BEST SELLING PRODUCT EXPANDS

BEST SELLING PRODUCT EXPANDS

As you may have read back in September 2018, the Stirrup Keyring was one of my best selling products. Well, this year I thought I'd enhance the collection by adding another colour to the range... NEWMARKET TAN Saddlers know this colour of leather as 'London Tan'. However, I tend to refer to it as Newmarket Tan as it reminds me of the infamous Newmarket racing blankets that racehorses wear. Introducing the new Stirrup Keyring I personally love this colour and therefore have chosen to introduce it to my accessories collection for the forthcoming year. With some new and exciting products coming this year I definitely want to make them in this colour, so if you love this colour as much as I do, then watch this space. The Newmarket Tan Stirrup keyring will be going live on the website next weekend on Saturday 1st February 2020. BRASS OR NICKEL The only choice you will need to make is whether you go for the brass stirrup iron or the...

DISCONTINUED STOCK

DISCONTINUED STOCK

Two weeks into January and I wanted to bring your attention to my one of a kind discontinued stock sale. This is not something I will be doing on a regular basis but with the recent changes, as explained in my previous blog, I have some stock that I have no reason to keep due to it being discontinued. Already there have been some items snapped up so if there is something that takes your fancy, I'd take a look before they are gone for good. As an added bonus, all items are sent to a UK address absolutely FREE OF CHARGE, so the price you see if the price you pay. Bracelets These handmade leather bracelets are great accessories for both men and women. You can have them personalised (free of charge) with a name, initials or a short slogan to make them that little more extra special as a gift. Keyrings All these keyrings are one of a kind limited editions. The moustache keyrings are...

SORTING OUT THE STUDIO

SORTING OUT THE STUDIO

Following on from my last post Change is Afoot, I have spent the last week or so sorting out the office and the studio. Along with some personal changes, I have been putting the wheels in motion to change some aspects of the business. My business promotes handmade saddlery and leather work, made from the finest of British materials and this is not likely to change. However, my interest and passion has shifted slightly which means I will now be hand making a different type of product or products as time goes by and my collections grow. I have become tired of repairing cheap and poorly made leather work which seems to have become more and more available as these items snap and break very easily but the time it takes to repair such items are costly to both saddler and customer. I intend to be much more particular as to what leather items I will be repairing in future as I have so much...

CHANGE IS AFOOT

CHANGE IS AFOOT

Hey, it's been so long since I last spoke to you all and as the title suggests...change is afoot at The Lady Saddler, which is why I am here. Firstly...Happy New Year!!! [Pinch, Punch, First of the Month! 👊 lol ] It is the first day of a New Year and a new decade no less...how exciting! Did you have a wonderful Christmas and now recovering from all the festivities the Christmas and New Year holiday brings? My Christmas was very restful; spending time with the family and close friends, eating and drinking far too much and sleeping more than usual; I call that a bonus though, don't you?! Are you new to this website??? If so, then you may want to start at the beginning! Taking A Break Some of you may remember that back in December I announced on my social media that I was taking an impromptu break. (If you want to catch up on this news then feel free to click here.) At...

My First AGM

My First AGM

On Thursday 12th September, I attended my very first 'Society of Master Saddlers' AGM. An AGM is commonly known as an Annual General Meeting where members of a society, association or club attend a meeting once a year to hear about how it as performed. Never Attended... I've never attended this Society's meeting before because I've always felt I've not been qualified enough to attend. In actual fact the Society welcomes all levels of saddlers and saddle fitters as long as you are a paid member. Capel Manor This year, Capel Manor College in Enfield, London was the venue. This is currently the only college in the UK that offers a full-time Saddlery course. However, they also provide other leather work courses too such as, shoe making. Travelling South I'm not an experienced train traveller and my personal anxieties would be on overdrive. So being as the college is located just off the M25, I chose to drive. It was a pleasant trip from the Midlands down to Enfield and I...
