  • The Beggar’s Pouch’s Garden

    Way back in late May the crew spent a day planting posies and getting the shop flower beds and pots ready for Memorial Day weekend. It's been about 8 weeks and the flowers are really coming into their own! I really get a kick when I see a group of folks stop and pose for pictures with our flowers! A sweet lady who works close by told me she likes to sit on our benches on her way to work in the morning and enjoy the plantings. Nice to have a little fun in the summer!!!!

  • A history of Belts at the Beggars Pouch

    I work at The Beggars Pouch and I make belts. Honest to goodness quality leather belts. Way back when, in July of 1972 I went to an arts and craft show with my girlfriend. Her father was exhibiting some paintings at The Norwich Rose Arts Festival. I didn't care too much for the fine art but I was really captivated by the crafts. There were silver and gold smiths, folks doing stained glass, wood carvers and potters, a whole lot of potters. But it was the guys doing leather that really grabbed me! I remember a long hair sitting on a stitching pony hand stitching wallets and another guy lacing up hard leather handbags. And then I stumbled upon another dude tapping designs into leather belts. I had never seen this done and I was mesmerized!!!! In fact, I bought a belt from this guy. Probably paid all of $8 ...

  • The Smell of Leather

    I was cutting a few hides into belts this morning, and a lady wandered into the Annex. She said she didn't need any help; she just came in to smell the leather! I was over in the front shop this afternoon and a guy came in and looked around. He said he came in because he loved the smell of leather, that he could smell it out on the sidewalk in front of the shop! This is something we hear from our customers all the time. There is no mistaking the rich aroma that is so unique to real honest to goodness leather. Our shop is full of leather products both that we make and the lines of goods that we carry. And then there are the thousands of feet of leather hides we have stashed all over the place. If you add them all together we certainly do create ...

  • Memorial Day weekend

    Memorial Day weekend is the kick off to busier times in the Mt Washington Valley. It also means that it's time to get planting here in the north country and The Beggars Pouch crew spent 2 days playing in the dirt, getting spruced up for the summer. Every year some folks will ask us who does our plantings and cares for the flowers. When we tell them that we do it all, they look at us in disbelief. So here are some before, during and after photos to show that we really do get our hands dirty!!!!! Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!!
