    Leather Help

    So, a long time ago in a galaxy much liek this one. Well, exactly this one. I had a great little leather outlet that sold leather in different weight cut into various sized pieces so one could purchase what they need instead of a whole hide. That place sold to tandy and is no more. Does anyone else know any place like this? I need a couple of pieces of leather to make a couple holsters out of for my custom and don't need or want to spend the money on a whole hide.

    I should say. I'm looking for some veg tan tooling or shoulder leather. 8-9 oz. specifically. And if your mom is shopping with someone who is selling any leather at 167.00 a yard, she needs to stop shopping with them. Tandy and leather Unlimited both sell whole garment hides at 99 bucks.

Just let me know how much you are looking for and what your budget is, I can get leather for you at employee prices with low shipping. If you want.
