By breaking it in half? That’s not the real way to do it,” the woman said. “You go through all the process to make something. You build it from scratch.”
On the day that I visited her shop, my son-in-law, who lives in the neighborhood, visited me to show me how she makes her pennies, and the process of making them. What followed was a long walk through her shop that led to a small white building in the middle of the street. Her shop is painted with a dark, smoldering yellow, and it made for a very romantic visit to our house, as it was a place where we had fun together.
There is a sign behind the counter that says,
Welcome to Cottage City Coins, the oldest coin and treasure shop in Portland. We accept most major credit cards! We are an all ages-friendly store!
Here’s what’s on the counter on the left: a small table covered with various pieces including coins in various pieces. The table is covered with a red cloth, to show that it’s an antique coin room and not a place where kids would run into things. The shop is divided into sections with various walls and ceilings. On the wall to the right is the back of her desk. “This is where I make the coins,” Ms. Williams said.
The other section is the same as the front, but instead of the coins, it includes a glass cabinet filled with all sorts of antique and custom pieces, including some with pictures of animals and a table with a book, a chair and a piano. If you’re going to spend an afternoon here, I would highly recommend getting the book “Inventing Portland.” It will make you feel at home.
The floor in the back of the shop is a beautiful green. It’s a floor I think you’d find at a great art gallery. I think it would make a great home for your coins, though, since you can’t make them. And the ceiling looks great as well.
I stopped by a few times during my visit. Most of the times, I was looking for the penny I would be making. Ms. Williams, who took my coins, had a little shelf with her pennies on display. She always had an inventory on her face, which she kept neat and tidy. I noticed the penny I was making was gone. So I told her I didn’t see what I was doing with it. She said
