Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy.

A girlfriend and I went north yesterday, on the hunt for used furniture. Now, I'm not the person who is in the right place at the right time. Those fantabulous Craigslist finds? Nope, not me. Awesome furniture out on the curb? Where the heck do you live?

BUT yesterday we wandered into a used furniture store and what to my wondering eyes did appear? One of these! (this image is from http://ashleydickson.com)


My heart leaped! My heart SANG! I've wanted a card catalog forEVER. It was a bargain but I wasn't sure I should spend the money ....... so we left. And came back. The owner of the store was there and I asked him what his best price would be and he said $100. I was speechless. I only see these large pieces at $800 and up. He said for that price we had to haul it home - he wouldn't deliver. Well, home was 100 miles away, so whatever. We knew delivery wasn't an option.

I wish I had taken pictures of getting this thing into my car, which already had a stained glass window and a sewing machine cabinet in it. Holy cow. We actually stopped a young man walking down the street and asked him to help. Later this morning, when it is light, I'll take pictures of getting this behemoth OUT of my car. yikes

Stay tuned.
