Can I make a purse from your cowboy boots?
Yes! I love to making memorial bags and custom bags from your boots. Please email me at Chris@ChrisThompsonBags.com with your wishes and we'll get started on how to make them come true.
Do I wholesale or light bulk?
I do! I offer a 20% discount for a minimum 8 piece mix and match.
How do you care for your bag?
Honestly the more distressed they get the more character they have! However it is a good idea to dust your bag with a soft brush or cloth and use a leather cleaner/conditioner...Bickman's Bick 4 works well on most leathers except suede.
Everyone wants to know where I get my boots?
That's top secret :) But I will tell you that 95% of the boots I use are new but not wearable/sell-able boots for one reason or another. I have saved the little beauties from landfills but I did not tear up wearable pairs of boots.
Are they full boots to start with or just shafts?
Full boots that I cut the feet off of with my band saw. Gotta love power tools!
Do I take boot donations?
Yes! And then I make wearable bags out of them and when they sell I donate 30% of the profit to www.vets4childrescue.org whose mission is to rescue trafficked children in the US. Please send your boots to 1309 E. 16th St. Loveland, CO 80538
What do I do with the left over foot part?
I have used them for a few little ideas but none have taken off. So, if you have a great idea let me know! Keep in mind it takes a hunting knife to remove the leather from the sole, difficult! AND there is a metal shank that runs in the arch of the sole. My saw can't cut through that.
See my dilemma? :
Do I do repairs?
Yes! Please contact me for info.
