Two Pieces For Resale

The drum table belonged to Rose's Aunt. One leg was broken and another was cracked with a very bad repair. I fixed them as best I could and refinished the top

The chair was bought at an estate sale and we recovered it. Funny story, there were two chairs. The little old lady had owned an antique store here in High Springs. This chair we bought for $35. The other matching chair was amateurishly reupholstered and she was sure it was worth $150. We offered to buy both for $70. I hated to break up the pair but she wouldn't come down on her price. We also bought two matching, vintage and fully upholstered slipper chairs with dressmaker skirts. $35 each. That was two years ago. I'll bet she still has that other chair. 




There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

You could pass down the drum table - hold on to it !   It is dated but the quality is there - the chair will sell quickly

We were given the table 20 years ago and its been in storage the whole time. We have no nieces or nephews on Roses side. Her aunt had a daughter with two boys. No one is interested. Rose decided its time to sell it.

From what I see in the market around here, the chair with geometric pattern probably would
sell. 

The interest of that still seems to be running strong.  Just yesterday I noted a certain office of a business
had a considerable interest in geometric patterns - the colors were up to date also.
