Today’s interview is with Vince Coleman, Owner and Operator of Coleman’s Haberdashery, Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In this episode Vince talks about how he turned a hobby into a business that turned a profit in the first year. Vince and I recorded this episode in April during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Vince had a great outlook about the pandemic and even though his business had been impacted he looked at this time as an opportunity to pivot and grow.
After graduating from culinary school in 2003, Vince spent a number of years in the service industry. Prior to opening Coleman’s Haberdashery, Vince was the Executive Sous Chef at a restaurant in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for nearly 10 years. His love for leather making began when he decided to make his own wallet by hand. The rest is history as his leather making hobby soon became a successful business.
