Our wallet chain customers are typically pretty happy with their purchase. As a result, they tend to want to wear their chains everywhere. Occasionally we hear stories of panic however when a customer tries to take their chain onto an airplane, or to a concert, or some other event where maybe security doesn't allow such items.

Do yourself a favor, if you wear a wallet chain on the regular, be smart and have a plan. If you're getting on an airplane the TSA only allows wallet chains in your checked bags or in your carry on. If you're headed to a concert maybe consider a front pocket wallet without a chain. At least one of our customers has successfully worn his chain as a necklace into a concert so that's definitely an option too! The last thing you want is to be denied entry to a show you paid good money to see because you don't want your chain confiscated,and you don't have time to walk all the way back to your car to lock it up.

We know our wallet chains are high quality, and when you own one you'll want to show it off. But you should always be mindful of what your plans are for the day when you're carrying a heavy duty length of chain at your waist. Do yourself a favor, and have a plan.

Springtime in Springfield

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...
