Here we are. In Minneapolis.
While in town for The Creative Connection Event, I scored big-time in the lighting department. Jenny and I decided to take a morning off for shopping, and stopped into Guilded Salvage Antiques.
You remember how I was considering a chrome schoolhouse fixture for the bathroom? Well, this type of fixture was in abundance here. (Guilded Salvage specializes in lighting and locks, with lots of other pretties along the way.)
We didn’t have a lot of time, and I think I could have spent more time browsing.
I eventually settled on two brass (soon to be black) semi-flush fixtures for the stairway and hallway and a chrome semi-flush fixture for the bathroom. They were wired by the store’s proprietor, who was quite a character. (He spent a good amount of time trying to convince me to keep our boilers.)
You can see part of one of the light fixtures above. More to see when we get them installed.
If you are ever in Minneapolis, Guilded Salvage is a must-see. The displays are clean and attractive, which is unique in a store of this kind. You don’t see boxes of junk here. It’s a joy to browse.
Do you have a must-visit local store in your neck of the woods?
