OT re wind chimes

Post by John Rut » Tue, 23 Oct 2001 02:41:26



I think I did a ***  I went to a store that I frequent
off and on they had wind chimes on sale(they were
discontinueing them) anyhow I went back a few weeks later
they had three left 25% off I told the guy that I would take
em all if he would drop to 50% off he agreed, then I asked
him well in that case can I get 3 for the price of two, dang
if he didnt agree to that too!!! then he told the clerk to
only charge me for the two cheapest ones and give me the
more expensive one. anyway I ended up geting nearly 300.00
worth of wind chimes for 85.00 <GBG>

I see nothing wrong - I wish that store owner would open a
shop
here in Jersey.  But speaking of wind chimes, my DH brought
me a
very large set of bamboo windchimes from the Philippines ;-)

Okay June, where was the store?  I doubt if I can afford
them, but I'd like to see them.

It was in southside Bethlehem (PA).  Great store and I think there is one in
NJ also. I think it's called Home and Planet. I am positive the woman told
me the owner has a place in Jersey and I'll have to call to find out exactly
where and let you know.  There has been a big restoration project going on
here along the corridor of the former Bethlehem Steel. Lots of artisans,
galleries, performance centers for the arts. (Very near Lehigh Univ.) Used
to be the place (part of town) everyone was anxious to leave  and it may
soon become the  area too expensive to live .  *L* This is what I call a
boutique store filled with those unique things that we all love but hate to
spend so much for. Some really nice glass chimes there as well.You folks in
the NG have me  adding windchimes to my 'wish list'.. I'm afraid the DH is
going to cut my time spent with you people. ;-)

I use 78 quite frequently.  Is it far from there?  I do
remember the
coke furnaces at Bethlehem - that smell was most likely the
reason it
was undesirable.  Do you remember the name of the shop?

Hi Bonnie,
The place is called Home and Planet and if you type www.homeandplanet.com
guess what? *L*
DH said the long bar on the biggest chime (he called them wind "gongs") was
4 feet. Ok so I am taller, but suspended,  that bar looked 5' to me.

My goodness $300 worth of chimes, where will you hang them all? IMHO, wind
chimes aren't OT, they belong with ponds. ;o) ~ jan

yea there is something about the sound of falling water and
the tinkle of chimes -- I can go out to feed about 8 sit and
watch the fish for 10-15 minutes and when I get back in the
house its 3:00

That happens to me ALL the time.  Thought I was the only one, who could lose a
whole day and not know what happened to it.  LOL

what you don't realize is that the fish are mind controling
you... they put you into a trance then swap bodies with you so they
can go out and party....

Have you been dieting and still notice that you are gaining weight?
it's the fish... everyone knows that fish will overeat.

Ever find dirt under your fingernails? that's when they dig for
worms...

can't trust them... unless you wear hpdm over your head... since your
body is 90% water, they just think your an inverted pond and ignore
you...

Jeeze John, that sure explains a lot.  I'm sure glad you
