I did this trip right before we closed on the house.  One last time to see old friends before I have the house.  In living in the Twin Cities I got to know a lot of places to look for antiques.  I scoured the city in looking of the right windows for the house.  I wanted to bring some old world charm back into this place and windows from 80 or more years ago have always have been special to me.  I went to one place I used to go to when I lived there and it had about a hundred windows to look through. I got the prism window there.   I found the stained glass window in a place I remember that salvaged architectual items.  They were on the pricey side, but did not have a lot of time to find the best deal and wanted some WOW for the house.  It deserves it.  Now I have to go back to my stained glass class at Light Haus to work on the windows.  I found a few new places from the show done in the Twin Cities called “Rehab Addict”.  She buyes old houses that are a “dollar” or foreclosed on.  The show is that she fixes up the homes as close to their original style.  She goes to these places to find things to fit in these homes again.  One is the Bauer Brothers in North of Mpls.  They are well worth the trip just to see the great things.  The prices are not that bad for the selection.
