    it is entirely possible that i’ve never wanted a shelf as much as i covet this!! *swoon*

  2. the scholar Says:

    hi kelly,

    that big shelf is $799, which i think is a pretty competitive price if you are researching furniture/storage of that size. and it doesn’t look like it’s going to fall apart anytime soon either.

    i could go nuts thinking about it too, but i just force it out of my mind. 🙂

    thanks for the visit — tgif lady!

  3. sosser Says:

    i love that book shelf so much i would marry it.

  4. the scholar Says:

    sosser!

    aHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    (not a bad idea actually)

  5. Electro^Plankton Says:

    You’re right. Absolutely stunning.

  6. the scholar Says:

    hello electro,

    i think these shelves would be a nice place to showcase all that cool stuff YOU write about!

    thanks for the visit! 🙂

    Mad love for that bookcase!

  8. the scholar Says:

    hi larkyn,

    we need to form a commune here and furnish the house with these shelves, since everyone is in consensus here. 🙂

    thanks for stopping by!

  9. Laura Says:

    Okay, it’s not available anymore through Wisteria!!! How can I get this bookcase?

  10. the scholar Says:

    hi laura,

    well, that sucks that it is no longer available there. i would call or email to see if it is going to come back in. after my google search today i could not find any other places that carry those specific items, but maybe a search on eBay will yield something similar.

    good luck!
