This is always an exciting time for Anvil. There are two excellent holidays right happening effectively right at the same time. Of course there is Halloween, but there is another. Día de Muertos often gets lumped in with Halloween in America and that's too bad. If you've never taken the time read up on the history of the celebration I recommend it. Ultimately what that means though is... an absolute TON of skulls...everywhere as far as the eye can see. And it's totally rad. If you haven't figured it out by now, we really really like skulls. No two artists will draw a skull the same way. Some have more attitude and character than others, but we love them all equally here in the shop. That's why we put them all over our stuff!

Right now our production times are nice and short but if everyone orders a gift for him at the last minute we'll be unable to guarantee delivery by the holiday. So get your orders in now folks! Consider purchasing one of these fine pieces...

Spring has sprung at the Anvil Customs Shop, currently located on Park Central Square, just off of historic Rt. 66 in Springfield Missouri. The traditional excitement of nice weather, and lively events are made extra special this year, as we climb our way out of a pandemic lock-down. We've always been more of a "by appointment" type of shop. Seldom do folks want to walk in off the street to buy premium leather goods. And the added length of production times generally means that it's just more efficient for everyone involved if a person makes a purchase off the website or via PayPal invoice. But the added caution to prevent the spread of the virus has meant that we've been particularly closed off from the general public over the last year...
