    My Aunt Pearl did leathercraft. She even let me try my hand at it. I never knew it was a he-man hobby. I remember in the 50’s visiting a Tandy store with her to get supplies. Great smell. Tandy is still around.

    Tandy owned Radio Shack for the longest time.

    I thought crushing the minions of Skeletor was the He-Man hobby.
