    Hi All,

    I just stopped by Pasquale today, and I was sorely disappointed. I recently moved back to southern California after being in NYC for a few years, and went there based on recommendations on the forum. I wanted the people to do some relatively simple patina work on a pair of Berlutis and I wanted some flush metal toe caps. They were unable to handle either of these requests. I know B Nelson does the flush metal toe caps, and I used to take my stuff there all the time. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good cobbler in LA who can handle patina, flush metal toe caps, full recrafts, etc? I would like to keep using B Nelson, but I'm on a tighter budget now and paying for shipping back and forth isn't all that sensible.

    B Nelson covers shipping when you're doing a resole.
