Saddleback Leather Has Competition October 8, 2011

Posted by Mitchell in Art, Leather, Yorling.

Y’all know how I lubme some SBL, but I just found out today that this place exists: Renaissance Art via Twitter. The guy that runs the place just started following me and so I checked out his site. Wow.  That’s some NICE looking leather stuff right there. Dammit. I’m already not looking forward to my credit card bill. His stuff isn’t quite in direct head-to-head competition as RA seems to focus more on the book binder aspect and SBL is definitely heavier into the bag side of things. But still, check out THIS baby: Adventurers Satchel. That’s just flat-out gorgeous right there. And it’s definitely in the SBL tradition of no snaps or zippers & crap like that. Oh man, there’s just too much good stuff there. I’m torn. Should I get the artist’s Sketchbook or perhaps go with the refillable Journal? They both use Arches paper. The journal has pocketses too! Oh hell, who am I kidding? I’ll certainly wind up getting one of each. Ooo! and the have end-papers! Check out the end-paper options. Double-plus classy. Oh yeah, this place is DEFINITELY going into the Cool Places list. Happy shopping! Christmas is just around the corner!

I got two of them, the sketchbook and a smaller re-fill journal. They’re absolutely fabulous.
