Antiques always held mysteries for me. I imagined stories these items could tell, and the shops that displayed these treasures beckoned me. I was interested in buying a replacement lamp. My daughter and I were also looking for 1950s era suitcases, finding a matching set of three, exactly what we wanted.
While browsing, I fell instantly in love with a lamp that had crystalline pieces hanging from the lighted part, above the base of the lamp. Any slight movement and the glass shards made a tinkling sound. I listen to them today, wondering who enjoyed these chimes long ago.
