Although not made for this purpose, these stunning bags may be a perfect match for your most treasured Cups.

Note the black leather style...and can you spot the lemon? (or is that a Grapefruit?):

They're a little big, a touch too modern for my taste and at $300 to $400 a bag a little out of my price range.

I'm having a friend knit/crochet mine for me, all I had to do was buy her lunch :) Those are nice though, but you could get some kidskin leather for around 25 bucks and make your own. 300-400 dollars is crazy!

I like Crown Royal bags but I do a lot of bar work

I too like the Crown Royal bag. I carry my Don Alan Chop cup in it. For my cups, I usually carry them in a leather zipper pouch that came in an old Dr. bag I bought many years ago. The bag was ACTUALLY stained on the inside with what looked like blood and the pouch contained a very old, rusty syringe set. I sterilized the heck out of them and a few years ago when I bought a new bag, gave the Dr. bag to a sideshow friend who loved the bloodstains.

Speaking of Crown Royal Bags, I was thinking this would be good...a sort of dual purpose:

Bill,

Great link! Those bags look awesome. The prices are very reasonable as well. Thanks for the infomation. If I ever get unpacked, I'll send off for at least a bag for my cups.


Thanks,

KG

Thanks kent, we miss you already, by the way the top of those bags uses up about 1.5 inches for the ties so measure accordingly. Mary can make them as big ur small as needed! So coins and knives etc are good,

Here's two I like and they're designed specifically for cups.

Thanks! That's the one I use. I love it.
As with several of our products, it was actually the vision of a Café member who commissioned the first one.
We've been making them ever since.

In the SCA, we refer to it as "Motley".

Beautiful bags! I take it that the Motley one is leather?

Beautiful!

My cups are kept in a velvet change bag that is embroidered on both sides - an oroboros on one side, my household coat of arms on the other. Makes it easy to keep track of which side you are using, not to mention getting rid of that pesky extra.
