Did not realize a license was in order for all the venders. Rocco was the jeweler in the front of the building when you walked in just to the left. I saw some of his stuff and it looked pretty good. He showed me a couple of diamonds unset from the safe that had certificates with them. He was to stay until Feb. 1st, but did leave before.
