Durdel’s is a classic “corner guitar shop,” small in size but with good selection. They carry Paul Reed Smith,. Peavey, Reverend, Godin, and all the major brands. Yet what is really terrific is that they also carry guitars made by Denny Kopp, a Toledo area luthier. His guitars (mainly jazz oriented, although the Kopp 419 Blue Collar model could easily play blues or rock n’ roll) feature names that evoke the Toledo music scene, including the “Tedrow” guitar. Tedrow refers to the street that used to be the home of Rusty’s, an old jazz club that was home to many jazz greats, local and touring.

At times tea was valued at almost a month’s wages for a pound of the dried leaves. It was stored in special lock boxes, and the lady of the house was the only one entrusted with the precious key. So precious a commodity in fact that serving tea became a ritual, something to be properly taught and practiced by all of good breading.
If you don’t have a craft store in your area, or a department store that sells jewelry supplies, check a home improvement store. You’ll fitness evolution metal washers and other metal pieces that are perfect for making the earrings. Just make sure the pieces you choose are very thin, and not too heavy for the magnet.
