Central Market between 6th and 7th street is a tableaux of transition: individuals getting their lives on track, new businesses starting up, and artists decorating vacant storefronts. Amidst this yearning for change is Piper’s Jewelers, where used items are bought and sold, and time seems to stand still.
No longer run by Mr. Piper, meet the family members that sell used jewelry, time pieces, and collectibles, and the man who was called in to repair the clock in the bell tower of Old St. Mary’s Cathedral.
