Before leather craftsmanship, footballs were made from watermelons, and motorcycle gangs sported corduroy dinner jackets with tweed elbow patches. Get your gear in gear with today’s Groupon to The Awl Shoppe, valid at two area locations. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get $100 worth of luggage and accessories.
- For $12, you get $25 worth of shoe, luggage, or coat repair.
The Awl Shoppe outfits travellers with the valises they seek and makes deft repairs to shoes, luggage, sports equipment, and other ailing accessories. Browsers encounter a hearty stock of bags and luggage from brands such as Briggs & Riley, Eagle Creek, Victorinox Swiss Army, and more that inspire energetic carrying on about carryons. A 24-inch upright roller suitcase ($130+) acts as the good-postured cousin to convenient duffle bags on wheels, such as the Samsonite rolling 22 inch ($59.99) or 26 inch ($69.99). Many of The Awl Shoppe’s travel wares are available in sturdy nylon, and its seasoned staff is on hand to consult on specific travel needs.
When shoes start getting mistaken for swiss cheese, a tender treatment by the store’s heel and toe whisperers can repair languishing boots, coats, purses, luggage, and sports equipment. Restore a half sole ($45) and heel ($25) on a men’s brogue, or install ladies' heel lifts for comfort and a height nudge ($10.95+). The Awl Shoppe has served Saskatoon trotters for more than 30 years but doesn’t look a day over 19.
