Just got back from a great trip and the zipper on my large suitcase jammed. Had to use a razor to get it open thereby destroying the whole thing.

Anyone know of a place that could replace the zipper?

It might be a stretch but you might try a sailmaker if there's anybody on STX. I see a few listings in the 'phone book for sailmakers on STT but none on STX. If you can locate one there they may know someone who can do that kind of job if they can't do it themselves.

You might also try the shoe repair shop on Northside Road. I'm not sure where it is exactly, but it's on your left as you travel toward C'sted. Think it's not too far from Princess Hardware.

Maybe Wilsons' Cruzan Canvas can do it:

I would try an upholstery VI Drapery and Upholstery in LaReine..assuming the suitcase is some sort of soft, or fabric outside...

Try Gallows Bay Upholstery for years and Hilda Camacho is terrific (513-1978). She's reasonably priced and does great work. Her shop is across the road from Gallows Bay Grooming and the water testing place. We tried Stitches one time and found them to be very expensive and snooty as well.
