I hand stitch bike tube wallets. Anyone interested in purchasing one? Custom made to specs. choice of embroidery thread color, number of pockets (2 or 3), and either an elastic or metal snap closing. I sell them for $20 and they last a hell of a long time.
You can view them at my girlfriend's shop in Silverlake, ReForm School. http://www.reformschoolrules.com
(4014 Santa Monica @ Sunset Blvd.)
They're not on the site yet but some are at the store to check out.
tight!!!!!!! RS is right behind my house :) there's such cute stuff in there! and I love the reusing of innertubes! my old roommate was making cell phone holders from innertubes..

Those look pretty cool, but I have a question.
Are they a pain in the ass to get in and out of your pocket?

Totally goes in and out of pockets with ease. Takes about an hour to make each one....sometimes longer.
Thanks for the props on the store. Tootie and her biz partner take a ton of pride in picking items for the store.
probably 75 - 90% of the stuff in the store are "GREEN" items, sustainable, recycled, bla bla bla..
THEY HAVE A NICE SUPPLY OF FREITAG BAGS AS WELL.

I have a drawerfull of old tubes. I cut them up for rubberbands, but I have way too many right now.
I'll drop 'em by next time I'm out your way.
No highjack, I still want a wallet!

I want a bike tube wallet! I think it's a great idea, and I support anything that re-uses useless bike tubes. I might be able to go there to the shop later this week.

Hey, have you ever attempted neckties out of bike tubes? I know I saw some online ages ago (can't remember where; duh), and they looked really slick. I'd buy at least one of those as a gift for sure...

I'm finishing up a few right now for customers of ReForm School but should have a few more in a few days.
