Price Increase in 2023
Like many small businesses, I have been hit hard by the current inflation rate and the profiteering done by major businesses using it as an excuse. I have been trying to avoid raising prices for as long as I could, but with the increase in price in, well, everything. I don’t think this is something I can avoid any longer.

Returned from Kinkfest and Stock!
This past Easter Weekend was Kinkfest, first major convention since COVID. It was a fantastic weekend with a great response from everyone who came by to see me.

I really appreciate your patience as I retool and restock!
Classes have Resumed, Part 2!!
Well, there was a bit of a false start last year, with folks not really ready for classes quite yet. We're trying again with the start of the new year, and we're going to do our best to make classes the safest they can be. For our first class this year, we're returning to an old favorite, Rope Bondage 101.

Tickets are available at: https://www.rackleather.com/products/getting-what-you-want-a-workshop-on-confident-negotiation-for-kink
Looking for a Marketing Manager/Partner
After some time, I have come to the conclusion that I need help. To that end, I am looking for someone that is interested in working with me as a marketing/sales manager to shore up my skill weakness in that area.Right now as the company is still growing, and especially after this past year I am working on limited resources so I can only offer commission on commercial sales (ie, sales to stores and other wholesale purchases) and product credit for hourly work/guidance provided. Both rates are negotiable based on experience and skills offered.Ideally I am looking for someone that...
