New at Kent of Inglewood, we are very pleased to bring you new high-quality leather goods made in Alberta.
Odegard leather goods are handcrafted in Athabasca, Alberta, by Arlen and Cynthia Odegard. Arlen hand stitched his first saddle at age 12, and has been leather crafting for over 30 years. The Odegards use the toughest leather, make the tightest stitches, and hold themselves to the highest quality standards possible.
Their Dopp kits are constructed with a sturdy zipper and a folding steel frame for easy loading. Fabric lining can be removed for easy washing. Available in mahogany,black or chestnut.
The Odegard belts use two layers of beautiful saddle leather, stitched by cast-iron sewing machine, and adorned with the sturdiest buckle around. We think you'll be as impressed with these items as we are, they are truly special.

Ruffians drink whisky, and every good ruffian deserves a quality axe. We plan to enjoy both. Taste six different locally crafted whiskies and spirits from the Alberta Distillery while learning the tricks of fire-starting from our own Doug McCormick.
at Last Best: Oct 26
Doug has a lifetime of experience cutting kindling, and will show you proper chopping form, as well as his tried and true fire-starting technique. What makes a great axe? Doug will teach you all about it.
Peter-Paul of Beam-Suntory will share his wealth of knowledge on Alberta made spirits. Often overlooked, our province has many tasty spirits to be enjoyed. During this event you will taste 0.5 oz each of six local spirits, which is covered by the ticket price ($4/ 0.5oz pour).
