Amazement fits in a box!

WaxyAxle stopped in to make a special delivery of the mystery box from France and share a few stories of his time spent with Jim.  It was great fun for me to hear about the fun they had and about Jim's work shop.  And as a super bonus for me, I have received from Jim one of his fantastic custom made wooden spintops (I'm impressed with the performance of the costume jewelery spike tip--it is a great step up from pop rivets for an off-the-shelf item used as a top tip), one of Philippe's true finger spinners (I really like seeing the balancing holes--he is a real master), a length of Jim's custom made spintop string in candy cane colors, and a metal spun Neptuno top from Trompos Space.  That's a lot of fun packed in a small space, thank you very much Jim, these spintop treats are all wonderful.  I didn't think it was possible but now I'm looking forward to your visit to the US with even more excitement.
