This lovely OVAL table was bought at an auction at the little town we went antiquing in. As we went into town we saw the auction sign...stopped to see what they were going to auction off and came across this table. We have a small eating/dining area right off the galley kitchen and I have been looking for just the perfect table since we moved in. I have bought a couple different tables (from sales) and they just weren't the right ones....
This one is just PERFECT and it has a nice leaf to put in for more seating. This table is 40 x 50 inches. It's made by Drexel Heritage from Dayton's. It's in super shape and also has pads. When we were waiting for them to auction the furniture...OTHER'S were "checking out the table"... I wasn't sure we were going to get it. We had a limit of what we were willing to spend...the auctioneer started the bidding at 400.00....then dropped it 300.00 then our price...200.00 and hubby raised our number and it was ours!!! The "other's" were a little surprised as the other furniture was going for $1.00 and up...yup...nice wing back chairs went for $1.00...bedroom set $25.00...and they had 2 other dining sets...a cute little table with 4 chairs that was drop leaf $25.00...if we had the space and a trailer to haul the stuff home...we would have bought more furniture to resell.
Below are treasures from the antique stores. All for the booths and great prices. Sock monkey always sell quickly. The Lu-Ray cup and saucers were 5.95 less 50% off!!! and most of the other items were just a few dollars each.
CUTE..."HAPPY MEDIUM" shoe forms below. $1.00 each...YUP... too fun!!
This is the best anniversary I've had. Hubby REALLY surprised me!!! HOW BLESSED I AM!!!
If the computer hadn't taken SO LONG to upload these photos...I'd tell you more about the day...I'll save that for later this week. As we were loading the furniture up...we were SO HOT!!!
When we got home after 8 PM we learned that it was 97 that day...no wonder we were sweating!!! It was also in the 90's today...
Thank you all for your well wishes for our Anniversary!!! I still have to share the stinky carpet store and going to "school"....and I have been working...a paid job with my new business of Clutter control, decorating and cleaning. I'm doing a "clutter control" job and will finish up tomorrow...or wait...it's already Thursday AM....
Good Morning!!!! I'm off to bed.
