"We have the nicest customers in the world." She said many of their clients even bring photos of their homes to the store to illustrate how they've used their decorative purchases.

The couple said they're more than willing to special order any- thing that's not already in stock, if its available. They said the most popular areas of their showroom are the kitchen and bathroom, closely followed by the living room. Another interesting feature of the showroom is found in the pa- tio section. That's where Frank and Heather have displayed the "Admiralty Anchor." The distinc- tive landscaping ornament is an exact replica of a working anchor. The hollow anchor, constructed Of a sturdy and sleek black alu- minum, will never rust and can be shipped anywhere in the United States. The most unique part about the Admiralty Anchor, though, is the fact that its inventor is Frank Cas- sidy. "When we moved down here, I wanted one for my front yard," he said. "They don't make them any- more, and even if you did find one it would weigh seven or eight hundred pounds." Frank said he drew up plans for the anchor, talked with an attor- ney, and had his idea patented. The anchor is on display and for sale at the store for $600. He said he's sold six of the unique land- scaping ornaments so far.
