Back in 1978, we were a young married couple with two young children and a mortgage. Bill had been laid off from Moloney Electric due to lack of work. There was an opening for a collar maker at the Harness Shop and Bill took a chance and found he was a fit. He learned the trade of collar making from the master Jack McKenzie. During the eighteen years he worked as an employee he became an excellent collar maker while also learning the art of hand crafting leather horse harness.
Bill had become an integral part of this unique business and had a strong desire to keep it going. When the opportunity arose to purchase it in 1995, we were excited to take the challenge. This has brought us many new experiences and we continue to learn new things as we grow. While we learned first hand the joys and struggles of running our own business, we contribute our success over the years to--faith, family, friends, hard work, determination and, of course, the support of our community.
