Q: I have read your column for years and it is one of my favorite parts of the Sunday paper. I love knowing where I can find it even when I’m not looking for the item in question. This has taken me to some way cool stores, and for that I thank you. I was recently in Panama and brought home a beautiful mola. I am looking for somewhere to have this beautiful art framed. It is a three, possibly four, piece fabric of reverse appliqué. Thank you very much. Marian Shepard, Decatur
A: Thank you for reading, Marian. I have two recommendations where you can get the appliquéd panel from your mola blouse framed. Rose Squared Custom Framing, 111 Clairemont Ave., Decatur, 404-377-1414, is owned by framer and illustrator, JD Isaacs, who’s been framing in downtown Decatur for 18 years. According to Isaacs, he has framed a variety of objects and he could even “frame your grandmother if she sits still long enough.” You might also consider The Moog Gallery, 1653 McLendon Ave., Atlanta, 404-668-9678. This locally owned Candler Park shop has experience in framing unusual objects from flags to vintage shoes.
Q: Would you help me locate Alexandra de Markoff’s Fresh eye cream? QVC has it as an out-of-stock item. Thank you. W. Howell, Atlanta
A: While it’s missing on QVC, Fresh eye cream, which contains yarrow and Indian cress, also is no longer featured on the Alexandra de Markoff’s website — in fact, it’s pretty much unavailable everywhere. However, I found stock through ellexclusive.com, but the price is about double what you’re used to paying. A 1-ounce bottle of Fresh eye cream costs $103.98.
Q: I fell in love with this lamp as they were selling the last one at the store that day. It is Bridgeport Designs pulley floor lamp, #1900120. Costco told me they were getting more in the next week. I returned and they were not there, I was told to come back again. They were not there, again. I asked Costco customer service, they did not have any info. I’ve Googled Costco, Bridgeport Designs and eBay. Anything that I see that is similar is not as nice, and costs minimally $400. Thanks for any help. Angela Parker, email
A: Angela, I found a lamp that looks like the twin of the image you sent. The Douthit 70-inch floor lamp by Williston Forge is designed with an adjustable pulley system, and comes clad in a dark bronze finish like the one Costco used to stock. It’s currently available for $157.99 through wayfair.com.
Q: I’m looking for a fragrance diffuser by Morgan Childs. It’s electric and you put essential oil in it. This diffuser also has different colored lights. I want to use it in a guest bathroom as a night light. I’m having trouble finding it. Please help if you can. Thank you. Lucy Smith, Alpharetta
