    Hello Folks, I would like to bring your attention and interest to the next Group Buy I will be running , I will be adding substantial details later on and providing clarification on everything . ( Will be editing this page at later date )

    Just wanted to kick this off as I have seen some members talking about getting into Leather ( :rolleyes: ) and requiring the basis of a Tool set to start with. Don't want you spending money on new tools if we can provide at a better price via a Group Buy.

    The bones of this Group Buy will be a sub £40.00 beginners Leather working tool set with an option to upgrade and change certain components to your choosing.

    Available Numbers on this Group Buy MAY be limited , so if interested you may want to form an orderly que.



    #### made a few minor alterations to the above to clear things up####

    Ditto.

    I just shelled out for a few basics, but a GB deal is the best kinda' deal :D

    I'd be interested in it, especially if there's a little flexibility and/or upgrade potential.
