About Us

Skidmore’s is a small, family business that has operated out of Laramie, Wyoming since 1987.  Our products are handmade in small batches in our “batch plant” adjacent to our home. 

Skidmore's Shop

We hand label, package, and ship daily to customers all over the country.  Our business philosophy is simple; make good products that work and are safe and pleasant to use, and take care of our customers. 

Vincent and Susan

If you call Skidmore’s, you’ll either get Vince or Susan on the line. If we have our hands full, either with production or our daughter, Fiona, you’ll get our answering machine.

Just leave us a message; we’ll get back to you very quickly.  We’re happy to answer any questions, and enjoy hearing how the weather is in your neck of the woods.

Prior to the May 2007 Leather Crafters Tradeshow in Sheridan, Wyoming, we thought it would be fun to create a giant banner for the backdrop of our booth which would list all our customers!  We soon discovered that our customer base was far too large for just one banner, so we narrowed the list down to just customers with business names that included the words “saddle,” “tack,” “boots,” “leather,” “cowboy,” “western,” and “outfitters.”  This gave us two 6 1/2 foot banners with three columns each of saddle & tack shops, feed stores, western outfitters, saddle makers, shoe shops, and boot makers - over 1000 in all!  And this was just a slice of our customer list.  This exercise renewed our appreciation of our loyal customer base which has evolved almost entirely by word of mouth.  We have done virtually no advertising over the past 20 years, yet we ship daily to individuals and businesses all over the U.S. and occasionally internationally.  We think this speaks volumes about the quality and effectiveness of our products.  We’d like to say “THANK YOU!” to everyone that has passed our products on to others, or has recommended them to a customer.  Our special appreciation goes out to our local supporters in the Laramie area, and to the folks who were willing to try the product at the very beginning.  We’d also like to thank the JunkMarket gals, Sue Whitney & Ki Nassauer, who use, and regularly mention our products in Country Home and JunkMarket magazines!
