Ric’s Leather

Handcrafted items are one of a kind, made for YOU, personalized, and convey a special meaning to those receiving them. You’ll find a few stock items at Ric’s Leather, but largely I work on a custom basis. Even a stock design can and should be personalized! Let me make that special leather item for you, a friend or a loved one. Ric’s Leather Hours By appointment Email Email Ric’s Leather Phone 918-704-7900 A note from a post on the Pittsboro Business Association’s FB page that ran on June 14, 2020: A quick note to introduce myself. I’m Ric Harber, the “Ric” of Ric’s Leather & Engraving. My wife and I moved to Chatham County in January of this year. I’m retired from the federal government where I worked as an economist. When I retired, I turned my hobby into a business in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With the move here, I brought my leather-working tools and laser engraver with me. While I don’t have a storefront, I am working and would love to be of service. Laser engravers allow me to engrave or mark a wide variety of substrates which makes them fantastic for personalizing products or promotional materials. For example, any of the beverage cups that keep your drinks warm or cold for extended periods make an excellent canvas for a name or logo. Custom leatherwork means tell me what you want and I can probably make it for you. Belts, wallets, purses, koozies, coffee cup sleeves, plague masks, and even toilet seat toppers. So please check out my work at my website www.ricsleather.com or on Ric’s Leather & Engraving. I look forward to seeing folks at “First Sunday” once it is allowed to happen. Stay safe and stay happy.   Save

Reclamation is a retail shop specializing in vintage, antiques, collectibles, gifts, used and upcycled furniture. We specialize in the resale of gently used, vintage, and redesigned furniture and home accessories. The selection in our store is both diverse and unique. Each item is handpicked for quality, beauty, and the ability to transition into current style trends. We work hard to find our merchandise, transport it, repair it, clean it, sometimes reinvent it, and then bring it all together in a pleasant environment to make the shopping easy for our customers. You will quickly discover how easy and satisfying it can be to have a sustainable home. Prices are always significantly less than traditional furniture stores. Good design is timeless. It persists through the generations and it connects them. At Reclamation, we believe it should be preserved and enjoyed instead of being banished to the landfill. We’d love to hear from you.
