We were born ski bums. Our lives revolve around the mountains. Our passion for winter sports has led us on some wonderful adventures in search of powder. We also found antique skis, snowshoes, vintage snowboards, antique sleds and vintage climbing mountaineering gear.
At some point in this journey, our love for these beautiful pieces led us to importing antiques sourced from over 15 different countries. We've added a wood shop that is dedicated to crafting with traditional techniques - our unique ski furniture and ski decor pieces that we can't find in the "wild vintage yonder". We love finding unique items that will fit in Alpine and Rustic style homes.

Included are the strip(s) of BROWN leather and 4 drywall screws for a simple yet elegant do-it-yourself installation. Our leather mounting kit is a great way to hang your vintage or antique skis. It not only looks great, but really works well to secure your skis to the wall. Please refer to our blog post for detailed directions on how to hang your antique skis. Leather strips vary slightly in color and patina. Each piece of leather is hand cut from durable new buffalo leather. Sends via USPS. *Black Leather available upon request.
Ski Mounting Kits:
Come with 2 - 7" straps of leather, and 4 black drywall screws.
HOW Many "Kits" do you need?
Most people like the security of hanging skis with a strip at the tip and tail of each ski. This is also a good way to CROSS your skis in an X. However, Many skis can be hung by using 1 strip - right behind the binding (especially if hanging vertically).
Ski Pole Mounting Kits:
Come with 1 - 4" strap of leather, and 2 drywall screws.
1. Hold skis in desired place
2. Screw leather strip to wall
3. Place ski "inside" leather strip and "trap" the ski to the wall by screwing another screw into the leather as close as possible to the ski - keeping the ski snug to the wall.
4. Repeat at the tip and tail of each ski.

A wonderful little Swiss bell with its original leather strap and buckle. Bells like this adorned cows, sheep, horses and the like helping the farmer both identify and locate his animals. This bell is in wonderful antique condition and has been preserved with a leather conditioner and a light cleaning of the brass. If desired this bell would polish to a mirror finish however we leave that decision to the next owner. We tend to fall in love with the patina a bell develops over time.
This Bell comes to us from the Burbank collection.
