I've left my babies, that is, my 17 year old elephant skin boots, at a little shop on the east edge of Hot Springs, "Stocktons Shoe Boot and Saddle". The owner is a stocky guy of Hispanic descent that seems decent enough but beware, he can talk YOUR EARS OFF!!!!! He has some relation to the owners of the long-gone "Arky-House" store.

He has quite a backlog, but my boots should be ready today or tomorrow. I've used him several times for sewing or moving patches on my colors (vest) and minor leather repairs.

I'll let y'all know how the boots turn out.

He did tell me that one pair of my boots would cost about 2/3 as much to re-sole as to replace once.
