This Wheat Sheaf Hollywood Regency Coffee Table Is So Fresh To The Shop That It's Still Warm From The Oven! We Ain't Even Got A Tag On It Yet. Status: Fresh...And Already Gone!
This little coffee table is exactly perfect for our family shop: Fleur De Lis - Home Source since it rides the fine line between my Mom's style and my own. I think the shop is starting to gel! I'm snatching items that Mom would sell and she's doing the same with what I'd have grabbed up. It's a plan so crazy...it just might work!
I spotted this on craigslist early today just after getting to work. It was for sale nearer the shop than
my work or home and I figured Momtomic would be there, so I shot her a text with a link to the ad.
She didn't hesitate and got right on the phone to the seller. Half an hour later I got a text saying she
had gotten it.
Good work Mom! These Sheaf of Wheat tables are listed from between $1200 and $3950 on
1stDibs.com...but I ain't so silly as to believe we are going to realize that kind of return. Our asking
will certainly but much more modest...and reasonable.
Since I needed to drop by the shop to shoot some pics of the new table I went ahead and threw this
fireplace mantle back on top of Frank and took it over with me. I picked this up from the lady who
sold me the Sputnik chandelier last weekend. I had taken a few pics of it with my phone and sent
them to Mom but I had to go back and get it the next day. The lady thought I was a little nuts for
strapping it to the top of the car. I think this is quarter sawn oak. The "stripes" have that iridescence
to them that adds so much depth and character to the wood. Speaking of character...cigarette burns.
Nice touch. Update: Gone.
