French wire Eiffel Tower


I was so excited at the end of this week because I had found this great French wire Eiffel tower custom made in France for a restaurant. A guy that worked for the owner of the restaurant offered to sell it to me. So, here it is and it was in our store for a nano second before it sold. I'm happy that the customer wanted it, (she was soooooo happy walking it up to the counter), but I always feel a little cheated when I can't enjoy a great item a little longer than a day. Oh, well. That's why I buy merchandise, for our customers and the best feeling ever is when they love what we bring in. Sigh.

Thought I'd share the real thing below. Breathtaking, isn't it?

I looked long and hard before I found one liked.

Glenda,
Believe me, I thought of keeping it myself. I am in business, though, love to see happy customers.
If you ever get down to San Diego, come visit us. You'd love Ocean Beach, great little town with lots of antique shops.
Best,
Cordelia
