Good morning everyone! I spoke with Ron and Susan, owners of Armilla on Glenwood the other evening. They are opening this Saturday, November (sic) (recte October) 27th. They have taken down some of the paper that was covering theire (sic) windows, and it looks like they have some really nice items in the window! Stop by and say Hi and welcome them to the neighborhood! Looks like it is going to be a great addition to the shopping in the neighborhood!!"

Update - what the heck does Armilla specialize in or sell?

Answer - Vintage and Reclaimed treasures, Small furnishings, Lighting, Art glass, Pottery, Finds, Classics, Curiosities, Repurposed wares and Eclectic Furniture
Armilla - An armilla (plural armillae) was a gold[citation needed] armband awarded as a military decoration to soldiers of ancient Rome
AND An armillary sphere (variations are known as spherical astrolabe, armilla, or armil) is a model of objects in the sky (in the celestial sphere), consisting of a spherical framework of rings, centred on Earth, that represent lines of celestial longitude and latitude and other astronomically important features such as the ecliptic. As such, it differs from a celestial globe, which is a smooth sphere whose principal purpose is to map the constellations. (from wikipedia)
