If you’re a leather lover with a bicycle, boy do I have something for you. Walnut Studiolo makes lovely leather wraps for your bike handlebars. Imagine how soft and patina-ed they will become over time!
So, I’ve been doing a lot of research on “barefoot running.” I recently ordered a pair of Soft Star RunAmoc Running Shoes. And I use “running shoes” loosely. They are literally a soft leather moccasin with a 2mm Vibram rubber sole. Pix of the shoes and a little video follow. THEY ARE SO COMFY!
Found these bags at a cute little boutique in Astoria, called KrisTees.
What drew me to this bag was the horn. It doubles as a bag fastener, AND a self-defense weapon against muggers!
This bag is made by a local design group called Divine Tribe. It looks like they do have a few styles that they make multiples of, but the ones that are most interesting are one of a kinds like the bag below.

I also saw this one on their website. It’s HAIR! how exotic though.
