Leaving today at 5:00pm

Posted by John Johnson on Friday, April 29, 2011,
There will be no piercing services today after 5:00pm.  One of my great clients gave me tickets for boxing.  I'll be back to normal hours tomorrow (Saturday 4 / 30).  Remember there's currently no piercing on Sundays or Mondays.  My client Anthony Stevenson came in today with a copy of his science fiction novel "Morningstar" which is now available in Kindle.  Anthony is an awesome guy and if you have a Kindle and read sci-fi I'm sure you'll love his book.

Summer's almost here.

What a great Friday here at the shop.  A lot of people are going to be disappointed...the white gold navel curve with the heart shaped cz sold today for only $200.  If you're looking for gold for any of your piercings come in and see what I have in stock. I can also special order a piece for you. 

Also, I'm tracking a lot of data about what my clients are buying and in the last couple weeks I've sold mostly nostril jewelry and I'm not surprised that cz (cubic zirconia) is not as popular as us...
