i contacted the folks who made my wallet, which i bought seven(!) years ago for a repair. they said they could repair, but offered to send me a new one.
i would so much rather get the stitching repaired and keep this one out of the landfill. i so rarely buy leather, but when i do, i go in with the plan of never having to buy a brand new one.
shout out to https://www.shophawksanddoves.com for making long-lasting products. :)
HALLELUJAH! the airline contacted corey to let him know they found the wallet. all the credit cards are worthless, but i also had my insurance card and some local bar cards in there. i won’t have to get a whole new wallet!!!
