4-16-21 Llama Hardware is now owned by Lisa Labendeira of Madera CA! It has been a great run and I am thankful to have had the chance to be a part of Llama Hardware. Please welcome Lisa to the fold and know that she will continue to produce Flaming Star Llama Gear with the same pride in workmanship and quality as they have always been done.
9-25-18 I seem to have a terrible time keeping updates on the web page! Since the last update, nearly a year ago, we have seen the orders for pack systems and blankets increase and harness sales drop a small amount. Still, it's keeping me busier than ever and there are no complaints there!
10-4-17 Time flies when you are having fun! Life has been busy over the last year and I get sidetracked making things for all my customers and forget to write updates here... Working on changing that!
2-4-16 At a time where orders are filled, or waiting to ship, and I'm doing a bit of leather work. Pommel bags and Tapadero's to start. Will see where the R&D leads for other items.
12-24-15 A full order board has kept me from updating things here on my website the way I want, for that I thank each and everyone of you that made an order! May you have the best holiday possible to match your religion or lifestyle. From me to you, Merry Christmas!
11-17-15 New items soon to be added to the web site are Colored neck bands. Now available in Safety Orange, Purple, Royal Blue, Navy, Forest Green, and Black with reflective strips. Bring attention to your llamas during parades, walks around town, or anywhere you might go. Photos coming soon!
10-6-15 Summer has been a whirl wind event! Fall is now in the air and I'm working to fill orders for coats, halters, and doing some R&D on gear for pack goats! Look for additions to the product line in the near future! AND we now have Purple back in stock for packs and are again making the Safety Orange reflective collars for hunting season.
