Some professions are way undervalued. Like people who repair leather bags. I went to three places trying to get the straps of my favourite bag reattached, but all said, they can't sew through leather that thick (4 layers). Until I found Brian, The Bag Doctor (yes, that's the real name of his business). He did the best job ever. He refurbished my whole bag. Inside the straps, bag and flap, there was vinyl (only the outside pieces were leather) - he replaced them all and it looks like new. So so stoked.
Brian, I give you a medal. Ok. And a showbag.
