ZUMBROTA — Dan Stussy of rural Zumbrota retired in 2004 and planned to repair old buggies and wagons as a pastime. Instead, he found himself creating a variety of leather items for his family and friends.
Years before that, he had acquired skills in leather crafting after he and his wife, Barb, bought a Shetland pony for their daughter. He said of his hobby, “It went from there.”
