"Those prices are a little on the high end for me"
Yeah they are kinda high dollar, but they are made of leather.
What's a leather wallet go for these days?
It's one of those things that you can find for less but it could take many years to do it.
Plus it looks like these might be used by doctors or hospitals so that can jack up the price too.
My drinks mostly these days are booze, juice or coke, ice.

Yeah, it's a matter of prioritization. I want it, but for that I can get a couple of large glass floats, the better part of two rolls of bamboo fence, boards to carve for the column cladding, and additional tropical ceiling fan to replace those remaining ugly white ones... what gives me the most bang for my buck in the ongoing bar build? I might think a recipe index like that is super-cool (especially since I don't have any recipes committed to memory yet) but will my guests be wowed? Probably not.

At least the Mai Tai recipe was shown. Interesting that lime wasn't mentioned.
