Well, This Is The Last Of The Drexel Declaration Saturday Morning Estate Sale Booty. This Is Just A Simple Clean Walnut End Table By Kipp Stewart. It's Already In The Booth (#5) At The Green Shag Market. Status: Cleaned Up And Ready To Go!
There was so much more Drexel to be had at that sale but I just didn't take enough dough with me to snatch it all. I had to leave behind a lovely Declaration dining table and I think either 4 or 6 chairs. There was also a buffet and china cabinet, but they had some unusual hardware on them and I wasn't really sure that they too were Declaration.
Only just now as I'm typing this do I wish I had taken some photos of the buffet and china cabinet so
that I could at least learn something about them and share that knowledge with you. Mornings
::shakes head::, Mr. Modtomic don't like no mornings. The table sat unclaimed for at least an hour
after opening and the buffet and china cabinet were still available after I packed up and left! The
table and chairs were priced at $380 and truth be told, if I didn't already have a set out in the Garage
and I had had the cash on hand I would have sprung for that set too.
The only disappointment was finding a long Drexel Declaration coffee table / bench that had been
spoken for before I got in the front door. I would have liked to have gotten that too, but I don't even
know if I would have had enough dosh on me for that as well. All in all, the sale buoyed my waning
desire to attend these free for alls so early in the A. M. This one was pretty fruitful, and I know that
Nick (over at Midcentury Midwest) recently picked up a nifty piece that had apparently been left
behind at an estate sale all weekend and was only picked up because they finally offered it up on
c-list! Bet you'd like to know what THAT is! You'll have to talk to him about that.
