Now that's customer service!

On our return trip from Alaska yesterday, we had only minutes to spare to catch our connecting flight in Seattle.  A Delta agent surprised us on the jetway, whisked us down to the tarmac and into a Porsche Cayenne for a quick ride to our connecting flight.  It pays to keep all your air miles in one basket!

What word or words would you create using this set of 20 vintage zinc letters?

Relics is the exclusive retailer in Arizona for Santa Maria Novella, a wide range of home and body fragrance items from Italy.

    • smn 2016 2
We've recently extended our line of Santa Maria Novella. In addition to the classic favorites - the pot pourri and terra cotta pomegranate - we have added room sprays, talcum powders, shave cream, pot pourri jars, scented wax tablets and other items for you to luxuriate in. Santa Maria Novella is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. It was opened in Florence, Italy in 1612, taking the formulas of Dominican friars that originate from 13th century.

We're back safe and sound from our 58th buying trip abroad.

We felt especially protected on this trip by the guardian angels that made their way back to us. It's always good to be home.

Paint of the St. Nicholas Cathedral in Granada

 We purchased an oil painting of St Nicholas Cathedral in Granada this afternoon, painted in the 1930s. Afterwards, we had the pleasure of walking up to the Albayzin and taking in the same the view from the artists position.

Five years ago, we found these antique angels in Granada.  We bought them and hand packed them intending to bring them on the plane with us to return home.    Unfortunately, in our haste exiting a train and loaded with luggage, we left the package containing the angels on the train rack. We returned to the station late at night after realizing they were missing but the angels were long gone.  For years, we've wondered where the angels ended up until today when we visited the same source-when the owner saw us, he slipped into his office and came out with these two angels that had been sourced back to him.  He knew we had lost them and saved them for our next visit, so today we were reunited and this time they are flying home with us!

Beautiful Cordoba!

Great history, architecture, food & wine. Our first day in and we're inspired to design a community that incorporates some of these beautiful architectural details.
