Since 1907, Langer's Luggage Shop and Handbag Hospital has specialized in restoring vintage leather and vinyl goods, no matter what their condition. Owner Raffi Aintablian is passionate about doing quality work. To him, each piece has its own story. Beautiful old briefcases, vintage Gucci bags and worn-in Western boots all receive special attention. The shop is especially skilled in zipper repair, with the special equipment necessary to handle any project. Bring in a bag or pair of shoes that need a little TLC and see for yourself. Aintablian promises, “You won't be disappointed.” —Jacky Surber
