,
a bit more firm than usual, and great for
making straps, dog collars,
or long strips that you can wrap around a
Blue Spruce tree this coming
December for your planned Punk Christmas
gala. Rock on.
I think that’s what the kids say, but, as a new AARP
member I probably have that
wrong. Check out our Black Strap sides on
the site, please.
Need a nice, soft coffee
brown cowhide side leather, and do you need
that side to be big?
So big, in fact that you’re pretty sure you saw
this particular cow on the
East German Olympic Team back in the late
1970s (28-29 sq ft each)?
Well then, you need our Java Alert sides.
This leather is beautiful
and looks very, very useful. It’s on the
Sides and Hides page.
What else is new? Hmmm,
the weather is hot..oh – I remember – the
rain stopped! Almost
5 days without a major frog floater, so maybe
we’re heading into a new
weather pattern (hot, dry, and dusty). The
entire State of Maine is
ready for it, no doubt, so we’re not even
complaining much about the
Big D-ring shipment is in
– we’ll get these added to the site as soon
as we can. I’ll probably
type out another one of these digital fish
wrappers to let you know
when they’re posted. I know – you can barely
wait. You were always
a bit sarcastic you know.
Over and out-
