    After investing (heavily if you ask my wife) in better quality shoes (damn you B&S for turning me into a shoe addict!) I wanted to buy some Crema Alpina/Nubiana. I know Franco's carries it but the shipping almost doubles the price!

    Any idea of other online sources that hopefully has free shipping?

    If you buy a pair of Ron's lovely boots, maybe he'd consider combining shipping. [​IMG]

    I happen to be the proud owner of a pair of cordovan chukkas from Ron [​IMG] .

    Is Franco's the only stockist? They still don't seem to have any in stock and I am close to running out. Anyone had any luck buying directly from the maker in Italy?

    Ron tells me that he can't import it any more because the maker won't reveal what's in it and so DHS can't figure out whether it's an explosive. Move on and get something else. advleather.com's products work nicely for furniture and Saphir should have something comparable.

    Wow, this really sucks. Saphir Renovateur is good, though.

    Does Franco's usually carry the Renovateur, too? Been looking for it for a while. Leffot's seems to be out. Looking to upgrade from Lexol, which doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

    I've bought it there in the past but haven't looked lately. Luckily, I have a bottle and a half of Crema Nubiana left. [​IMG]

    You can probably sell it like some people sell partially used bottles of EDT.

    Does anyone have any extra bottles available? I'm desperately looking for a bottle as I'm out. :-\\ I'd be willing to pay $75 for a bottle.
