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.
