I got a white and gold porcelain handled ink blotter that did not survive the trip home. I opened my suitcase, unwrapped a sweater and there was the blotter, in a million little pieces. So sad. I'll be on the hunt for another one eternally.
This record was playing a charming tune that I forgot to ask the name of.
The back room had cozy arm chairs and portraits up on the wall. It was dimly lit and felt like a relatives den. It was a place to shop yes, but also very welcoming.
I talked to the man who runs the shop, telling him how my brother in law would love this place. They have cowboy shirts, classic shaving cream, fine ties, and beer and pretzel caramels. He was really sweet and if we weren't starving I would have stayed for hours. The funny thing is, he and brother in law have the same name- nat! Not a name you hear every day :) One day I'll have to introduce them.
He was so sharply dressed I couldn't resist asking for a photo. He obliged and I clicked away- a true gentleman! This shop is definitely the place to find a one of a kind gift. I can't wait to visit again to see what "new" things they have in store.
A must see:
