Deerhide trading

Submitted by Burt Gunn on 11/11/2002. ( )

Some years back we used to send our deerhides to a tannery in upstate NY and in return the tannery would send back (for a small fee)a pair of buckskin gloves. I would like to know if this can still be done and, if so, where to send the hide.

years ago provided a service like this as we did in the 60's in our shop. You can check with him and I'm sure there's other placed that do it too. They used to call them "skin banks"......

I suppose I was remiss in not including that pertinent information. Another case of taking too much for granted, thanks again
