A tiny notebook wallet for cards and cash that comes with a 2.5"x4" notebook and Fisher Space Pen. Handmade and saddle stitched. Great for front or back pocket carry. People who appreciate good old paper and pen will love the functionality and pocketability of this small wallet.
"THE PARK SLOPER JUNIOR"
NOTE: This is the JUNIOR. The Park Sloper SENIOR is the larger Field Notes sized (3.5"x5.5" notebook) version of this wallet. See a size comparison and learn more here: http://onestarleathergoods.com/products/#/the-park-sloper-walletnotebook/
I had been wanting to combine a small wallet with a tiny notebook for some time, so when my cousin called me in 2012 and requested exactly that, I immediately got to work. My cousin is a singer/songwriter living in Brooklyn, NYC (www.johndelore.com). He gave the product its name as he figured it would be a hit in his neighborhood. Here is the result: a compact simple wallet, tiny notepad and pen. A lot of time and effort has lead me to this design, and I stand by its quality and utility.
Two card slots on the left fit 2 cards each (more when broken in), behind those is another pocket with a partially open top to facilitate access to your once-folded bills, business cards or whathaveyous. You can also tuck cards or that special someone's phone number behind the notebook.
I keep stitching off the spine where it receives the most wear and I've sized the dimensions exactly so your folded bills won't be crushed when the wallet is closed.
Includes a 2.5"x4" notebook:
-- Standard (pictured): Moleskine Volant Extra Small - great for standard pens, available online and in stores worldwide
-- Fountain pen friendly (+$2): If you use fountain pens and want better paper, select this upgrade. These are from SlimNote (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SlimNote)
Includes a Fisher Space Pen Stowaway. While it is the smallest Space Pen, when posted it is near full size and comfortable in the hand. Space Pens use pressurized ink cartridges that can withstand extreme temperatures and will write upside down, in zero gravity and underwater. Perfect for every day carry.
The hole in the pen sleeve is to facilitate removing the pen. The pen sleeve will start out tight on the pen but will break in to a perfect fit.
I also make this wallet with a slightly larger pen sleeve that will work with the Fisher Space Pen BULLET and the Kaweco Liliput fountain and ballpoint pens.
11.5cm x 8.5 cm closed, 16.5cm x 11.5 cm open.
Top quality bridle leather from the Hermann Oak tannery in St. Louis. This leather is thin, durable and will age wonderfully.
I recommend periodic application of a good leather oil or balm, like my One Star Leather Balm ($18), available here in my shop. Learn more: http://onestarleathergoods.com/products/#/leather-balm/

"This wallet is a work of art." -Brad, Seattle
"Items shipped and arrived very quickly. Better than described - exceptionally well made. Photos do not do this justice. I've carried a slim wallet, notebook, and pen for ages but being able to keep them all together makes them that much more useful. This has become my EDC wallet. The pictures don't show how slim this remains even with notebook, cards, and cash in the wallet. It easily disappears in an inside suit pocket or front trouser pocket. " - Robert, New Orleans
"Durability. If you buy the Park Sloper for nothing else, buy it for the durability. I was waiting to write my review of the Park Sloper until I had used the wallet for a few months, to see how it would hold up to the grueling life of being put into and pulled out of a pocket. But it got a much more extreme test. I absentmindedly left my Park Sloper on the roof of my car, then drove off onto one of the busiest mountain highways in Washington State. I thought I had lost it forever. Days later, I got an email. The wallet was found and traced to me by the email address in the notebook. It had been in the middle of the highway for 2 days, was even getting actively run over when the gentlemen found it. I expected the worst. Apart from a few scuffs, a destroyed pen and notebook (the only thing not made by One Star), the wallet is in perfect condition. Not a tear, not a rip, not even a frayed stitch after being bombarded by hundreds of vehicles and crushed into the pavement. This wallet is the real deal and I would never buy anything else." -Patrick, Seattle
