Five years ago there was a set of doors that was removed from a structure in a South American city. The doors were placed in a cargo container and transported over sea and rail for several weeks until they finally arrived at our warehouse in Scranton. Here they were removed from the container, dusted off, and photographed before being slid between other doors of similar size and stature, and left in storage for the time. The photographs were posted on our web store.
There these doors stood, over crowded and unappreciated, for many months. The shadows of passing customers would cast onto the frame, light would bounce from admiring faces that would only walk on to leave the magnificent portal untouched. Until finally, near the eve of Christmas, 2006, a returning customer was browsing our web store and caught a glimpse of a thumbnail, and decided to purchase the entryway.
