My husband and I love to look at old stuff. We love old stuff and most of our furnishings are vintage or antique. It doesn't necessarily have to be that old, just something we like. We go to yard sales, junk shops, consignment stores, antique and vintage shops. We look for just that thing we would like to buy. We have gotten much more interested in replacing that dead microwave with one from the flea market that was $10. Or cooking in that cast iron skillet that we found in the flea market in GA, than buying a new set of Emeril or Rachel Ray cookware. I guess it is a sign we are getting older, that older things have more meaning to us. We have been searching for a cabinet to go in our dining room to put linens, my mom's china and some other things in. Today at an estate sale, we found it.
I think it is maple. The drawers have tongue and groove construction and it is a good solid piece. I can't wait to load it up. The great thing is that it only cost us $100.00 dollars. We have been looking at pieces and were sure we were going to have to spend between $200.00 & $300.00 on something nice, but we waited and found a great piece for a great price.
