After touring the show house in Cashiers, NC last Saturday we went shopping. There were several antique shops, but the prices were a lot more than I was willing to spend. This area is a very high end community so the prices reflected that in the shops. So after looking at all the pretties I went to my favorite antique store on Monday. Shirley and her husband were staying in Atlanta after leaving my house since her hubby had business in Atlanta. After he finished she met me at the antique store and we looked around. I wasn't even looking for anything special, but came across three different end tables that were a possibility to use next to Mr. Savvy's chair in the great room in place of the round French table that is there now. I'm afraid he is going to mess up the top of it. I chose my favorite table, which was at a really good price especially after seeing the super inflated prices out of town, and took it home.
Only problem is after getting it home it didn't fit well next to his chair so it was on to plan B.
I had placed my drum table in here when the furniture shuffle was taking place, but this table needed to go somewhere and it works well here. So the drum table moved up to a guest room. Yep, more shuffling.
The name of the maker was inside the drawer. The seller of this listed the info on the sale tag that this company was in business from the 1800's to 1947.
It's in very good condition with a few chips which would be expected from and old piece. Both of the drop leaf levers function well.
Of course after placing this table in its new home I had to dress it up. I picked up the bird's nest fern and pot in Cashiers in a cute garden shop. Now she had good prices. I hope I don't kill the plant.
It's going to be a bright, sunny and hot day.
Wishing y'all a fabulous weekend!
