*Faves* The Right Tools and Talent

Browsing through the favorites from HandmadeMN members, I came across two Etsy shops that sell hand-tooled leather goods. "Moxieandoliver" is one of fromotofthecracks favorite sellers, and "brigit" is one of StarglowStudio's favorites.

Doing an Etsy search for "tooled leather" I also found an Etsy shop located in right in Minneapolis, Minnesota--"manitobagifts."

Interestingly, these three Etsy shops span coast to coast--moxieandoliver in Seattle, WA, brigit in Sewell NJ, and of course, manitobagifts, located right here in Minnesota!

These are a few of my favorites from the favorites and the search. =)
