Barnacle Bill: nick
Maz Carr: also known as came & gone - he came tok your money for basket and then was gone always turning up to deliver "after" the buyer had left. He died a few years back now down in Barranco.
Madalon Richardson: The old Hotel Seine Bight bought a lot of stuff from him. We still have several trays- -which we still use and quite a few baskets. However he did get us when he asked us to bring him a bible from the states- -and we found out he sold it on the same day he got it.
Lynn Jackson: I knew Mr. Nick left SB ..but I never knew where he went or that he passed away. I always paid him up front for materials, but he always finish the basket work he promised.
Tani Bevier Hopkins: the business got the best of him!~ lol~ I have two from way back when.
Wade Bevier: Ah yes, Dear Nick... I'll leave it at that!
