I decided to try the Basilica of the Shrine of
Mary and I looked and looked because thewere a lot of religious medals to look at. We had bought my current Scapular medal from this gift shop. We had no luck in our search. We asked a sales clerk for assistance and they couldn't find what I wanted either. I mentioned to the sales clerk that I might try The Abbey which is a Catholic gift shop/book store in Orlando. This is where I got Mary's Scapular medal which is solid gold and I had to special order it. I figured that they could order one for me of the style of Scapular medal that I liked. I was stunned when the sales clerk told me that The Abbey had closed in December. As you can see by the picture below, it was a cute little place with the little Friar Tuck painted on the wall beside the door.
I was running out of ideas. I asked the sales clerk if they could special order one in for me. She told me that they didn't like doing that. I told the sales clerk that we would pay for it in advance. She suggested that I call on Monday and ask for the girl who does the ordering for the gift shop. I feel like I am on a quest of sorts. On Monday I am going to call and hopefully they will be able to help me. Wish me luck. Lew
