I Met Peter Smathers Carter From Smathers and Bronson

Yes, at the Tau Beta Market in Grosse Pointe, I had the pleasure of meeting or my preppy celebrity sighting was ....

Peter Smathers Carter from Smathers and Branson!

His darling wife was selling jewelry next to his display of his great belts, key fobs and few new items. I told him that my husband was a fan of his belts and that he has been eyeing the golf course version below. Also, an important fact that differentiates Smathers & Branson belts from the competition: the needlepoint on these belts is finer or more loops per square inch. I have given up the dream of making needlepoint belts for my boys, so this is where I have turned....

He has a few new products coming out that I will share with you at a later time.

How exciting! These belts are lovely and so very well made. That is interesting they have more stiches per inch, I am guesing the use pearl cotton? I still need to finish my dad's belt, but seeing as it has taken me ages next time I am just going to buy one!

Did you happen to see my post about the belt? I purchased the golf belt you pictured at a thrift store for $12. My son looks very handsome in it! It's such beautiful needlepoint too!
