Mark F.: Hey there… you taking photos of all the labels?
Me: Uh, yeah …right. Yep. Sure am!
(Many of the photos are courtesy of LDPNDP, one of my favorite eBay sellers.)
Factory-made? Custom made? Take a peek inside the secret language of cowboy boot labels, signature stitches and inking. I’ve posted a bunch of photos of cowboy boot labels and signature stitches on Flickr. I’m hoping it’s a help to boot collectors and a tribute to makers.

This weekend is 16th annual High Noon Auction. This event has evolved into the country’s largest and most recognizable show and sale of Western Americana antique, fine art & memorabilia. This is no fleamarket…we are talking here about tablecloths and track lighting.
Even if you can’t make it to Phoenix by Saturday, you don’t have to miss any of the excitement. Here are the cowboy boots up for bid …and you can now bid live & online through your eBay account!
