Hello Kurt:

I have had good luck with saddle and tack shops for leather work and quality
leather for straps, mostly the latter.

I have found a shoe repairman here in Oakland, California who has done
wonders with Leica and Rolleiflex cases.   He is so tuned into quality that
I give him a $20.00 Christmas gift in appreciation.   This year, I might
even give him more.
