Pull up a stool and let's talk!



This shot was taken before Serendipity Market, it gives a partial view of my favorite item in the store....a 12 foot antique table that once resided in the cafeteria of a Catholic Boy's School. It's early 1900s, has 14 swing out stools (7 on each side), and took 4 super strong guys to get it into the store (without the top!)!!

It's heavy, filled with history, and is truly amazing! No doubt about it, it is one of the current conversation pieces of the store!! Even has some of the old gum stuck to the underside of the table top.....love it!

It will be a bittersweet day when this one sells!

Great table! We have an old 18th century French cherry farm table..pull out ends with lots of little dips and imperfections in the wood. I wouldn't part with it for anything! I don't envy you when it sells...the good ones are hard to let go!

OH MY GOSH...this is just torture. Your store is just fabulous. You have such a great way of staging. Keep the eye candy coming...
