1786 Leather Goods, Yew Tree Barn | Best of England Travel Guides

1786 Leather Goods, Yew Tree Barn

1787 Leather Goods is housed alongside multiple creative artisans in the wonderful Yew Tree Barn. Chris McGrath began collecting leather after salvaging hides off of a shipwreck dating 1786. His shop shows his collected items and primarily sells vintage luggage of all types; handbags, travelling cases, suitcases and Gladstone bags can all be found.

As well as vintage luggage, there is also a display of uniforms and clothing accessories. The shop is certainly interesting to browse through as it glimpses the past uses of leather and is a bit like a museum. The shop is unique and worth seeking out.
