Every once in a while you while you are out thrifting, you find something super rad.
Hold on, let me back this story boat up.
I have the greatest Mother In Law in the world. She is in my Top 3 most favorite people on the planet group. She is so cute and stylish and encouraging and beyond supportive and absolutely hysterical. Her birthday was in the middle of April and I decided that instead of getting her a bunch of smallish things I would wait and get something GREAT when I found it.
We have been on the hunt for a mid century credenza/buffet/dresser for a little bit for her living room and wouldn’t you know, I found the perfect one yesterday.
The tag price was $100 (which is a great deal anyways). But if I’ve said it once I’ve said it a hundred thousand times. Always ask if they will go down on the price. What’s the worst that could happen?
So I waved an employee over and asked if they would be able to go down. He shrugged and said “How much?” and I thinking they would take of $10 or so said “Oh you know, as much as you want.” He said “How about $50?” and I almost responded with “How about we get married?!” But instead I said sure.
Fifty FREAKIN Bucks.
So I get home and Facebook it and everyone wants to see a picture right? It was dark and the drawers were out so I googled Drexel Parallel (that’s what was stamped on the back) and this came up….
Now granted this one is a little bigger but FREAKIN FREAK! $900!
Mine needs a little touching up on the top and once that is done and we get it moved in its going to be amazing!!
Do you ever google the things you find at thrift stores? I don’t usually but I am TOTALLY going to start now!
