Yesterday, I had to be at a meeting in area of Maine where I have spent little time. And, so I headed off at the appointed time to arrive before the appointed time, and proceeded to engage in a fairly detailed presentation on digital micro-credentials and education.
As the meeting came to an end, attendees said their good byes, and I was about to begin the drive back home, when I gave a quick search of antique stores in the area, and there was one just a mile or so from our meeting location.
And, they were open!
So, I made my way over, and after finding parking made my way inside. An amazingly full shop, there was stuff piled everywhere–not in a hoarding type of way, just a very very full type of way.
And, as I made way through, I noticed lots of ceramics, glass, and figurals. LOTS!
As I turned a corner, I did see a corkscrew, just sitting there amongst some jewelry.
I asked the owner if I could see the piece, and he promptly handed it to me.
At 45 dollars, it was a pretty good deal.
We set that one on the counter, and proceeded to look around the shop for others.
Nope, there was exactly one corkscrew available.
That said, apparently the owner has a second location, and has LOTS of smalls. That shop is only open one day a week, and unfortunately, not yesterday. Still, I will make a visit the next time I am in the area.
As it happened, by the time I got to the register to pay, the cost of the corkscrew dropped by 10 dollars.
And, I didn’t even ask for the discount, it was just written up that way.
I thanked the owner of the shop for the deal, and headed for Rockland.
Oddly enough, just the other day, I picked up a different pair of legs. This version a tri-colored pair with half flesh.
The tri-color is available for trade, if anyone is interested. Whatcha got?
