Ask nicely ... send your outline and measurements ... be patient ... choose from the selection offered ... pay in full ... be patient ... and you shall receive!

I've now worn mine on three occasions ... and I ain't short on good shoes.

You don't mean he passed away do you? If so, that's very sad news.

he had his workshop in the backyard of his home. he's been there every day until his death. i assume he had a fullfilled life, living his passion...

I am so sorry to hear this news today. When we talk about vanishing crafts, we usually just don't realize that it happens this way. it is just.... very sad.

Nyugodj békében Kiss bácsi!
