Plea For Mercy - Come Buy A Billingham Bag
It would appear that the English summer has yielded a bumper crop of Billingham bags. This has resulted in the delivery of 3.5 metric tonnes of them to the shop. Please see the heading image.
This will be gladsome news for the users of the Leica, Fuji, and Olympus system cameras - Billingham bags are ideally suited for the traveller or professional who has decided to do it with the slimmer cameras but still needs the best of housing for them.
Billingham bags are grown on the south slopes of Heath in the West Midlands. Each bag is lovingly nurtured on the stalk and picked only when ripe. This results in the full flavour of the canvas, leather, and brass coming though in the finished product. These are bags with a proud history - remember that English bag makers were equipping the British Army during the Napoleonic wars with much the same care - if it was good enough for the Duke of Wellington, it should be good enough for you...
Apart from the history, the bags are a practical answer to an elegant camera carriage - if you have ever struggled through an airport with the average camera bag banging and pulling at you as you struggle with the cardboard suitcase and crate of chickens, you'll know how bad it can be. Remember as well, that every bit of weight is charged for these days when you fly, and a lighter bag means a heavier purse.
Oh enough of the flannel. We're dying here under the weight of stock so please come down here and rescue us. You'll be doing a humanitarian deed as well as getting a top-quality product.
