Gotta love Tinymeat


Originally uploaded by dieselboi.

I have become a big fan of handmade items of late. I currently make most of the presents we give out during the holidays and plan on continuing on into the new year with endeavor or another. I also admire those who are creative and sell their wares. I even have a Lelo original apron for the kitchen….but that’s another story entirely.

Tinymeat is Mikey and Mona. I have known Mikey now for the better part of 10 years even though he has not lived in Portland for awhile. He and Mona recently returned and we have rekindled a great friendship with them. They have also brought the wonderful Tinymeat company to our fair town. Mikey and Mona make wallets, card cases and passport cases with unique designs and art. They have created a great network of artists around the nation to help with their designs. Honestly, I don’t even know how many designs they now have because it is ever changing. Pictured here is the Venison w/Apricots card case (and Phoebe.) I believe it is one of their original designs from back in the day. Just scrolling through their catalog makes me want to get more and switch it up depending on my mood. There are a few other vendors out there that make similar wallets and I have had another’s wallet in my pocket, but it didn’t stand up to the wear like Tinymeat’s does. Also, who else would have a following on Flickr with photos of people and their Tinymeat from all over.

I know this may sound like I’m shilling for Mikey and Mona. And honestly, maybe I am……..

I’m also hitting you up to a wonderful local craft handmade right here in Portland. Oh, and at the last meetup, there were some Tinymeat items floating around. Not sure if that will occur again, but hey, hedge your bets.

Check out Tinymeat’s store on Etsy and their success story. Welcome to Portland Tinymeat!

    *I* managed to snag the best wallet of all. ‘Tightwad’ in big white letters on a black background. Gave it to my teenaged son so he could show it off at school.

    I have a bunch of their playground insult bracelets. Know-it-all and Numbnuts seem to get worn the most.

    The only reason I haven’t bought a wallet yet is ’cause I haven’t been able to choose one.
