So exited today. We designed and made a custom @roguejourneymen@surlybikes Packrat bag for Nic’s Packrat. He picked up his new bike and the custom fitted bag today. A couple weeks ago Nic had stopped at the Outpost just in case we had Surly Bikes. We have lots and lots. The conversation swirled and the bike/rack/ Rogue Journeymen Bag combined project evolved for a Packrat. Beer, surf gear, the basics. We are so stoked about this. There are 4 clips for the bag and the Surly 24 Pack Rack so he can carry lots of stuff with stability in the canvas bag. We used some super heavy duty @wickettandcraig leather plus best in class military canvas for a canvas bag that will last a really long time. So excited to combine our passions today. Thanks Nic for seeing the potential!!!! #surlybikes#leathercanvasbags#surlybikes#packrat#surlypackrat#canvas#leather#24pack#24packrack#surlysteel#roguejourneymen#grizzlybearhaute
#throwback to my #Italy trip, bought this book at the Balon Flea Market! Another book sample to go into my tiny #collection hehehe! According to Google translate, this 1901 book is ‘Pray! The Book of Piety of Youth’. These #publications with spongy covers are meant to convey a poshy/classy look and feel to attract more buyers, and are usually books on #religion or literature. Mine here is full bound in #calfskin with gold hot stanping on its cover, blind stamping or tooling on its squares (margins of book covers on the inside), edges are full gilt, with red and green stuck-on endbands, and a ribbon bookmark. Relatively good conditon, and vaguely making out the #fountainpen#ink dedication to someone’s nephew and godson. Measuring only 58.5 x 134mm I love it’s neat and pretty #layout, they still manage to justify all text without ugly rivers! #fleamarket#leather leatherbook #prayerbook#shopping#lifeofaconservator#whatwebuy#takemymoney
This blend is starting to make a little more sense to me. It’s mild in taste and high in nicotine, a good all day smoke for a lot of people. Not me, but it’s still a good blend despite not being for me.
