Shopping for the Home



I had my eye on this round shelf for a few months. It's from Pier 1 Imports. All the ones I saw had damage of some sort and I couldn't get a good enough discount to justify a damaged one. Then, one lucky day, I went back in and the salesman found a perfect one for me. I asked if it was on sale and he said it was not, but when he rang it up, it rang up on sale, much to both our delights.

It's on the wall above my piano. It will hold ivory carvings that my grandparents bought in Hong Kong when my mom was in her early teens, but until I'm sure my cats won't bother them, it holds non-breakables. The picture doesn't do it justice or show that it's actually 30" in diameter.
