Yay! The saddle for the Hillborne is now laced and back where it belongs. I'm so happy. I feel as though Tony's been out of commission forever, and I know it's been at least a month now between waiting for the handlebars for so many weeks and trying to find someone who could punch holes and lace the saddle up for me.
Brick House Leather Co is definitely a place to check out. The owner is super sweet, and was able to help me out right at that moment. As an added bonus, she's also a seamstress, and is willing to do minor things such as hemming, adding zippers, or even buttons to garments. As a shorter person, I was happy to hear this, and will definitely be visiting again. I was also interested that the owner makes her own leather conditioner that is organic (unlike many that are made from petroleum by-products), and while I haven't yet tried it, when mine runs out, I'm anxious to give it a try.
