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...

Making The First Sale

Making The First Sale

Christmas 2016 The first real opportunity for me to make and sell some leather products since launching my business, The Lady Saddler in September was at Christmastime. Working full time, being a mum and a wife as well as attending saddler training every three months meant I already had a lot to do, so I didn't want to over stretch myself and get bogged down even more.  So, along with some leather repair work, that I took on in October and November, I decided to start making some made-to-measure belts and magic braided bracelets from the very best Sedgewick's bridle leather. All the belts were hand stitched and finished off with a chrome or brass buckle and was available in either black or brown Sedgwick's leather.  The braided bracelets were made from black or brown Sedgwick's leather and finished off using a brass, chrome or black press studs. At first, I was nervous to send the items out but after receiving some really good...
