It is absolutely incredible that at SH Frank & Co- House Leather has been in San Francisco since 1895! Usually they have a rather strict no-access-to-the-backroom policy, but when I mentioned I would like to take photos to post, they let me wander around! Seeing the dramatic two-story high stacks of leather and hardware made me realize that the shops in Harry Pottter are not actually that far of a stretch of the imagination.
I bought a gorgeous half-hide of heavy black leather. Keep an eye out, I’ll post about whatever I make with it. I also got 10 two-inch belt keepers for the bondage belts I’m making.
