There’s always a lot to choose from, and new stock comes in every week – so don’t hesitate!  One of the most exciting options is custom-made beaded gloves and moose hide slippers. You can choose from a selection of beautifully beaded tops to adorn the glove of your choice in just the right size. Or leave your footprint and a master skin-sewer will make custom slippers just for you. Yes, shipping is available!
