DSCF0878_editedlike, how could i not buy it?  do i need it?  well, no, not really.  but for 10 bucks i was kinda forced into it.  i’d seen this coffee table in the thrift store when it first came on the floor weeks ago for 20 bucks.  for $20 i didn’t need it.  but today was the last day for green tag items to be half-price.  and she was green.  that’s 6-1/2 days being half-price patiently waiting to be scooped up.   what i can’t figure out is why no-one else bought this mid-century coffee table.  it’s a baumritter (ethan allen.)  good solid piece of furniture.  i mean, 10 bucks.  you can’t buy a martini for 10 bucks these days.  come on.  someone had to save her.  i’ve old-englished it and even turtle-waxed the top and it’s not half bad.  and it was half-off.  there can’t be THAT many people in my area who could pass up a good deal like that.  but then again, i’ve seen the people who shop my stores…apparently our tastes are polar opposite.  and for that, i bow my head and give thanks.DSCF0879

Catching up on a month of blogs. Seem to be a lot of feet pictures! 🙂

If they have a 60’s museum somewhere.. or maybe you can start one!
