NOTICE: Some scam artists are using my leathergoodsconnection email as the return email on their spam. I don't send unsolicited emails. Don't reply to them and don't provide any information.
Email from me will have your order number in the subject. I only send email if there is a question about your order and to notify you when your order has been shipped.
Contact me through links on this web site. Be sure there is something relevent in the subject line. I don't open emails that say "Hi" or "CAN YOU HELP ME?" or Re: or Fwd unless I remember a previous email and the sender isn't something like "XKMU-[vTX]"
Warning- If you are using a wide screen monitor images may appear more elongated than they really are if your resolution isn't set properly.
If you have read all the info and still have a question...
Please, 7:00am - 7:00pm EST only.
I don't have an aggravating menu or disclamers about recording the conversation for quality control purposes, nor do I keep you on hold (while a line opens up to Pakistan) to share my favorite radio program with you while interupting oldies to make gratuitious statements about what your business means to us, I just say ...Hello? If you have to leave a meassage include your email address (say it slow and spell it). I do not play phone tag, I email reply, all I ever get when I call is a recording, or your wife.
There is a new "simplified" one page checkout. We offer Master Card, Visa, Discover, and Paypal as payment options. Be sure your PayPal account is set up to meet the total amount of your purchase. After making the PayPal payment be sure to "Continue" to return to LGC website to complete the transaction.
The issue with shipping and billing phone numbers has been resolved with a default number that you can leave to protect your privacy, or can change to your phone number if you feel I may need to contact you by phone. It would be an extreme case if I did that. Be sure to provide your correct email address and allow my email past your spam blocker otherwise you won't get your order confirmation, or shipping notification.
OR, E-Mail ( preferred, I personally answer all e-mails promptly )See email link below, I can't make this stuff and be on the phone too. I check the e-mails from time to time during the day as my schedule allows and if I hear the computer beep. My refresh time on e-mail is 10 min.
This means, stay on line, you may get an answer in about 5 - 15 minutes if I am in the shop and hear the beep. Check for a return email the day after placing an order.
I do not accept phone orders. With phone orders I have no proof that you actually placed an order...what it was for...or that you approved the price and what you ordered isn't on my computer for book keeping purposes, or there when you call back in two years and expect me to know what size you wear. It wastes my time doing what I have paid for a computer to do and is way below my pay scale... I don't want to hang on the phone while you go to the garage to find a tape measure to measure the belt you are wearing :>) Time spent doing that delays someone else's order.
I am really surprised that rather than trust a secure ordering system, people would rather call up someone they never met, and give their credit card info to whoever answers the phone.
If you do phone to ask a question, use a land line. Those cell phones are way worse than the WWII radios I worked on in the Navy that were made before I was born. Worse than an Edison Phonograph. Even... Worse than 8 tracks... I had a woman call asking questions about ordering a belt, I read the answers to her off the web site page. I told her all the info was there on the web site. She said, "Oh, I don't read all that STUFF". Well, the price these products are offered for, is based on you reading all that STUFF and placing your order online, instead of calling and asking me to read it to you.
If you supply an incorrect billing address, the processing company charges me a higher percentage to process your order (which averages $4.00 per order when all is said and done),and flags your order for me to spend extra time on deciding if I should process or cancel your order.
If you do not supply the three digit code on the back of your card... which is there for internet orders, so we know you actually have the card... (which protects you), the processing company charges me a higher precentage to process your order and flags your order for me to spend extra time on deciding if I should process or cancel your order.
If you don't type in your email address correctly you won't get your order confirmation... And I won't be able to contact you about your order if there is a problem, and I won't be able to email you to tell you that your order has been shipped.
If you have spam protection which trashes my emails... it's the same as if you typed in your email address incorrectly... except I won't know you didn't get my emails...
In the two cases above customers eventually call me on the phone... wasting my time asking me if I got their order or not... implying that I am incompetent... which is more and more likely.. but not in the above cases.
The newest wrinkle is the instant online banking info some people are hooked up to. Here's the deal... when you place your order the system places an authorization in order to check billing address, card code, and zip code. (The same as when you check into a hotel) If you email me later to add something to your order, or, say you type in a monogram but don't select monogram... I email you and ask what's the deal??? you say ok charge me for it (Shucks, didn't work). So I change the price and process it. Now the authorization doesn't match the amount so the authorization stays for a few days. You email me and accuse me of charging you twice, as if I am the one trying to get away with something. I have to email you and say check it again and you will see that there is only one charge, the other is only the authorization... Before the I pod you never knew, because the authorization wasn't on your statement, if you ever actually read your statement. So when you check your account on the internet... ACTUALLY READ IT, before you panic and email me.
You can mail an order to LGC, 572 Cedar Ave., Demorest GA 30535. Include your contact info, card info and e-mail address. Best method is to select your items and put them in the shopping cart. The new one page checkout will provide all the information I will need. Fill out the form, print out a copy and send it with your payment.
Yeah, you can't trust those online people... and that online stuff... better to send your order in, Pony Express. What if your order and card number gets stolen out of my mail box by a drug addict... can't be too careful... better to drive up here and place your order on Christmas day, like that guy from Atlanta... said, "Happy Holidays, and a prosperous new year"... never would have found me it it weren't for the GPS his wife gave him for Christmas... just testing it out...
Look at it from where I am, think about how many scammers have me in their sights because they know where I am. I don't have a free hotmail address that I change every week, I have a big investment in being dependable. Read "Customer Comments"... I couldn't make that stuff up. If I could, I'd be able to sell my novel and retire :>)
During check out you can choose Priority or First Class U.S. Postal Service shipping but it will go Priority Mail with tracking. The system charges shipping and handling for orders based on the price of the order. Really small orders can sometimes be shipped First Class for less but there is no tracking. For most orders I can't risk it and have to have tracking. The tracking number is now printed on my postal reciept. It is not in the computer system. If you call or email to check tracking I have to look for it on that days reciept so it takes a little while to find. I haven't been able to leave paper behind yet. This is the best I can do with the system I have.
Priority Mail delivery seems to be 3 days anywhere in the U.S.A. Priority Mail service is not available outside the U.S. Foreign orders will be shipped Air Mail with the customer taking responsibility for delivery. Email me for instructions.
All orders placed on-line are shipped the next working day if in stock. Most items are not in stock because of the many options. These items really are made just for you according to your choices.

All orders are made and shipped in the order that they are received unless there is a material supply delay, or you have not provided necessary information. Your order will not be held up if there is a delay with an earlier order.
