Where can I buy a new sporran?

Post by juansweetpotato » Thu Jun 22, 2017 8:31 pm

I have a wedding to go to, and as you know, a Scotsman can't go to a wedding without being dressed in full military dress. Including of course a kilt and sporran. However, when I got mine out of the suitcase, it looked like something had got at it.
It looked all mangey.
Does anyone know where I can buy a new one out here?
If not, perhaps another fellow kith or kin could lend me theirs? Or perhaps someone has an idea for a substitute?
TIA

I'm sure somewhere out there, there'll be a row of 10 or 12 sporran shops all together.

Or maybe not.

Seems perfectly reasonable - that would make a great series of hand-drawn posters. A dozen sporran shops. Half a dozen llama outlets. Three shops that only sell Gouda.

Why don't you just make your own. Shouldn't take too long.

Or gouda-stuffed llama meat, presented in a sporran...

Ha! Damn, I missed the dancing banana in a kilt emoji. :thumb:
I just realised from watching that video, that there is likely to be an outsourced sporran factory in Cambodia.

Which brings me to another point. Why do the kwik-e-marts have such non-Cambodian names? Why Llama Mart, Kiwi Mart and Panda Mart? Why don't they have Monkey Mart, Gecko Mart and Rat Mart? Or other vaguely Cambodian related names?

Now because sweet kumara is my best friend I am willing to loan my sporran, but dont ask to borrow my kilt cause I wear it all day when at home.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

What a fantastic idea. I'm sure the locals wouldn't know that it wasn't the genuine article. A definite improvement on the original design as it makes my Jock Savage look even longer :thumb:

I doubt if even the General could come up with something better than that?
