How do you make your wallets?
The wallets are all handmade. After selecting a glove or a football, I disassemble, flatten, clean and condition the leather. Then parts of the glove (or football) are cut out to be included in the
design and construction of the wallet. The leather sections are then glued, punched and hand-stitched before finishing touches are made to complete the project.
What style of wallets do you make?
Styles vary, and hopefully
one or more of them will fit your needs. I make classic bi-folds, spring clip wallets, and various versions of card holders. Some people like bigger, fatter wallets while others (like me) prefer a smaller, thinner piece that can fit conveniently in your front
pocket; some may carry lots of cash while others get by primarily with debit/credit cards....these are just a couple factors that might determine what style is best for you.
How do you choose what ball glove to use to make a wallet?
The wallets are primarily custom made, so I try to select a glove that appeals to the customer, perhaps a certain brand (such as Wilson or Rawlings), color, age or player signature model can all play a part in the design of a wallet. I have a number of
old gloves from which to choose from….or a customer can bring in their own glove and have it transformed into a wallet.
How much do your wallets cost?
Pricing varies. If you purchase directly from my shop, generally
the cost will range between $40 and $100 depending on a number of factors. These wallets feature some great leather and are hand stitched so they could very well last your lifetime. If you only have $10 or $15 to spend, it’s best you run to the local
department store to pick up a cheap, machine-stitched wallet made in China.
How long will it take to get a wallet made?
It all depends on what is going on in my life (usually nothing too exciting) and how busy I am at my
regular job, but generally speaking allow a couple weeks or so for me to complete the project. I do have a few wallets already made that are available at my shop; you can see some of their pictures and descriptions below.
How do I contact
you if I have more questions or want to make a purchase?
It’s best to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or a text to 810.710.1099....or you can call me at 810.376.3805. If a wallet is still
pictured on this site and not listed as sold, then it is available. I will try to post more products as time allows.
