M.L. Leddy’s
Custom handmade boot makers abound in Fort Worth, but one has established itself as a legend in the industry. M.L. Leddy opened his namesake saddle and boot shop in Brady, Texas, in 1922 before moving to San Angelo in 1936, then opening the famed Stockyards location in 1941. Now fourth-generation family members work in the business and continue to produce the finest in custom boots for cowboys and presidents alike.

A true “gem” of a locally-owned business in every sense, Kubes Jewelers has been home to three generations of jewelry experts. Joseph Edward Kubes became one of the first certified gemologists in Texas in 1955. He opened Kubes more than 60 years ago, and today the business is run by several family members, including sons Rick and Tony and grandson Brent, also all certified gemologists.
