Since opening in 2017, the Broker Leather Herd is here to offer you quality boots and leather goods that are unique and trendy, well-made, and functional. We proudly demonstrate the Midwestern values of loyalty and hard work. We provide elite customer service while encouraging our daughters, friends, sisters, and customers to live by our motto:

Broker Leather is located centrally downtown in the scenic, small farming community of Decorah, Iowa. We look forward to you joining our Herd and we can't wait to graze with you.

➶ Broker Leather was named after our horse, Broker. ➴
 Broker is our 1,000+ pound babysitter of a horse.  Obviously, he's one-of-a-kind.  Exactly like this boutique. He was a fluke purchase I made off Facebook.  He is the most patient horse I've come across in my life; his only bad habit is he won't stand for being tied. I couldn't turn him down once I saw "Broker's Paycheck" on his registration papers since my husband's and daughter's names both contain "PAY". He got into a brawl with a hay bale last winter and lost an eye in the long run, but he's still the same ol' boy.
 
 
 
➴ Meet Me.  I'm Brianne, the dreamer behind Broker Leather. ➶   
 Since long before I was crowned Allamakee County Fair Queen in 2003, I dreamed of running a boutique to provide locally a selection of durable and fashionable boots.  I come from a blended family and have two dads, two moms, two brothers, and two sisters.  My brothers, sisters, and I have all been raised by our parents to be very independent individuals.  Our parents have set strong examples for us, proving that, with hard work, we can accomplish our dreams.  It is my goal to match you with your perfect pair.  If there is something you have your heart set on, but don't see it here, please message me.  I will demonstrate the Midwestern values of loyalty and hard work, and provide elite customer service to make YOUR dreams come true, too! 
 

 
➶ Meet My Family. ➴
 My husband, Payne Christian, makes my dream come true with his behind-the-scenes dedication.  He's my complete opposite and is the only one who has been able to embrace my chaos.  I come from a blended family.  My brothers, sisters, and I have been raised to be very independent individuals. Both mine and Payne's parents have set strong examples for us, proving that, with hard work, we can accomplish our dreams.  With Broker Leather, we hope to do the same for our girls, Paysen Jule, and Ryggen Embrie.
