Looking For Old Boots!


Know where I can get a bunch of old cowboy worn-out cowboy boots? :) I need ‘em. I just finished ten pair — 20 refillable journals. I love how soft the leather turned out. Bootstraps are used as snap closures and they have 60 page notebooks inside (2 or 3 depending on width of journal cover). Some of them are Travelers Notebook width; most are A5—5.5” x 8.5.” The latter can use Moleskine Cahier notebook inserts or they are available here in my online store.

I love making these. The challenge is in finding the boots at a (cheapish) price. Any ideas?
