Helen’s Leather Shop

Established in 1969, Helen’s Leather Shop has evolved from a hippie leather goods shop to one which also represents the finest western cowboy boots, Stetson hats, Rockmount western wear, leather coats, bags, wallets, briefcases, backpacks, gloves, and belts. We have an excellent selection of western wear for country concerts, wild west parties as well as for those who wish to horseback ride in Jackson Hole. Motorcycle speed-devils can also invest in beautiful Schott jackets, leather pants, and Frye boots. Birkenstock and Naot brands are available for the leather sandal lovers! Helen’s also provides unmatched services for leather care and leather repairs. Stop by to experience the look that feels so good!


Jessica Harkiewicz

Jessica lives on Shawmut Ave in the South End.  After many years moving around between Asia and Europe and a career in fashion PR at Theory in their Shanghai headquarters Jessica moved to Boston 4 years ago when her husband David started his Boston based law practice.  Since then she has been a stay at home mum with her 3 year old son Alexey (and 2 Italian Greyhounds Loki and Enzo).  Her interests include anything related to health, wellness and all forms of exercise.  Travel and adventures off the beaten path are always on the calendar. And for her, good food, drinks and conversations with friends old and new are what makes a city feel like home.
