Texas Hospitality in Louisiana

Recommended Posts

Some of you may have noticed bikermutt07 mentioning he has granite remnants to give away.  I took him up on his offer and met him at Tandy Leather in Bossier City, LA, where he not only gave me two large granite slabs, but some nice leather and a bunch of tools to help me get started!  Then he graciously guided me through Tandy and helped me find everything on my shopping list.  I asked a clerk if he gets a commission on sales.  She grinned and took the 5th Amendment.  The staff there knows him by name, so it was all in good fun.

Thanks again, bikermutt07, for your generosity and hospitality!

It was my pleasure, Mr olfart. I do some sales at Snyder's. I guess that part of me kind of took over. 

I really enjoyed helping. I don't get to spend much time talking leather craft (except here).

P.S. I'm from the Great Republic. You can take the boy out of the Republic, but you can't take the Republic outta tha boy.

Yes, I know.  It's nice that you are willing to share Texas hospitality even across the border in a foreign land... :rockon:

Not too bad. Only an hour away for me. And I usually only go there to pick up supplies once every month or two... or three. Lol

Ditto/2d that, I had been trolling sale sites looking for a scrap piece of granite or quartz that i could pickup...pretty much had given up on it.  Then bikermutt came to the rescue totally unexpected.  Can't say enough how awesome it is to find someone that loves the craft and is so generous with advice and helping get folks started up, in a world of electrons for entertainment, it takes more effort to get the young'ns to see the satisfaction of doing something that doesn't come with instant gratification.

I hear you, in arizona i lived an hour+ from Tucson, but had to make trips there for various reasons, always tried to line up my trips with a tandy visit...or line up a tandy visit with a trip?  I'm not sure which...lol.
