Just in case you have someone who loves you
Why is this shit so expensive?
Perhaps this “shit” is “expensive” because everything is handmade. Think about it from my perspective. Take your time to think up of a design and then actually going out to source the best possible materials you could get your hands on. And then go home and actually take the time to make and perfect it. ( Sometimes it takes more than one try ) It isn’t such a fast easy process. Now think about all that and ask yourself, would you really charge $40 for a leather harness that you worked 2-3 hours on when it costs you more than half of that alone for leather and not even including the cost for rivets, buckles, or your time? No.
Remember that this “shit” is made by someone who is not a machine. I cannot repeat that enough. I also do not have workers making products for me. I have to put my time and money into making these things. There are other things to consider as well such as transit money to get the materials or purchasing the tools to make the work a little bit easier. As much as I would love to price everything $20, it would be a huge loss for me and quite frankly, it wouldn’t be worth it for me.
That is why my “shit” is “expensive”
I have a pair of shoe garters from creepyyeha, and they are definitely worth it. They are extremely well made, from nice thick real leather. Worth every penny, especially considering they’re handmade. I handmake the things on my shop too, so I know how how much of a time consuming business it can be!
