I needed a hobby and somehow got into leather, bags, shoes, purses, coats,etc. I love to work on them! I’m just starting out in this, and am doing a lot by trial and error. I also have a limited budget which means leather paints and deglazer are luxury items to me. Anyhow, I have three Coach purses one Dooney purse and one Longchamp leather purse. All vintage I’m need of TLC. Does this site do any training videos or have any suggestions for the newbie?
"Debi the Restorer"
I'm a Nurse Practitioner/College Professor by Profession...Vintage Leatherware Restorer by Passion!!! I was born and raised in the southern US...this contributed to my love of quality craftsmanship, my care and honor of all things that may be passed down to the next generation, and my pride in hard work! These qualities have led me far in life and have certainly contributed to my love of Vintage Coach. I've been collecting and restoring fine vintage leatherware since the 80's. It's my goal to preserve these beauties for the next generation and beyond!!!
