Skins and cases in the UK

Hey,
I am one of the many caught in the kindle pre-order rush. I would love to get a skin for it as I personally think it looks (press shots) pretty pedestrian but from doing a quick search and scanning the main UK based sites I couldn't find anyone selling ereader skins.

Does anyone know of any sites that do ereader skins based in the UK or is it a case of importing from America if you want one?

Plus any recomendations on good places to buy covers?

I understand of course that it will take a short while before K3 specific skins and cases are available.

Cheers

Try decalgirl or skinit, although I prefer declgirl.

Usually it is white. Especially in the northern part and Scotland. Although, this summer probably gave a good suntan even to most reclusive white skinned creature.
However, cases? It is not that cold and misty to subject oneself to a water proof enclosure.

I'd second the Decalgirl recommendation. I've bought several skins from them for various items (Sony reader, iTouch, etc) and have found the quality of their skins to be excellent.

Delivery is usually very quick, considering that the item is sent from the US to the UK.

But what about those from-elsewhere-English persons!


Are there already skins for the K3? Wouldn't the K3 be available first?

Shameless plug here, but I love the cases made by seller Sakizome on etsy.com. I've bought two from her as well as a smartphone sleeve. She ships internationally.

I don't have anything about skins to add since I don't use any, but I know DecalGirl is popular.
