In an on-going attempt to spiff up our place, Barry and I have been on the lookout for some end tables for our sofa. Not a hunt, just a lookout. While Barry and I were out the other evening, finally trying the lamb burger at Mint/820 that we've heard so much about, we thought we'd spotted the perfect tables in a new-to-us shop across the street that was closed for the night. (As an aside, after splitting one lamb and one beef burger, Barry and I declare beef the winner.) Anyhow, we ventured back to Russel Street during the shop's open hours. Turns out the tables weren't right for us, but the shop is a sweet little gem of lovely curiosities with a cute little cafe tucked in the back. You ought to visit Lowell at 819 N. Russell. Actually, you ought to visit this blog post about the shop first, as the photos there are far better than mine. And then go out and see the real thing.
