You might think at first that these little Gidy'Up Bookends ($140) are a little bit of a splurge just to hold up some children's books. But take a closer look and you'll find out that creator Sandy Vohr hand-makes these little treasures. She actually dyes the leather herself, cuts out her pattern, hand-stuffs each one with fiberfill and weights it down with steel shot. (That's what's inside of a shotgun shell for ya'll that never heard of it.) You can't get any more authentic western than that - which makes them totally worth the splurge!
