or the Leather Factory.
This was really convenient for me, but times change and so do inventories. The kangaroo lace was first to go. It was brought back eventually but only in one width. That wasn't sufficient for my purposes, so I started buying it from Melody Snow instead. Sheepskin skiver was next on the chopping block. Fortunately, a group of enterprising hobbyists organized a large special order, the results of which can be purchased from Alison Bennish on eBay. Yesterday, I made the sad discovery that Tandy/Leather Factory has discontined petite tooling calf.
Luckily, the Denver store still had two beautiful hides in stock. I bought them both, and that should time me over for a long, long time. Still, I'm pretty bummed that I won't be able to hand select my hides in the future.
