About Us


Chichester was started in 1992 by Paul Crosby as a part-time hobby business exporting Native American arts and crafts from Canada to the United States.  Throughout the years, we have grown into an importer, exporter, distributor, and retailer with offices in both Canada and the United States.  Our primary market is the United States, where we distribute an array of products from our warehouse in Niagara Falls, New York.  Our main product lines include the following items: 

Rabbit Skins, Furs, Hides, Skins, and Antlers

Craft Supplies, Beads, Buttons, Shells, and Driftwood

Leather Bags, Fur Hats, and Fur Accessories

Cow Skins, Sheep Skin Rugs, and Fur Rugs and Pillows

Trading Post Goods

Dinosaur Products

Curiosities and Exotica

Some of our customers include museums, gift shops, trading posts, theme parks, catalog retailers, manufacturers, crafts people, museum exhibit suppliers, interior designers, movie set decorators, costume designers, and collectors. We have engaged in drop shipments around the world, for example, we have shipped from Morocco to Slovaki, Finland to China, Spain to Brazil and Mexico, South Africa to Canada, and Canada to China, etc. We ship everything from a small box with a single item to 40-foot ocean containers.
