BRAND NEWS & EXCITINGS
Welcome to 2021. What a whirlwind of a year we've all had! Let me bring you up to speed with what's going on at The Stardust Trading Post.
Maybe I should start by explaining what that's all about! Aside from being a playground for our baby boy Bucky James Bentall who we love to bits (check out his first pair of hand-made birthday-boy boots!), we're excited to let you know that The Stardust Trading Post is the first permanent home of DUST LEATHER CO. + MORE 🎶. We look forward to the day you can come visit us in our little village of Clinton, BC, nestled quietly 3 hours north of Hope.
Though we're getting eager for the new music climate that'll surely rise from the ashes, we've been able (and had) to shift our focus and energies largely towards boot-making. It's been a fun ride with plenty of changes and challenges. The first iteration of The Stardust Trading Post was in a little log-house building at 1600 Old Cariboo Hwy. It was a rustic albeit temporary home for the tools and machinery. Great memories and boots were made there in the early days of isolation, but we outgrew it in a hurry. Throughout the year, we negotiated to purchase a much larger, older, vibier and suitable building two doors down at 1522 Old Cariboo Hwy. Now we're talking!! Last fall, we rolled up our sleeves, put our heads down, moved in and set up. For the first time in my boot-making career, I have a dream shop set up that's all mine, exactly how I want it!! BAM. That's a great feeling and it's ultimately it's doing wonderful things for my boot-making.
That's the history, here's the present! I'll cut to the chase - > #❤️👢
