U.S. 66 got its name right here in Springfield, Mo making our beautiful town the Birthplace of Route 66. Every year our wonderful town throws a big celebration and Anvil is happy to be apart of that celebration. This year marks the 9th anniversary of the event, taking place Aug 9-10. For those of you who don't know, our shop is located right off of Route 66 on Park Central Square. Its a fantastic event that celebrates everything Main Street USA has to offer.
First, you should know that we'll have the doors open. There will be some deals on purchases made in the shop. What will that entail? Well you'll have to come by and see.
Obviously we have a lot of fun every year getting to see all the exciting cars and bikes that come to town. Plus, delicious food and good people... Basically its everything you could ask for in a classic American event. We hope to see you there, make sure to come by the shop and say hello!
If you do your research you will find hundreds of websites that sell mass produced thin leather wallets from Asia that really don't have that "special" quality about them. Plus they're basically designed to fall apart in a year or two, so that's right out. No no, you want something that is unique, nicely crafted and built to last don't you? That's the type of gift that really makes a statement.
Knowing your tools and materials, making stuff with your hands, and doing it to make something that will last a long, long time are all fundamental facets of the leatherwork we do. Our wallets, belts, and various other products are crafted with care so that while you might spend more on one made by us, you're not going to have to buy a new one in a year or two because it wore out... but you might want to just because of how awesome they are.
As a continuation of our "Way Too Early" Gift guide for 2019 we'll be covering a few more ideas that we think will make a great gift for your loved ones. In this section we'll be covering some of the more luxurious leather offerings we have available for the person in your life who really deserves the top shelf gift.
