Anyone own this Hand Made Leather Kindle 3 Case?

Looks delish. Seriously thinking of buying due to its simple, minimal design and the fact that the craftsmanship looks amazing. Curious if anyone else had one. Link here.

That is actually what I planned on getting for my K3 last month, but I went with the Pad & Quill case (also on Etsy) instead. We'll see if I made a good choice, once my case arrives ... Oh who am I kidding, I'll probably end up getting this one too eventually. I have a bit of a case addiction. I think I had 5 or 6 different cases for my K2.

LOL exer! Can't wait to hear how you like the Pad & Quill. It's been tempting me as well.

Very nice, I like it's simplicity and that it's a slip case....but the price is pretty hefty. I may give in if I keep looking at it. Great find!!

Resized. I agree the price is hefty. But when I consider that there are more expensive cases out there of lesser quality... be that as it may, its a hard decision for me to spend that kind of money on any case. I mean it's a third of the cost of a 3G model for cry eye.

Excellent case. Just saw the video review of this one. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this one. Thanks!

Hope you like it. The company is really nice, they sent me a free hard shell case for the K3. I don't like it, though. Love the leather case!

A great cover plus several Kindle accessories for $13.99.
This cover is all that anyone could desire.
Don't be mislead by the low price. Most covers are greatly overpriced.

After bemoaning the cost, going back and forth looking at different designs, I decided that I really wanted this case, and looking at Paypal, saw I had some play money from some advertising, so I decided to order it. Will post a review when it gets here.

Talking

Just wanted to post a followup. I received my leather case today from New Zealand. I am over the moon excited with it. It's so nice to see actual thick leather that feels and smells like what you would expect leather to be like.

The craftsmanship on this case is amazing. Lives up to the expectations one might have of a fine piece of hand crafted leatherwork. The K3 slides in nice and easy and the flap secures it in a loving embrace.

I've included a bunch of photos. Links to full size ones (18mp sorry), are available below each for those who really want a detailed look at things. Hope you enjoy the pics.

I hope you enjoyed this update, I know I'll be enjoying this case for a long, long time.

Sorry for some of the excessive flash on a few of those photos. Color is more true on the later Pic #5, #7 & #8.
