Right, this is not a post about leather fetish gear. Well, I suppose it depends on what your fetish is I suppose…

Anyway, I need help (shutup Jon). I quite like the kind of accessories currently being classed as “surfer wear” – stuff made of natural leather, hemp, stone and shells – if you see me, you’ll notice that I’ve found my leather wristband which went missing in the move from London. It’s the kind of stuff work by many climbers, surfers, skaters etc. Now most of the stuff I’ve found on the high street is “designer” (aka “rip-off”) and I’m looking for somewhere, preferably online, that sells this kind of stuff. My google-fu is obviously failing me at the moment, anyone got any suggestions?

    Sounds like you need to mug a ‘creeker.

    (Nothing online to recommend, but we’ve got a hemp store on the main drag, and the rest of it can easily be picked up at the local craft fairs. Not really very helpful, eh?)

    Ok, so WTF is a “creeker”?

    Oh and thanks. You’re absolutely right, not very helpful. *grin* πŸ˜› But thanks anyway.

    A “creeker” is someone who lives in Roberts Creek. Silly. There’s a reason they celebrate Roberts Creek Daze.

    (to quote from a local travel guide: “The most unconventional community along the Sunshine Coast, Roberts Creek is full of offbeat “hippy” types, rambling gardens and talented artisans. … Roberts Creek Daze (August) is a celebration of sunshine and music.”)
