Show and Tell Friday is hosted by the very talented Kelli at There is No Place Like Home
About two months ago I saw a white painted wood corner cabinet in the local consignment shop. At this shop the price goes down the longer the item is in the shop. The lowest price of $69.99 was for January 4, 2009. A customer may leave a check in the amount of whatever price point you wish to pay. If no one buys it at a higher price, then you may get the piece. Otherwise your undeposited check is returned to you.
I went in on January 2 and to my delight it was still there. I handed over my money and promised to return on January 4 with my brother to pick it up. Just as I went in the door on Sunday around 2 p.m., I swung around and saw a couple coming in behind me. My brother’s teenaged son helped the owner take my cabinet out to their car. After they had stowed it in the car, the owner told me that the couple had just asked to buy the corner cabinet. He told them that I had bought it and was taking it right then!
Here it is in the corner of the dining room where I had had a bookcase on which I stored the pink and white English, German and American dishes. The unit is white with black metal hinges, gold knobs and gilt brass pull on the drawer. I hope to have it painted to match the dining room walls and to change the hardware.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my thrifty storage find. Visit more Show and Tell at There is No Place Like Home.
