The Cross House
So, y’all know that Cody has found several gas/electric sconces for the Cross House.
I “met” Cody in 2014 when he began leaving comments about an incredible house on Old House Dreams. Here. Prepare to gasp.
At the time, Cody was a teenager. He lived near the incredible house and was highly protective of it. I thought: Who is this kid with such a passion for old houses? I liked him right away.
The incredible house finally sold, and I would occasionally wonder: What happened to Cody?
A few years went by, and then someone named Cody left a comment on this blog. I replied: Are you THE Cody, from Old House Dreams?
A few months ago, Cody wrote me about an incredible score he made. On Facebook Marketplace, he came across an “old sconce” for $30. He liked it, and had a curious thought: Is this sconce by Tiffany?
It seemed impossible but Cody was not going to pass up the potential score of a lifetime. So, he drove three hours, paid for the sconce, and dove back three hours.
And he was pretty sure he had purchased a Tiffany sconce…for $30.
It thrills me that a young person is interested in such stuff.
Maybe humanity is not doomed!
