Where form function and beauty come together .

We all have stuff , our houses are full of it , and l am on a quest to reduce what l do have , and the things that l want to surround myself with l want to be pieces of art in there own right and be of good quality that will stand the test of time , and l am sure there are others out there that share my view , nothing is to trivial or extravagant , put up a request and lets see if anyone can help out with options .

I'm one of those craftsman or at least strive to. Everytime I see something I like, more often an antique, I redesign myself with a little twist to make an original. I love leather products and will be posting more of my own soon. Ultimate goal is in the next 5-10 yrs after I retire from the USMC is to provide people with beautiful one of kind furniture and leather goods! Brian I think you and I have an eye and appreciation for the same things look forward to seeing more of your awesome finds!

Brian this group is perfect! I'm glad I'm not the only person out there that loves and appreciates quality handmade craftsmanship. Things I carry on a normal day, 96 yr. old Parker mechanical pen, 70 yr old Parker 51 fountain pen, Case XX pocket knife, handmade coin pouch from latigo leather that will last several lifetimes, a turquoise ring made by a Zuni Indian, handmade bandana made from vintage 100% cloth. The list goes on and on,  I can't go to many days without stopping by an antique store and finding that can't live without accessory or trinket that reminds me when things were made with pride!
