What's New This Year-
From Eddie & Kathy Kimmel:
We certainly enjoy and are grateful to be able to take care of the Boot & Saddlemakers Trade Show! Along with the responsibility of the show, we try to always remember our mission, which began this trade show over 25 years ago. For us, that mission has always been and will always be, to provide a place where leather vendors and leather crafters could come together to do business and promote the industry. And as a side benefit, sharing ideas with each other and being in the leather business itself. Not to mention, we all get to enjoy visiting with old friends & make new ones. Over 80% of attendees are there for that reason alone, and we have kept records to show this. They are very busy with their successful businesses, and do not wish to participate in the Boot or Saddle Contest, they come to meet with their suppliers and to purchase products.
So this year, we will provide an area for display of a single boot or a saddle, but there will not be a Boot or Saddle Contest. Bring your boot or saddle (saddle stands are not provided), to the front desk when you get to the show. We will sign you in to display your product. We will provide a display card, advertising your name and business. You will need to sign a waiver, showing you are solely responsible for the safety of your product. We cannot be responsible for your boot or saddle while it is displayed at the show.
We wish to express appreciation to Jim Taylor, Gary Cunningham & Mike Vaughn for their fine work heading up the Boot & Saddle Contests in the past years. They spent many hours organizing & working with the contests.
We hope you have a great year and we look forward to seeing you in Wichita Falls!
