Quince can make any kind of clothing to order, from a simple jerkin to elaborate vestments. He buys cloth from passing merchants and just as regularly sells finished garments to others. A long-time resident, Quince originally lived in a slightly larger building but switched with Jocelyn, the tanner in order to give her more room for the bulky hides that make up her stock-in-trade. He and Jocelyn are currently courting, and their neighbors expect a wedding before the year is over. Quince is a cheerful fellow, much smarter than he looks, and given to whistling tunes as he works.
