Dropped Off Some More Good Stuff At The Pending Shop In St. Charles This Afternoon. Actually Picked Up The Items IN St. Charles As Well! Status: Nice How That Worked Out!
Last evening a nice vintage modern bedroom set popped up on c-list at a beyond reasonable price. I shot off an e-mail and offered the seller a few extra bucks to hold it for me until this afternoon. They were more than happy to do so and for the extra cash.
The sellers where more or less conducting a craigslist estate sale and clearing out a parents home. The
money was going for the further care of their parents so when I got an e-mail this morning telling me that
the seller had an even better offer than mine...and then another asking me to disregard the previous
e-mail as they felt like their integrity was worth more than a few extra bucks, I was not at all put out to
then offer the sellers the extra money they would have made by accepting the other offer. But they
wouldn't hear of it! I insisted and they took the dough. But then, I spotted another item that I had to
have and they gave me a real break on that...so it was all a moot point. I tried! I'll show ya the other
items soon. It's pretty cool too.
Anyway, so this pretty cool looking United Furniture Company retro danish style bedroom suite is now
at what will soon be our shop in St. Charles. The seller was literally 3 or 4 miles away and even though
I had to make 2 trips I was done getting this out of their way in about half an hour. The set is in good
shape but alas, it is vintage and has some well earned bumps and bruises. Once I get where I can spend
some time in the shop I'll get to cleaning this up all pretty. The bed was listed as a queen but I'm betting
that with the footboard and rails installed it's actually a full. Much like my Brasilia headboard though,
using just the headboard means a queen mattress can be utilized. Funny, it's just a coincidence but the
finish on this set is very close to the Drexel Profile dining set that I've got here as well.
