Pressing Questions, Answered

Posted by on

A number of you now, some returning customers, others who stumbled upon the shop, or the first installment of the story of Fenn, have reached out in private to ask me questions. They are generally along the lines of: Just what is it you’re doing here? Is any of what you say true? You must be making it up. Who makes the stuff in your shop, really? Where are you getting it from?  And variations on the same. I thought it high time to give you an answer. As for the first question the answer is both simple and complicated....

Posted by on
