One word about Tandy. About two years ago, I decided to try
leatherworking. (I'm thirty-four, and hadn't done it since
jr. high). I went to our local Tandy store and bought the
beginners kit for about $10. The stamps were very low-grade,
and made of a brassy colored metal. It was so basic, I went back
and bought the $25 dollar kit. Oh so much better. Chrome-plated
stamps, and a decent quality knife.
This, like many other hobbies, you can spend as much or as little
as you want, but it's better to start out with a few good-quality
tools, than Tandy's cheapest.
(I haven't opened my kit for about a year, maybe I'll go dig it out.)

full of strange time, is for ever flowing
