Our stationery keeps on the move because we
carry the UP quality and style and sell it for the
DOWN price.
Our leather goods LAST; because people always
come to us for them FIRST. We sell good stuff;
the style is right; the PRICE is right.
Our business is good, because our good stuff
makes it good.
