So I wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent me emails and messages with words of kindness and encouragement, it means so much to me. Things have been going pretty well so far, hopefully I can keep up the positive spirit and put this whole thing behind me.
As for work, I’ve been pretty much one schedule-ish. Some things are backed up out of my control right now. I’m back ordered on Chromexcel horsehide until (hopefully) next week (was supposed to be last week, so we’ll see). Feel free to place orders though, just be aware it will be a few weeks. Otherwise, wait times are pretty much back to normal, two or so weeks. Kind of depends on when you order, as every two weeks I have chemo and it takes 5 or 6 days to get back to work.
I have been trying to use up leather I have around the shop to make things a little more tidy, so I have a few things I am offering to not only clear out the last of some very popular leather I have, but to offer what I think is a great deal on some amazing leathers.
First is some golden tan Horween Dublin. This is a fully vegetable tanned leather that has been heavily waxed and has a very dramatic pull-up effect that gives it an amazing rustic look. There is no leather I have ever seen quite like this, as you can see from the photo, each wallet is completely different, yet cut from the same hide.
I have 5 or 6 on hand in the Golden tan Dublin, going for $65 a piece (+$5 shipping to US), the interior includes 4 card slots and a full sized bill slot, and is constructed from natural vegetable tanned cowhide.
This is a wallet that will break in to look absolutely ludicrous. Get one while they last!
Next leather is another sort of golden Horween Veg tan, I’m going to call this one “Wheat” colored. Very similar to the above leather, except not as dramatic a pull up and a bit firmer. It is awesome. It is waxy, but has more of a matte finish to it.
Same price and set up as the one above, $65 + $5 in USA, four slots, etc. Have about 5 or so of these. Email me!
Last one is a dark brown in a similar tannage to the Golden Dublin, although the pull-up is not as dramatic. It is a nice smooth waxy veg tan with a little tiny bit of shine too it. Nice and deep brown color.
Again, same as the others, 4 slots, $65 + $5. I have probably the same 5 or 6, maybe a few more of this style.
These really are the three of the most beautiful leathers I have ever seen. Horween’s vegetable tanning program is absurd, and these leathers are the proof of that.
Shoot me an email if you are interested at JAWLeatherGoods@gmail.com, I’ll add these to the online shop at JAWLeatherGoods.com later today.
Again, thank you for all the support, it means a lot. Help me get rid of these wallets and get through my cancer treatments!
