A sweet and kind man passed away this week. He was a shopkeeper down the street from our condo. He ran a consignment/antiques establishment and given my proclivity for all things "vintage" I'd met him many times. Most recently I found myself in need of a book and with no cash. Without hesitation he said, "take it, you'll be back." And I was. When I finally made it back, cash in hand (oh the holidays!) we chatted for awhile - about vintage china, the history of the plates I was buying - that I had coveted for over 2 years - and the best way to care for a better made product in a shoddily constructed world.

During that conversation, while he insisted on individually wrapping my brand "new" green glass dinner plates with sectional dividers, we chatted about many things. I don't remember many exacts of what we exchanged, just how nice it was to talk to someone clearly enjoying his life, a rare find in these parts.

He was only 67 when he passed away and easily twice my age but he wasn't creepy or over the top, just a sweet old man, seemingly surrounded by things he enjoyed and with a twinkle in his eye. While he was ringing me up, I said something that made him laugh - a nice hearty laugh and he told me, "oh I just love you I can tell! We are going to be great friends." I smiled and said I hoped so as I hoisted my individually wrapped box of plates. He got the door for me and we bid farewell. And that was it.

We didn't really have a chance to be better friends because here I am writing about his passing far too soon after the plates purchase, but I like to think we would have been good neighbors. Despite our short lived camaraderie, his passing affected me and I think that is a testament to the power of a nice and positive person. So for Mr. Winslow's sake - smile at someone today, go treasure hunting, hold a door, and for god's sake - never put china in the dishwasher.

Being an avid reader of history and politics,I always knew,I could count on Wild Sage to have the most interesting selection. Jeff was so pleasant to talk with and a plethora of knowledge. I will miss seeing the sidewalk wares that were displayed. He will be missed and North Street will not be the same without him,and taking a moment to stop in to chat.

I miss Jeff and every time I walk past Wild Sage I will always remember him. He was so kind to me when I came into the store to look around and purchase an item or two. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and all who got to meet and talk to him. God Bless. Leslie

To Jeff's Family,

I was deeply saddened to learn of Jeff's passing. I always enjoyed wandering through his store. He was very friendly. I had no idea he was from Central NY.

My condolences to all of you.
