Northern Folk Vendor Spotlight: Jameson Leatherworks
April 13, 2015
Quality over quantity - it's something you'll hear over and over again when talking about American Made goods. Buying handcrafted products is sometimes a bigger investment than opting for mass produced items but with your decision to buy a handmade good you're not just getting the quick thrill of making a purchase.
American Made goods are made to last. When you buy from local makers- you're getting a direct link to their process, a superior product, and a lifetime guarantee that the maker you're buying from is going to back up their design.
Jameson Leatherworks of Moorhead, MN is a company that believes in creating items that are meant for a lifetime of use. Their items are made for wear and tear and they are timeless in their design. I happen to own a key-fob made by these guys and I love how it has held up to everyday use over the last year. They make a variety of products - from passport holders to wallets and key-fobs - they'll have a selection of their unique goods at Northern Folk next weekend.
