The BEST ~ Christmas Gift Ideas



I was doing a show recently and this well dressed southern woman said she was looking for a gift for her new boyfriend, who happened to be a judge...  I knew instantly she needed our Whiskey Barrel Fly Swatter (a perfect gift for a judge... #11 on the list below).  As I was telling her that the handle was made from the staves of a Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrel she unexpectedly started licking the handle… (this was a to-do lady… not someone you’d expect to lick the handle of a flyswatter!)   

 Her best friend who was standing close by yelled out, "Don't Lick it Linda!" 

Linda replied, "But, I've got to get my JACK somehow!"  The entire area erupted in laughter.  

This has become a classic story at Holtz Leather and we share it often.

Follow the Holtz Family - We're Crazy!


It’s hard to believe that in such a short time (6 years) our small family business has grown from the infancy in our basement to nearly 70 people, 2 retail stores, with our own manufacturing facility (made in Huntsville, Alabama y’all) crafting products of leather, wood, pottery, and candles which we ship all over the United States.  We’ve made products for heads of state, The Today Show, celebrities like Jimmy Fallon, fortune 500 companies, even the former Vice President of the United States… 

We were even offered an opportunity to have our own reality TV show (which we turned down).
