I Spotted A Rather Poorly Worded Ad On Craigslist About An Estate Sale Sunday. Tried To Find It Since It Was Supposed To Be Close By. Status: Fail / Win!
I copy and pasted the address (but added "St. Louis Mo.") provided in the ad to Google search. It came up with a map showing a place nowhere near where the ad said it should be. I tried again without the "St. Louis Mo." and it came up with a map a little closer to what would make sense. And with that, we were out the door on a little mini adventure!
We drove to what I thought was the address but the address didn't seem to exist. It would have
been a giant blighted empty mall in north county. But wait...the ad seemed like it wasn't really an
estate sale but a business selling estate sale furniture clean outs. And there was a moving van
next to one of the entrances to that blighted empty mall. Hmmmm...maybe, we thought. So we
drove over to take a closer look. Turns out it was a hotel furniture liquidation company. The doors
were open and the friendly folks let us look around. We found this great stylish and virtually
indestructible dining table inside. Score!
It's a great style don't ya think? It's in the style of a Drylund Sckovby Scandinavian dining table
but in golden oak (I suspect) instead of teak. It's used and has some scratches and a few minor
water rings but it cleaned up nice. This is the kind of danish modern furniture you need if you've
Ya just never know where your gonna find cool stuff! We never did find that alleged sale. Didn't
really need to it turned out. I bought a second table from that company but you'll have to wait
until tomorrow to see that.
