    Need help in wine country!

    I want to appologize first because this is such an outrageous request. My name is Alex MacDougall and I am getting married tomorrow (Saturday June 6th) in Healdsburg, CA. My groomsmen and I are all wearing kilts but by some stroke of bad luck we are one sporran short. Is there any one out there who knows were/how I could come by an extra sporran? Is there anyone who would be willing to loan/rent me one for tomorrow? I'd be more than willing to leave some sort of deposit as collateral. Again, sorry for the bizarre request and any help would be very much appreciated!

    I would gladly let you borrow mine. Wish I was closer to help out. Good luck and congrats on the nuptials.

    I would send you a sporran, however as I'm in Toronto, Ontario it would not do you too well. I just did a google search for tartan shops in the area, the closest I camr up with is here:

    Scottish Tartan Shop

    Hope this helps

    Much thanks all but it has been settled! A friend of a friend has come through and saved the day. Who says scots are frugal? You have proven to be some of the most generous people in the world!

    The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.
