For anyone looking for leather for armor, I found this guy on craigslist that seems to be offering good deals locally for scrap leather for about $4 per lb or $3.5 for veg tanned bellies per square foot. Really need to check this out further. indianapolis.craigslist.org/bfs/3710799946.html
While we are here, has anyone been to Landwerlen leather company in Indianapolis? they don't have a website but local.yahoo has some pretty good reviews about it and about their deals. I just don't know the specifics of the deals. They apparently sell scrap leather too.
