Some say something good happens to good people when they least expect it. Amen!
One day, upon the recommendation of a new friend, I checked out this nearby shop for its workmanship. Upon entering, this shopkeeper-artisan entertained me straight away like an old friend. I just said that I was just looking around a small crucifix to add to my old but newly acquired necklace (?). He immediately recognized it as silver and gently offered to clean it for me. What a nice gesture, I thought immediately. While he was cleaning, he allowed me to take photos. And it gave me a chance to spot something that I liked. He also showed me what he was working on.
I wonder how this shop could manage when there’s hardly any customer. Maybe there are better times and days than when I dropped in. I hope so. Afterall, a good and honest man deserves many good patrons. Regret that he does not have an email address nor a website.
