View Full Version : Cheapass leather!

02-16-2004, 03:08 PM
W00T! There's a shoe-repair store near me on Roncesvalles that's going out of business and is selling great big bags (like garbage bag size) of leather in various colours for $15. Didn't catch the address, but it's about halfway between Queen and Dundas, just north of the IGA.

O_O REALLY?!?!?! ....... how far away is this store from say Dundas and Young?

I'm guessing that there aren't any large pieces (enough to make a coat) of leather? Since it is for shoes they probably only have smaller bits...

Around 4-4.5 miles?. Yahoo Maps tells me it's three miles from my house to Dundas and Roncesvalles, and I'm about a mile from Yonge. I'm going to check it out today, see what I can find. :)

Roncesvalles is a bit of a way from Yonge. It runs south from Dundas West Station, where Dundas curves up to meet Bloor. So about halfway along the west side of the Bloor subway line.

I haven't dug through my bag yet but you're probably right, not huge pieces but they weren't all tiny either. ^_^

Kisa, I can buy you a bag if you like. Last I saw they had one bag of mixed burgundy and black, and one bag of brown...but the woman said they'd be putting out other bags as well.

Save your time, people. It seems to have gone from closing to closed. :( There was a phone number for order pick-ups, if anyone wants to call that and ask about the leather (there was at least one bag of brown and black still in the window) -- I didn't think to copy it down, but the store is on the corner of Wright and Roncesvalles (if anyone was looking for slightly more specific directions).

I need leather in large quantities for Dernhelm! BOLLOCKS to the closedness, I would have come into TO on Friday to obtain a bag of my own.

Damn damn damn damn.... I wanted some of that leather....

You still might be able to aquire it by calling the number. Didn't write it down tho...it's posted on the store. They're cleaning stuff out of the store so they might be in there again...*shrug*

Sarcasm: If you're willing to haul a bag of leather, I'll mail you a check or M.O to cover the cost! (I like black... >.> whatever has lots of black sounds good to me!)
Just email me your address or PM me here, and I can get it sent out monday/tuesday (when I get paid for this week)

Sarcasm: how willing are you haul bags of leather around? I can...um...promise you a firstborn? (For stomping, naturally).

02-19-2004, 12:07 PM
LOL I'll call them and see what I can get. Keep in mind that as far as I can see in my own bag the pieces aren't gigantic...maybe a foot and a half square max.
