What's old is new

This is my place to show off the items I would call vintage, things I have either refinished or kept as is and find interesting. I am still a kid at heart bringing home what some might call junk and am always in search of that buried treasure. I am not a picker and I am not a hoarder, working with my hands on my own time repairing or refinishing the things I find brings me peace of mind and time to myself to contemplate whatever has transpired in my life or time to just zone out and concentrate on the task at hand. Some items for sale or possible trade just ask..click on my profile and send me an email.

UPDATE: If Only I Had More Storage Space AAAARGH!!

Take a look at the awesome china cabinet in my previous post......Awesome! I know. I have been in turmoil for two days over this thing, buy it, don't buy it, where could I store it temporarily if I got it...Either no one else saw the potential in this or they thought it would be to cumbersome or maybe it's just crap and I'm crazy...The online auction just closed and this sold, it was a real battle between two bidders. After three bids it sold for T-W-E-N-T-Y FREAKIN DOLLARS yes you read right $20.00..Can you believe that? You should have seen the crap that sold for hundreds and this had 3 fargin bids in $5 dollar increments. WHAT THE "F"! Someone made off like a thief here and it wasn't me. Makes me want to puke.


  1. Somebody got a steal! I think the thing is really pretty, but we don't have any luck selling china cabinets, so we never buy them anymore.

  2. Thanks Dana I don't feel so bad knowing china cabinets don't sell well. That was the one thing that kept sticking in my head, no one really displays china etc anymore. However I thought I might offer as a package but would be willing to seperate and sell the lower half as a credenza/sideboard. Oh well, you know what they say when one door closes another opens and I've spotted some really nice lighting recently that I'm keeping my eye on, I feel lighting is always an easier sell.

  3. Someone either got a really sweet deal for their home or a dealer picked this for nothing and is sure to make a really pretty profit if only on the base section. I've started splitting my chinas and turning the tops into curio cabinets. Win/Win!
