Sunday and more packing
Sunday, February 21, 2021
I had a great time with my friend yesterday. First we went to the estate sale as it opened at 9. I didn't find anything I wanted, but my friend found a nice marble table-top. Now he needs to find a base for it, but it will make a lovely coffee table.
Next stop was the lamp store in town as it opened at 10. Run by a very nice Swedish gentleman and his wife, the shop was fascinating. He not only sells lamps and shades and finials, he does repairs and sells parts. Then we went to the lamp store over in Belvedere as my friend had ordered a specific bulb from them for his piano lamp. I left a lamp there to be repaired, but decided that the other lamp was going to the shop in town as both of us were more impressed by them.
Onwards to Marengo for a quick stop for my friend to pick up something he ordered, then on the way back we stopped for me to return a couple accidental extra books at B&N. Then we took my second lamp to the lamp shop in town and talked to the owner about what it needed. He came up with the perfect shade for it and then I picked out a finial and he will call me when it's ready.
All in all, it was a lovely day for a drive - the sun was out and we both had fun. Now to get back to packing so I have more to take to the new house tomorrow after work.
