{ Friday Finds } WALLETS

Friday, August 19, 2011


So Trev's wallet got stolen the other day {cue my unhappy face} by some daredevil who nabbed it out of his truck, in broad daylight, while Trev was working 20 feet away. As if we didn't have enough on our plate!  Fortunately the thief turfed the fuel cards and Trev's driver's license {which we later recovered}. Unfortunately the bugger used our Home Depot consumer card before we got around to canceling it {cue my second unhappy face}.

I suppose the only good that came out of this petty crime is that I now have a 2nd gift idea for Trev's upcoming birthday {because a salmon fishing excursion is just not enough for this non-milestone birthday}. Yup my big guy is turning 33 and this week's Friday Finds had me hunting for the perfect holy-you're-getting-old b-day present...


Canadian Etsy Shops:

Banoo from Vancouver, British Columbia makes a variety of very cool & very unique vintage inspired accessories. I doubt Trev would ever put this bad boy in his back pocket, but that won't stop me from adding it to my etsy cart for only $28 {+ $2 shipping}. The wool reminds me of my grandpa's old slippers which is probably why I love it so much. 

Edmontonian Keri V Leatherworks has a lovely collection of wallets, purses and leather cuffs. Trev's a bit 'military obsessed' - he talks about joining the reserves everytime we watch a war movie - so this leather bifold complete with a corporal badge would fo' show give me an A+ in gift giving... $45 {+ $5 shipping}.

JMB Canada operates out of Chelsea, Quebec - gotta love that "Canada" is right in their shop name. While ostrich isn't really Trev's thing, this $89 {+ $10 shipping} wallet is creamy gorgeousness. I tell ya, if I had an extra $200+ kicking around I'd be pouncing on one of their equally gorgeous leather bags. Go have a look-see yourself.


American & European {ooh-la-la} Etsy Shops:
What can I say? I'm a sucker for anything nature-inspired including this wood grain stamped leather wallet that in blue is selling at a bargain price of only $17 {+ $3 shipping}. Did I mention that monograming is absolutely free?! Say no more.

I'm all about mustaches, just not on Trevor's face. Seeing how he can't sport one {my rule}, he can at least carry money in one. It'll probably get stolen by another thieving trendsetter faster than I can say "facial hair", but this well-made wallet from Marty May Press & Stitchery shop is oh-so-cool and retails for $25 {+ $4.50 shipping}.

Carrying cash is so last year decade so why not switch it up and order this affordable $25.00 card holder from Leathermix? This shop rocks. Not only do they offer free monogramming + $3.00 shipping from Europe {how coolio is that?}, but they also sell sexy leather bracelets. Is it just me or do other women find men who wear leather accessories and apply chapstick super duper attractive? Oh it is just me... damn.


** with so many options, I need to hurry up and decide which wallet-o to get Trev-bob for his August 29th b-day. If there are any chapstick wearing available men willing to weigh in on my decision, I'm all ears {and I have a handful of single girlfriends I'd like to introduce you to}... just kidding... or am I?

Happy Friday Peeps!

I LOVE wallets - they are for sure one of my obessions, when I find a good one I buy it (usually at Winners) and then it gets stored in my wallet cupboard until I need it! LOVED today's post!
