Hi Kelly, I received my chinks, and I am really happy with the product. Also I want to thank you for your help and advice. Regards, John (Bethlehem, South Africa) (12-21-08)
It all started with leather repair work in the basement of Bob Schildís parents.† He made belts, wallets, purses, and etc. to make extra money during the start of his rodeo career.† He went on to win the 1954 Intercollegiate Championships in both Saddlebronc and Bareback riding.† He was also twice runner-up for the Intercollegiate All-Around Title in 1953 and 1954.
After graduation in 1954 he began a successful full-time professional rodeo career. During this time he carried a sewing machine and some supplies in his camper while traveling to rodeos and made rodeo chaps and other items for extra income.
He continued with his professional rodeo career until he and his wife Gay opened B Bar B Leather in a tiny shop located on Main street in Blackfoot, Idaho in 1961.†† He continued to compete part-time in rodeo until 1969 to support the new business and new family.† Bob and his wife Gay operated and grew the store with a commitment to quality and values which they taught to their three sons.† They turned-over the business to their sonís Jeff, Shawn, and Kelly in 1994.
B Bar B Wholesale was started in 1996 to help increase business to a level that could support all three brothers and provide retirement for their parents.† B Bar B Wholesale has followed the same commitment to quality and values as shown by Bob and Gay during their 33 years of hard work and care for their customers.† We hope to continue that level of service and will do our best to provide the best value and service for our customers.† We understand that without you, our very important customers, we would not have a successful business.
