Business appeared brisk and vendors happy at this year’s Rocky Mountain Leather Trade Show. Vendors, buyers and sightseers crowded the Sheridan Discount Holidays © Holiday Inn from convention center to atrium, as well as some of the downstairs rooms over the weekend. The show started Friday, and continues from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. today.

Among vendors is Trina Weber from Nampa, Idaho, who builds spurs. She’s been coming to the show in Sheridan for 12 years.1

Another vendor, John Eberle, said the Sheridan show is special.2

Visitors to this year’s show included John Hall who, with his wife, Kathleen, drove from Helena, Mont., to attend the event. Hall said he’s been working leather as a hobby for nearly 60 years.3

Another visitor was Sheridan resident Helen Mitchell. She was also a leather worker for many years, until her eyesight began causing problems.4

This was the 23rd year for the show in Sheridan, which is produced by the staff of the Leather Crafters and Saddlers Journal.
