Metal Shop

I don't want to get all endorsementy on you, but if there is one recommendation I would make for your holiday gift giving, it is this:

The National Ornamental Metal Museum's gift shop.

I spent a few years writing Memphis magazine's Fabulous Finds column (which featured six retail products each month) and if there was one thing I could depend on, it was that when winter rolled around, I could find wonderful, inexpensive gift items at the metal museum to feature: ornaments, mirrors, jewelry, pendulums (pendula? Sometimes the dictionary is no help at all), and all sorts of things.

I even gifted myself a couple of times.

NEXT Sunday, December 7th, the museum will host a holiday open house from 12 to 5 p.m. Members who mention the sale will get a 20 percent discount in the gift shop; non-members will receive 10 percent off. Holiday treats will also be provided throughout the day.

For more information on the museum or its classes (register by December 14th and get $50 off), click here.

For pendulum, the most common plural is pendulums, however both are considered correct.

Stacey, bhavani: I do what I can.

auto: Thanks! I can't wait to use pendulums in a sentence. Other than this one, that is.
