Hand made Leather Conchos and Western Tack, Miscelaneous

I started this thread over so I could delete the items that are gone and add new things. All my leather conchos are made by hand by me. I tool them, paint them, add the rhinestones, etc. I use 'new old stock' for them I buy from dealers, old Swarovski items, West Germany, old Japan. I design them, I guess the way I like them, but I can make some to your specifications if I can get the materials. The price is for the pair. if you want to stand out in the show ring this summer and have something no one else has, these are for you.
I work at home, I'm on SSDI for a disability and these keep me busy plus allow me the extra money necessary to keep my horse and still eat Not as good as she eats but eat!!
My bridles are all gone guys, I'm sorry. I can ship these for $3.00 on the USA because some go over the three oz limit because the backs or materials make them heavy. I have over 61-100% feedback on eBay from the last 2 months but I want to get away from there and just focus on horse items. Thanks for looking.

6 Vintage Royal Absorbent Catch All Coasters, Horses

I got these in the original box, and stuck them in a drawer. Now these have never been used, so I put new, but I just learned that ‘new old stock’ is things found in closed factories, stores and the like. If they’ve retailed they are ‘old old stock’ I guess or something, LOL. I never opened the box until today and did I get a surprise, plus a little help dating them. One of the 4 dividers had Sun Sign coasters in it although the material is identical. So I guess we’re talking the 60s! Anyway the material is a felt on top with something similar to wax paper on the bottom. These are NICE collectibles.
these can ship with something else small in an envelope.

I'm sorry, I forgot the price for the coasters

I really shouldn't do this stuff early in the morning. They are 99 cents + Shipping.

Does anyone else tool leather on here?

I'm taking ans older, well made bridle and going to bling it up for shows. I made a few mistakes so far.....I took it apart and cleaned it and then used Vaseline on it to oil it and protect it. I use my hands for this part so I can get under loops and all the hidey places. I let it dry over night and now it's so soft and supple. Unfortunately to tool leather, you need to wet it. And I spent hours making sure with the Vaseline it would be protected from the elements I tried to tool a little on the reins yesterday, but you could barely see the marks I wanted to paint. Now I need to figure out how to 'unprotect' it so I can tool it, then add the protection all over again. I guess maybe plain ole soap and water but man I hate to do that now it's looking so good I haven't been doing this all that long and sure would like to be able to talk to someone else about it. This is it before......after, nobody knows.

Decorated Shufly, Silver Elephants and Beads 8.99

This is a new shufly I decorated with silver beads and elephants to ‘charm’ you on your way. The hang from the top in a way that makes them slightly jingle. The noise is soothing and the shufly will keep all the nasties away from your horse’s belly
I combine shipping and I ship the cheapest way possible through the PO.

I came across something I wanted to get done and maybe you could help me out with it. "ID Badges" We do a lot of trail riding and I wanted to get some ID badges for my horses that way if I get knocked off, bucked off, fall off and loose my horse someone can get it back to me. I would want like the horses name, my name, and a phone number on it so that the horse could be identified. Let me know if you can do something like this... Probably would attach to saddle or headstall just havent figured out which yet....

I could do it, AND make it pretty

I'd do a regular 2" concho so there'd be room for everything, then add a leather strap so you could tie it to the saddle or on the bridle if you preferred, like on the chin strap. If I put a leather tie on it I guess you could put it on the headstall, saddle or breast plate. I think it's a very good idea although not one I had thought about. Let me know what you need and how you want it to look. Thanks, Cheryl

Cracking me up, ROFL

I do these blingy things but I don't even like some of them It just seems to be what people want. Could you give me the boy's colors too, that will help me pick a nice color without using rhinestones, and such. Thanks, Cheryl
