Steger Creek on Starkey Road has built a reputation on its collectibles and special gifts. On Wednesday the store is getting a special guest as a result of that reputation. Emanuele Fontanini will be in the store to meet customers and sign figures.
The name Fontanini might not ring any bells for everyone, but in the world of collectibles he’s a big deal. The Fontanini family became famous for crafting Nativity sets, which many people collect. The family has done this for more than 100 years creating life-like sculptured figures treasured by many collectors.
Steger Creek president Michael Pace was especially excited to have him come. He’s been in the specialty store business for more than two decades. People travel to stop in and see the store’s fine gifts and collectible selection, especially during the holidays.
The store is already taking orders for collectible fans wanting to purchase the exclusive figure available on Fontanini’s 2013 tour. Of course, Pace promises to have a wide selection of Fontanini figures.
