About Us

     Park Avenue Mercantile was originally opened  as Leather Works, an authorized sales center for Leather Factory, on Utah Avenue in Idaho Falls during the spring of 1999.  As time progressed and the economy changed, the store went through several changes and moved twice, ending up at the current location which was purchased in 2011.  Bob and Rachel Zaladonis are still the owners and are always happy to hear your suggestions.


     Since originally opening as a leather craft store, we have gradually added industrial sewing machine sales and service, outdoor fabric, webbing,  nylon hardware and industrial type sewing notions.  In December of 2013 we started a new facade remodel to make the buildng more serviceable and updated the entry ways to meet current building and ADA codes.  On January 7th 2014 we acquired L&D Brewshop from Leon and moved its operation into the store.


     With this new venture added to the store, we now offer:


  •     Industrial sewing machine sales and service. We are the authorized sales and service centers for Artisan Sewing Supply, Consew, EconoSew and PFAFF Industrial.


  •    Sewing supplies: We have many options for outdoor or special projects, including 1000 denier Cordura, 900 denier waterprof polyester fabric, webbing, plastic, nylon, and metal hardware and findings, as well as industrial style sewing notions.


  •    Leather working supplies: As an authorized sales center for Tandy Leather Factory we stock most popular dyes, finishes, and project kits.  In addition to this we are the local stocking distributrs for Thoroughbred Leather, C.S. Osborne Tools, Garland Mallet, Silver Creek Leather, Leather Cord USA, Fiebings Dyes and Finishes, and Petronios adhesives.


  •    Beer brewing supplies: We offer 11 base malts in bulk, liquid and dry extract form, and we stock over 40 specialized body flavor and roasted barleys. We offer free grain milling with the purchase of grains. There are over 50 types of hops in stock, and dozens of yeasts to complete your beer. We stock and represent BrewCraft USA, FermenTap, KegConnection, Wyeast, Fermentis, and Mangrove Jacks. We also offer a great variety of bottling and kegging items, from basic beer bottles to and tubing.


  •    Wine making: We carry many ready to assemble kits as well as all of your fermentaion, sanitation, bottling, chemical testing, and adjusting supplies.


  •    Cheese making supplies: New England Cheese Making Supply products are have become essential to the home cheese-maker.  We stock books, kits, cheese molds (for forming the cheese), cultures, rennets, and innoculation bacteria as well as cloths, presses and cheese wax.


  •    Distillation supplies and equipment: We carry rye malt, flaked corn and several specialized high attenuation yeasts for distillation.  We can also special order the Turbo Distillation system for those wishing to craft their own ethanol for alternative fuel.


     Since leather craft supplies are only one of the several crafts we serve and since we will be purchasing new signage for the building after the remodel we felt this was the time to change the name of the business. 


  Thank you for your patronage and support.
