Want to be in our coffee table book?

028To celebrate 15 years of making hand-crafted goods in the USA, we are putting together a coffee table photo book featuring only well-worn Billykirk items.

It’s easy!  All you need to do is email us a photo of your item(s) to info@billykirk.com as well as a brief history of the item(s) for a chance to be featured. Belts, Wallets, Card Cases, Satchels, Bags…nothing will be excluded!  Each item will fill an entire 12”x12” page and your name and story will be mentioned below the photo.

If your item(s) is chosen, our friend and professional photographer, Tatsuro Nishimura, will photograph your item(s) in his studio in New Jersey and once it is photographed will be promptly returned to you.

For your participation, you will receive a personalized and signed copy of the book from founders and owners Chris and Kirk Bray.

Looking forward to seeing everyones well-used and well-loved Billykirk goods! See below for some good examples!

A little note on the origins of Black Friday

Black Friday crowdsWhether you’re also braving store fronts or staying in at the computer, we’re happy to provide 24 hours of Billykirk discounts through our site.  While it can be fun to head into stores, we also hope some appreciate an alternative to shopping in streets “black with traffic” …

“Black Friday” was first coined in 1951 to describe how manufacturing offices shut down, with employees taking the day off for holiday shopping. It gained mainstream use in the early 1960s after Philadelphia police officers described one of the country’s biggest shopping days as the city’s worst traffic day. “This day was black with traffic.” It has alternatively been called “Big Friday,” as the biggest shopping day of the year.

Be sure to keep an eye on our Sales section, as we’re adding new items every day between now and the 29th.
