About the Maker

Located in downtown Norfolk, Nebraska, Golden West Supply Co is owned and managed by Austin Casselberry, owner of Golden West Handcrafts, LLC. 

Austin Casselberry was born and raised in Northeast Nebraska and fell in love with leatherwork initially as a meditative prayer exercise where he would practice “Ora et Labora” (Prayer and Work) which is a time of silent prayer spent listening and enjoying the company of Jesus, sort of like St. Joseph might have in the carpenter shop. He is incredibly excited to occupy a space in the heart of Norfolk to offer a unique retail experience for customers to get to customize their own every day carry goods such as wallets, bags, belts and more. In addition to the goods that are handcrafted right in the store, Austin also has curated some great brands that represent and reflect the values that are really lacking today:

  • Ethically made, with preference to brands that are American Made. 
  • Quality products made of quality materials. 
  • Glorify God. 

When Austin is not in the Leathershop, he is either serving as a barista at Fenders Coffee Bar or coaching the local high school speech team.
