    You’re the only blogger I can say I actually say makes me chuckle at when I read your blog. Thank you!

    Ohmygoodness! That shop is a treasure trove of all things old and lovely!! I really wish I could visit it! I’m sure I’d find my Christmas present there!!

    The sconces are perfect for your home! So glad you got them!! Now you need a big and glittery hanging light in your parlor!

    Patience and persistence are our rewards. SO, here’s the question of the day–is said gentleman still purveying fanciness on South? Inquiring minds want to know. And visit…

    Would love to hear your recommendations for lightbulbs that look most like gas light (ok, that’s not really possible) or at least look reasonable in converted gas light fixtures. The very popular Edison revival bulb is the wrong look.

    Wonderful post! Thank you for the stroll down memory lane. We lived in Mt. Airy in the 70s and have several stained glass windows I bought on South Street, the mecca of antique shops along with Pine Street back in the day. I also bought two lamps with majolica bases (sold, unfortunately when I left my majolica stage.) xo

    I was in Philadelphia last month and was trying to find C Neri where I has scored an amazing chandelier 10 years ago and was really bummed to find it boarded up. Did he close? He had everything in there. It was a wonderland. So pleased to see your lovely ormolu sconces in place, congratulations!
