We’re often asked about the history of the old items we sell, but it’s rare that bios come along with them.  Believe me, we ask, but often it’s hearsay or speculation.  Sometimes, we get lucky and we find something at the original source … a shut-down factory or grandpa’s old workshop … where provenance can be revealed.  But most often it’s left to our imagination and sometimes more fun that way.

Made in Texas

texas michael malone leather coin bracelet vintage handmade guitar strap cowboy hat

I’m thrilled to be carrying these unique vintage coin and leather bracelets made by my friend and quintessential Texan, Michael Malone.

A master hatmaker and leather craftsman from the Texas hill country, Michael’s hats have been featured in movies such as Quigley Down Under, Lonesome Dove, Tombstone, and The Good Ol’ Boys.  While his guitar straps are used by such talents as Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Jerry Jeff Walker, Emmylou Harris and The Rolling Stones.

These cool unisex bracelets are created from domed vintage world coins, skirting leather handstamped with old saddle stamps and rubbed antique finishes.  Fashionable on their own, they also stack beautifully with other bracelets.

A little bit country, a little bit rock & roll!
