Notes From the Road – part I

Roycroft Hammered Brass Arts & Crafts Bookends (LEO Design)

For the next several days, I’ll be on the road—hunting for “Handsome Gifts” throughout New England.  Kismet plays a role, of course, but I will keep an eye open for great Father’s Day gift ideas—like the “find” pictured above: a pair of hand-hammered copper Roycroft bookends, finished in their “Old Brass” patina.  Simple, elegant, and stylish, they would be a handsome addition to Dad’s den, bookshelf or office desk.

These bookends—and all of the coming week’s finds—should be in-store and ready for your perusal by Monday 18 May.  Keep an eye on the daily Journal or look through the on-line shop (they will be listed as quickly as possible).  Better yet, come into the shop to see them—and all of my great finds—in-person.

More from the road tomorrow.
