Specialty Shops Still Offer Repairs on Main Street, Catskill

January 26, 2016

Untitled-1.pngIn our 21st century, ‘Throw-Away’ consumer society, it’s refreshing to know that you can still get quality repairs done when one of your favorite things needs attention!  In Catskill, two of these businesses are literally next door to each other on Main Street.

Untitled-2.pngPeople have been bringing their Shoes, Boots, Purses and Bags to Roger Bond for the past 64 years.  His Red Hook Shoe Repair shop has been in Catskill since 1980.  Roger got his start in Saugerties as a young man, doing custom work for the Montano’s family shoe store. In earlier years, he owned and operated four shops at the same time - in Catskill, Saugerties, Red Hook, and Hudson.  Thankfully, when Roger scaled back, he chose to keep the Catskill shop running. His many satisfied customers are quick to let you know that he does quality work at fair prices, and had added years of life to their leather goods from shoes and boots to designer bags.   

Untitled-3.pngJust up the street, across the entrance to the Municipal Parking Lot, is the place to take your most valued rings, necklaces, pendants, charms and watches.  Heidi Vedder has been at 380 Main Street for over 16 years now, providing not only a lovely selection of merchandise, but partnering with some exceptional jewelers who make repairs that last.  From stone-setting, to soldering, to ring re-sizing, Unique Jewelry & Gifts is the place you know the work will be done right.
