Some hate it, some love it(I'm one of 'em), but all are mystified... —AlyssaFoos

Craft Service is awesome, they have a great selection of leather working hardware, supplies and tools. Whenever I want to make somebody a unique gift, I go to Craft Service to get all the things I need. The shop is a true time capsule, from kits that were discontinued in the seventies to the turn of the century mechanical calculator that prints the receipts.

Just make sure you bring cash, they don't accept cards. —JustinSchmidt

This is not a "big box" store. Your questions and interests are taken seriously, free help is offered, and all your purchases are guaranteed. I needed help caning a chair. I got an on-the-spot lesson, and materials very reasonably priced.
