Help please!

A friend of mine collects paperweights -- it's her obsession and her birthday is coming up soon.

What I'm wondering is if any of you know of a great place for paperweights -- a shop or online place that offers unusual ones... she has so many of them I have to find something unique.

I could search the web looking for online stores that sell them, but I'm hoping one of you have seen some locally and can recommend based on actually seeing their quality in person.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cat! those are perfect! I totally forgot about that glasshouse.... just called them and will probably get one from there.

YAY! Thank you!



Noxx, good call, but I think Georgie Porgie's not for sale -- yet.

actually, I think you should give her a whole bunch of old papers...
I mean she needs to put the paperweights she already has to good use....
