I can’t say enough good things about this shop! My husband and I made the shop just before it closed. I loved one particular style bag, however asked if there were other colours available. After checking in the back he told me there wasn’t, however he was in the process of making more in another colour. He asked me to wait 10 minutes and he would finish one for me. To say I was overjoyed is an understatement! Wonderful customer service and the best part is I was able to watch him work his magic and make MY special bag! A totally amazing experience.
Shop owner was super sweet and friendly. I was indecisive and took a long time picking and he was ever so patient, helping me view everything. The items in the shop, from what I could tell, was very high quality and very well made. Fairly simplistic but clean designs. Prices were pretty low, so the value is great. I could see the owner's workshop in the back and he even showed me the full pieces of leather he works with. His taste in music was also up my stream - I love a bit of metal in the background as I shop. I just felt the shop was so genuine and wholesome. Very pleased and would recommend this shop to everyone.
