I have a sizeable belt collection. Some of them didn’t even reach around my waist anymore, until recently when I’ve shed some unwanted pounds. I was happy I’d hung onto them then. Once again, some of these wearable collectibles have stories to tell. A few of them were made by my brother, who still does gorgeous leatherwork to this day. A couple of belts were my mom’s, including a black velvet beauty and a prized cowhide – part of my valuable vintage collection. Valuable to me that is. As I have them all on this handy belt hoop and hung in the back of my closet, I will likely hang on to them for now. You never know when you might need a wide orange belt, right?
