As people's tastes grow more refined, they tend to move away from things that're mass produced, which is a shame, because Amherst does have a nice theater. For sophisticated money holders appropriate for any production, hit up Barrett Alley Wallets.
Using cowhide from a 100-year old New England tannery, the skilled craftsmen at this leather shop handstitch an upscale line of Western-style leather bifolds and card wallets that're accented w/ vintage American workwear metal, available in five colors, and lined w/ antique Japanese/German textiles -- so don't be surprised if your wallet makes a tripartite pact to take over your pants. Highlights include the Destiny, a hunter-harvested American deerskin flip wallet with hand-dyed, hemp indigo lining from the mid 19thC Japanese Edo period; the shell cordovan Disciple, a credit/biz card-sized envelope cut from a single piece of leather and stitched with Irish linen thread; and the natural Devilish, a five-pocket bifold lined w/ antique red & cream striped cotton fabric and made from a 4oz vegetable leather that continues to tan over time, like having George Hamilton in your pants, without all the old man screams. There's also the just-released noir Heresy, a signed-and-numbered two-pocket leather flip w/ a deep interior pocket for folded cash that includes a linen gift pouch; and a slim russet triple slot card number that rocks three separate divisions, a tapered bottom, and is edged with beeswax, though, until you get it, none of it is yours.
As not to neglect your sun cheaters and/or dramamine, BA also peddles the tassle-accented Dom Sunglass holder lined w/ 1920s German linen plaid, and a Petite Pill Pouch w/ a "flap and strap closure" that holds about 5-10 pills -- depending on what you stock it with, enough to get two and half to five people through a Pleasant Street matinee.
