Come in, come in, and welcome! See something you like? Looking for anything in particular? Oh, no problem, no problem. Just look, and let me know if I can help with anything.
Yes, that is a fine piece. Retrieved and fixed that one up myself. Yes, I do my own work. Learned the trade from my father and he from his father before him. That’s right. Sort of a hereditary business. My boy’s not really interested, but my daughter—she’s only seven—she seems to have the interest and, what is more, the gift. It isn’t everybody who can spot shattered hopes and scattered dreams and tell the worthwhile ones from the flotsam, but she has got a promising eye.
Ah yes, I like that piece as well. It is one of my daughter’s favorites. Really shiny. Prima Ballerina. Picked it up after a car wreck. I think the fractures throughout it really add to the beauty, don’t you? I don’t think I would like it as well if I had seen it before it was broken and fixed back up. I am sure the young lady who had that dream would have preferred to keep it unbroken, of course. Thank you. Yes, it is another one of my pieces.
