BUFFALO MEDICINE - Buffalo was the major source of sustenance for indigenous cultures of the plains, giving meat for food, hides for shelter and clothing, and Spirit Medicine. The appearance of Buffalo is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe and Spirit are being honored. Buffalo signals a time of abundance, prosperity and thankfulness.The medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo Medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation, recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life.

The Buckle Guy Collection

The Buckle Guy Collection is self-explanatory. The discriminating owner of this group of vintage buckles gathered them over a period of 30-40 years, storing them in a showcase. They have never been used and are some of the finest buckles we have come across.
