Had a couple of weeks holidaying in Wales and to my surprise there are no leather craft suppliers in Wales at all! This shocker was confirmed by a saddlery in Llanelli who get their needs supplied my mail order from a place in England.
Anyway, big up to my Dad who got me two bottles of Resolene (for finishing / protecting) from Tandy in Northampton and for giving me precision pliers (plain surgical steel) from his doctoring days. The mini vise and fine leather needles may come in handy for future projects. The needles were from a very small sewing shop in Cardiff market.
