I received a packet of leather swatches today and tested out all of the samples, and only 2 of them mostly passed my water-dumping and Brawny-towel-rubbing amateur tests. After only a few minutes though, the best-performing leather began to form small wart-like bubbles on the surface. Gross.
Now that I have exhausted all of my US leather supply options, I think I know which vendor I’ll use. By talking with dozens of leather vendors, I feel like I know a lot about vegetable tanned leather now. But unfortunately, in the grand scheme of things, this information is relatively useless, much like my other random trivia knowledge about Thundercats and Sound of Music.
I watched a webinar this afternoon about website optimization, and although I felt like 90% of the presentation covered very basic stuff (“How many of you use Google?” Seriously?), I did learn more about shopping carts. When I speak with my web designer next week, I might actually provide some added value.
OK, powering down. Adios!
