After taking up some of the carpet at the Old House,
we knew we would need some type of trim piece
to transition from one level of flooring to another.
I have searched the wood trim sections of the home improvement stores.
I found nothing there and have described to employees
what I was looking for.
They have sent me to the sections with the ugly metal transition strips.
They are not what I am looking for.
Finally today, at yet another store,
I found a nice employee who was very knowledgable
and seemed to genuinely like helping customers.
He sent me to the right department where I did find the piece I needed
with the exact profile I wanted
and had been describing to everyone to no avail.
I was starting to think that I was making up something that didn't even exist.
I feel better now.
