Default Pampero's leather bag!

Robert's post about Porfidio's bottle has moved me to ask: what to do with the leather bags that Pampero Anniversario comes in after you've cracked the bottle? It's hard to just throw them away, but my marble collection can be handily contained in one bag. Razor strops? Dog hats? Storage sacks for pieces o' eight? Inquiring minds want to know. My Centenario XX bottle poses a similar question, but it's so cool that I could see keeping the empties around "just because." But those Pampero sacks are starting to pile up!

lol - it should be compulsory to keep pieces of eight in those bags!!

Not my bag, but the only thing I've ever seen those pouches used for is bartender caners keeping their stash in them

Another important fact that I never would have known had it not been for the wonders of the internet.

You mean none of you guys sew them together to make bras?

I've seen them used to store fishing hooks, sewing equipment, and for the most part most of the recycled examples I've witness involved sharp or pointed objects being stored in them.

Diamonds - that was a good one angelsword! I hadn't considered that. Now if I could just locate a vacant mine...

That's funny! Imagine... a guy with his package in this package.

A Pud Pole In A Pretty Pouch.
Franks and Beans to go.
Mr. Lucky In Leather.
Sweetly Swaying Beneath The Suede.
OJ says it fits like a glove.

Reminds me of the hilarious music video from Saturday Night Live: Dick In A Box!

Thanks, Jimbo, but I not sure how I'm an expert on such matters. I know about Haulover Beach -- it's a special place for special people on Miami Beach -- but I'm not that special.
