I’m having a love affair, with my wallet.Oh, I know for some people finding the quintessential wallet is a lifelong pursuit, but not me. I found one 20 years ago and am faithful. I’m not looking back or forward to the newfangled.Mine is one big rectangular leather pouch with border stitching, rivets and a worn-out clasp. It was a bit more than I could afford to spend at the time with no compartments for credit cards and change, but it called to me and over the past 20 years it possesses a luster that’s a roadmap to charm, and yes, rustic glam.Like timeworn slippers or an old leather sofa, it has served me well.
