I have wanted a vintage gold Marshwood frame for years, and finally took the plunge. The frame has been made to fit very well, and prescription lenses are on order. Thank you – as also for your thoughtful help with tracking the consignment.

About

Once upon a time,

There was a dog, a cat and a human.
One day, the human tried to set up the about page on Etsy, and certain parts were mandatory. He had little to say, so he made up a little un-story and put it here.
Later on, he thought he might add to the story.
We dabble in photography, gardening and horticulture.
Lovers of dogs, cats, insects, gaia, and numbers ( sevens and thirteen particularly ), our collections span almost every area you can imagine. If you have an area of interest, feel free to inquire and we will explore our expansive collection to see if we might have what you seek.
Some of our items are rare as vampires teeth.
As fellow participants in the infinite dance, we greet you.
