Leather Love: Madrid

You'd never know from the look of this place all the treasures that it holds inside.

While we were in Europe, we stopped at Curtidos Villaverde, a shop in Madrid that has been selling leather-working tools in the same location since 1887. Jerry was like a kid in a candy store looking at all of the threads, buckles, and tools they had.

Getting into leather-working has opened us up to experiences that we wouldn't have had otherwise. Being here made me wonder if this place will be around for another 125 years. Will people still be making hand-made leather products? I sure hope so.
