Ok, it’s not necessarily a new find. More like a new purchase. I went to visit my daughter in college yesterday. First I delivered a truckload of groceries to her. Not kidding:
Then took her out for lunch before she had to rush off to her next class. It was great seeing her, but the visit was way too short. A good friend of mine had accompanied me so after lunch we headed directly to a used furniture warehouse that’s located in Kutztown. This place is amazing! Rows and rows of used furniture, antiques, wall art and almost anything else you can imagine for the home. This is just one corner:
This is the third time I had been to this store. It’s probably a good thing that it’s so far away because I could be dangerous in a place like this. Anyway, all three times that I was there, I kept being drawn to a certain piece. It called my name. It was big and old and had so much character! Due to the fact that my car was in the garage and I had to take my husband’s truck…guess what I hauled home! You betcha. I cleaned it up and put it in a semi-permanent location in my living room (until I decide where it will be showcased best). The only problem is that somewhere between here and Kutztown, we lost a knob. There was already one gone, and I planned on replacing them anyway so no harm/no foul. Isn’t it beautiful??? The best part was the price. I paid less than $200 for this baby. You can’t buy a faux-pressed-wood tv stand at Target for that price. I am so very happy with it.
On our way home, we decided to stop at a produce place that we had heard about. This market is about 45 minutes from our home, so not someplace that we would frequent often. After being there, I sure wish it was closer! The price on produce is insane! I came home with cherries, oranges, red beets, pears, radishes and bananas and paid $8.00. Love it there!
Obviously, a great day. I got to see my baby girl, spend time with a great friend, discover a new fun place and add a piece of furniture to my home that I will treasure for a long time. Not bad for a Thursday!
