Before you scan down to the bottom to see the response to The Beatles or The Rolling Stones question,  let me introduce you to one of our makers coming to The Mom & Pop Shoppe on Saturday, April 25th.  This is another in a series of Vendor Spotlights where we let those who will be sharing their wares shine a light on what it is they do.  The following profile is Jordan from Wright and Rede and his response to a mini-questionnaire.

1). What's your name and what is it that you make?
Jordan Lee, Owner of Wright and Rede. I make handmade leather goods with a focus on simplicity of design and quality craftsmanship.

2). How did you acquire the unique skill set to do what it is you do?
I am entirely self taught. Lots of trial and error. Tons of being pig-headed and insisting on doing things the hard way. And you know.... Youtube.

3). What is your best seller?
It is a 50/50 split between my Passport Case and these customized Pocket Knives I've been turning out lately.

If I see a red door I want to paint it black.
