  • Selling Leo Mol ceramics...

    And he came into the shop one day, and I was fortunate that I was in the shop, and not just a day worker didn't let him get away. And he was bringing in a little Manitoba robin. And robin is basically, we like to think in Winnipeg, that its a beautiful bird. And Leo Mol's robin was absolutely exquisite, to my mind it was beautiful. And it was exactly what a shop, or Winnipeg, would love to have. And Leo Mol's robin was perfect. It was just.... I shouldn't say that. I let it get away from me. I took so many orders in the shop that I never got to get one before he stopped doing them.
