November 28, 2014... Due to fire damage (total loss) on Sunday November 23, the leather shoppe will be closed for at least 6 weeks, for rebuilding. All current clients have been notified, that their orders are safe, and will receive them in time for Christmas gift giving. Below are four images. Thank you for your patience while rebuilding is in process. We will not be taking any orders until the rebuild is almost completed. However, I will be responding to phone calls and emails. ~ Trisha
