Well, while it is not Spring time quite yet, I thought I’d share this with you. I’ve quite a soft spot for collections of things like this. It is probably a throwback to my days of taking things apart in my childhood and teenage years, keeping the bits and using them later in fixing various things. On various shelves in my bedroom, I’d have jars of screws, springs, resistors, capacitors, and so forth.
I passed this shop in Madrid. I think that the name was something like “Spring”, but I might not be remembering right. The point is that it seems to be almost entirely filled with springs. Excellent! I took these shots while standing outside looking in at the display windows, so sorry about the reflections.
