There are a lot of antique stores and flea markets/junk stores around these parts--which I LOVE! I have been pretty impressed with the prices (for the most part) and the treasures that are out in plain view just ready to come home with me. But, as it goes, the item(s) I really want/
need are priced too high in my very. humble. opinion.
For too long, I've had my eye on a 1960s hutch (really like mid-century furniture), but the guy has the piece way overpriced and won't budge. I think it's kinda silly considering I've been in to view it at least two dozen times over the past two years and it hasn't moved an inch...it just sits there...and sits...and sits. Somethings gotta give! Come on, Man!
This is sort-of like the piece I'm eyeballing minus the glass and triangle detail plus some bumps and bruises that I'm okay with!
So, alas, I stopped to admire the lovely milk-glass. I have a small collection, but I'm picky about the pieces I bring home.
This trip, I bought a small bud vase.
But, the score of the day...
Two school desks at 15 bucks a pop!
In the Fall, I am home-schooling AG (a topic I'm sure to talk more about in the future). I have been wanting to transform our home-office into an office/school room and was beyond thrilled when I came across these desks. I haven't decided the direction I'm going with them just yet, but I'm excited to get the ball rolling! Any suggestions?
One more thing, I need pointers on how to get Mr."I'm not Budging on the Price of the Hutch" to come off of his high-horse and give me a better deal! I know I'm not caving or will I!?! :)
