Notes From the Road – part III

English Brass Donkey Bottle Opener (LEO Design)

Besides finding wonderful and handsome gifts for my shop, being in England this week provides me another benefit:  I am avoiding the constant scrum of the current political fracas. Though I am, admittedly, a committed partisan, I nevertheless cannot wait for 8 November to come and go.  And I’m sure I’m not alone!

Finding this little fellow—a cast brass bottle opener—has (momentarily) pulled me up short.  Made in Canada in the 1950’s or 1960’s, he reminded me of all the fun I was missing while overseas.  But I cannot remain mad at him for long.  He’s so darn cute!

Please come into the shop to see him when he arrives.  He—and all of my recent acquisitions—should be in-store and ready for your perusal by 20 October.
