Stidham Outfitters Supply & Custom Leather

 Johnson City (pop. 1,959)

While Seth Stidham carves, tools, and sews custom belts, wallets, purses, catchalls, and other works of leather art in his workshop, his other half, Jasmin Arpin, stocks the retail side of their enterprise with apparel, jewelry, and home goods from like-minded indie brands. (Meanwhile, Pearl, the sweet shop dog, dutifully poses for social-media snaps.)

Nearby: Echo, for original art and mid-century antiques, and Pieces of the Past, for better-with-age architectural salvage
