Bootmaker Round-Up 2006

The 18th Annual Boot & Saddlemakers Trade Show Round Up will be held October 6-7, 2006 in Wichita Falls, Texas.

I look forward to the Round Up every year.

Here’s the informal schedule…Friday morning, you get a quick nod, hug, or handshake from even your closest friends… ‘cuz everybody is staring down at the asphalt searching around for the good swapmeet stuff. After 3pm on Saturday everybody’s too busy looking for last minute deals on leather, no time for long goodbyes.

Ahhh… but in all that time in-between, there’s plenty of room for drinking coffee and catching up with all the folks you haven’t seen since last year.

For more information visit To pre-register contact Kathy Kimmel at, or (325) 356-3197.

(Bootmakers will want to keep their eye on the for more updates and photos.)

Here’s some 2005 photos:

Thirty-two saddles were entered in this year’s contest.
