Good evening readers…

I just had to stop by share my Craigslist find. A local lady was getting rid of some leather that she no longer wanted. About 30+ pounds of it. There are about 8 large skins of various colors as well as two plastic bags of fairly decent sized scraps. Most of them large enough for book covers. She used to make purses and bags so the leather is good quality and a great weight for books.

Good morning readers…

The weather has finally dipped into cold temperatures here in the southland. Not quite to freezing yet but there was a bit of frost on the grass this morning. I know some of our neighbors to the north got some snow at the beginning of the week. While I think a little snow would be nice, it always makes things crazy out on the roads here. I hope we don’t see any here until January/February.

For the album makers among you…I have found that Framing Supplies Plus no longer has the best price on the 3M adhesive rolls. Back in June the price was $25.84 for an 11″x50′ roll an d when I went to reorder last night the price had jumped to $52.95 per roll. I understand that they were probably not making much profit at all on a roll but to double the price in four months is kind of crazy. I did send them an email asking if the price was correct. We’ll see what they say.

In the mean time, searching the Internet, I found several places that offer reasonable it at prices. Adorama Camera offers an 11″x50′ roll for $39.00. Depending on where you live shipping for 2 rolls is around $10 or so. Hillas offers it at $34.67 per roll but you have to buy 6 at a time. Also, M&M Distributors offers it for $36.95 per roll with no minimum. Don’t know what the shipping would be.

I have done business with Adorama but not the other two companies so I can’t tell you anything about shipping or customer service.
