A great little shop for wonderful pins and zipper pulls, All local designs and well made. Worth the walk up the long flight of stairs to the shop. Owner/design on site and very helpful

Thanks for the kind words. The reward for those stairs is the great selection of designs by Bill that has taken him 35 years to design. All of the designs are available on line at wmspear.com if the stairs are too intimidating.
