Brooks dealer in Dallas?

I ordered a Brooks leather saddle from Wallbike and thought it would come with the tension wrench and Proofide. It didn't. I don't want to start riding it until I treat it with the Proofide, but I also don't want to wait another few days for it to arrive in the mail. Anyone know of a shop in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that deals in their products?

Thanks

If I'm not mistaken Richardson Bike Mart should have
Proofide.
As for the tension spanner, don't do it. You will probably
never use it (read the article on Sheldon Browns site).

Don't forget to Proofide the underside of the saddle,
don't wipe off the excess its for waterproofing only
(yeah like we really get to ride when there's rain!).
