    You can get some saphir polish from leather soul in hawaii. I bought 2 or 3 tins, shipping was hardly anything.

    just note that its branded for them but i was told by tom its the same stuff in the tin

    Second this. I've done the same thing. They also sell Renovateur and it's branded as Leather Soul, but it's the same thing.

    I just checked the site but nothing there. I presume you have to email them? How's their prices?

    It's not on the site, but if you email Tom he'll be able to send you some. It's been a while since I ordered, but the Saphir Renovateur jar was around $22 this time last year.

    My calculations of an order from Valmour of:

    6 items of Light Brown Cream Pommadier dOR 75 mL
    6 items of Renovateur 75 mL
    6 items of Pate De Luxe Light Brown 100 mL

    Total is about AUD$235 (depending on exchange rates with Euro). I am just strictly passing on costs, with no profit margins added.

    If 6 members take up a set of three items (cream, reno and pate), each member pays roughly AUD$39. There is no more significant incremental discounts after 6 members, until we get to Euro$2000.

    I am taking one set. So need 5 more.

    Color can be discussed, but must be the same color for the same item.

    I am doing this whilst I am still enthusiastic and have some free time available (which is rare).

    FWIW, the good folks over at AFPOS have been known to throw in the occasional free tin of Sapphire with shoe orders.
