I took this photo a few weeks ago while out treasure hunting with one of my partners.
I must admit that I'm looking forward to being a "Shop Girl" though one of the perils of running a shop is being tempted the whole day through by certain treasures that keep calling out your name.
The day my partner, Tom, put out this wonderful old french wire 3 tiered stand I was impressed. I loved the way it looked atop the mighty industrial table I found that was used in the new movie about Hemingway and his first wife, "Hemingway & Gellhorn", that was shot here in the Bay Area.
I did my best to simply admire it and was successful for several days until my friend Lisa popped in with a friend and noticed it. She picked it up and announced, "this is good, reaally good!"
Well, that was all it took for me to figure out a reason why I needed it. That evening when I arrived home the reason was sitting right on my counter!
It was definitely time for an upgrade, my number one rationalization, after all my husband had been complaining that our current 3 tiered stand was too big and taking up way too much room on the counter and so...
My first purchase from
has found the perfect home!
