One of my husband's friends saw me cleaning this and recommended a certain type of paint stripper. I said "no way, we don't want to take this paint off, this is the look people want!" He was shocked. I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
Cute little one drawer pine table. Has nicely turned legs and finials front and back. A couple of my customers have already commented this morning that this is one of the few pieces I have had that is not all chipped up. They know me too well!
This beautiful tiger's oak chest with mirror has been in the shop for about a month, but I was unable to take good photos of it, (due to lack of maneuvering room and my photography skills!) The consigner has supplied these wonderful pictures, so now it can be viewed online. This is just a gorgeous piece!

Beautiful stepback cupboard with 3 drawers on bottom, a wonderful counter top for display and then two glass doors with 3 shelves. This just has an amazing look to it. I had a lot of fun finding things to display in it. Because it's red and black, anything red looks great, but I also like the tin and wire ware with it.

I bought this thinking I would display tools on it because it's pretty rugged. One of my customers saw it though and said I should definitely display desk items instead. So, here it is, and whoever buys it can do it whatever they want with it!

Tru-Scale bowling alley made by Keystone Co. Boston, MA. The alley has a beautiful wooden lane with great patina. This is 8-1/2 feet long, and if you have been in my store, then you know it was hard to find a place to display this! Has all pins and wooden balls. Stands on legs that fold down for flat storage. Lots of fun!
