Read a July 7 2008 article about me!



"I purchased from Heavy Leather on e-bay recently and he's an excellent seller! You should all save your pennies and buy his wonderful creations. Prompt delivery, and a sturdy, well made product. When I first saw the collar I purchased I thought it might be a bit big, but it lays perfectly on my neck and is just gorgeous! I am a very happy customer."  ^_^ 

-- Kate, 23 year old full time student. "...and bought the collar for club wear (Goth scene)... the friends who have seen it were very impressed!"

"Well I was all ready to remain upset with you for taking longer than usual time to get these Gondor bracers to me - I just received them and even have them on as I am typing this - what can I say?!? they are gorgeous, beautiful, fantastic, etc. your tooling work is awesome -they stand up to minute inspection - I am extremely pleased with them - especially because they FIT PERFECTLY!!! even my skinny arms! Thanks"
