I would like to find a really skilled leather worker to custom make a high-quality multi-compartment leather wallet for me in the Lakeside area. Any recommendations?

There is a custom leather shop across from Mia's Consignment shop.  When you drive by it you will see belts displayed on a rack and usually purses.  I have had a couple of purses custom made by him and he did a wonderful job.  We have had belts made also there.

He does an excellent job but you have to have patience. I took him an old purse that I loved with lots of zippers, pockets, nooks and crannies. He duplicated it perfectly but it took two months.

He definitely is not sensitive to time. I have never had him make me anything as small as a wallet but I am satisfied with his work.

Hector (across from 7/11 in Riberas, sells clay statutes etc) used to sell leather purses with multiple pockets; perhaps ask him who he got them from. I haven't been to his store in a while so not sure what his current stock is.
