    I had the PERFECT sleeve for an iPad Mini.
    Simple black leather with a green felt interior.
    NO, notches, straps, geegaws ... Cost me $10.
    It & my iPad Mini were recently stolen.
    Now I have an iPad Mini 3 .... AND I CAN'T FIND A CASE FOR IT!!

    I looked EVERYWHERE:
    I thought I bought it on Amazon, so I checked my back orders so I could just BUY IT AGAIN. Nope.
    Apparently I bought it someplace else.

    Then I just googled black leather ipad mini 3 sleeve and all I got back were hits of
    folios, smartcases, sleeves with straps & buckles, etc., etc.
    The few that were just simple black leather sleeves were upwards of $150-200.

    After yet more fruitless searching, I became so desperate, I was gonna get one of superexpensive ones.
    But I decided to try here first. Any help at all, please? Just a link will do. Thanks!

    Thank you for your help, but those aren't exactly what I'm looking for.
    The sleeve you linked to has a zipper plus padded interior.
    Everything else on that sight fold, turns into a stand, has buckles, etc.
    I don't want any of that stuff.
    To help explain what I mean, here's my iPad Air sleeve ....

    See? Just a plain leather sleeve with a felt interior.
    No zippers, tabs, buckles, snaps, buttons, clasps, etc., etc.
    That's what I want for my iPad Mini 3: nothing more.

    So why don't I just go to the place where I got this and then see if they have Mini sleeves, too?
    Because the company's logo in the lower right corner has been
    so worn away with everyday use that I can't read what it says anymore! lol
    But, again, thank you for trying to help!

    Anyone else, please? Thanks!

    Have you tried nedrelow.com? If it doesn't have to be leather, they do an all felt sleeve, nothing more, nothing less. I had one for an iPad 2 and iPad 3 and they were great.

    When I got a sleeve they had some simple ones at MacMall.com

    The one I got want leather and all it had extra was a small Velcro strap to keep it from falling out.

    Lol, I couldn't resist checking this post, what an awesome title :) !!!

    You could try 'Sena' cases, these are some of the best quality leather cases and sleeves out there, but they're also going to cost you a lot more than $10..

    Try searching for a 'PU' leather sleeve, that's what most of the inexpensive ones are made from

    Compare the websites emblem to the one on yours, looks like it to me. The price on these are much more than what you say you paid for your, but maybe they got big and started charging more since you got your original...???
