Chris’ Story…From the Horse’s Mouth
I started out driving the roads in Oklahoma when I was 18 years old. I would go to sale barns, flea markets and anyone that had horses or an old barn. I would stop and ask “do you have any old spurs you would sell?” I put a small collection together in about 6 months. As I got better in the field of collecting spurs, I moved on to collecting and trading in saddles, old chaps, bits, etc; After about a year of traveling the roads and putting a small collection together, I went to my first spur show. Boy, was it exciting to see all the different spurs, saddles, chaps and anything that related to the old west. I was really hooked on this old stuff.
I found a older man from Texas and sold my collection of spurs. After selling my collection, I thought I would never see a poor day. As time went on, I moved into the field of civil war items. I did the same thing, hitting the road, going to shows and learning the business.
Through the years I have put some really good items back and will be adding them to my new website. Although it will be hard to part with a lot of the items, I feel it is time. I hope new collectors or dealers will enjoy the items as I have through the years. Feel free to browse around and hopefully you will find something you can’t live without.
