A Brass and Glass Extravaganza

This morning I was up and outa here early for an estate sale. The pics looked promising and I was the first in line. If you do the estate sale circuit you will understand what an accomplishment that is.
I had my eye on a bar cart...of course.
A lady behind me in line asked if I was interested in anything in particular and when I said the bar cart, she looked at me like I was crazy and said I could have it.
Thanks Mrs. Crank, glad I don't have to throw an elbow your way.

When the door opened there was my cart






WAY OVERPRICED!!!!

I was so bummed but it could go really '80's so I moved on.

Then I saw these items and I started seeing a common thread:









Don't knock the brass and glass look...Oh it has potential:

Apparently these people loved some brass and glass.
I however walked away empty handed.
That's the way it goes sometimes...but at least I was first in line!

  1. I've never seen that kind of dining table before?
    Does it have folding leaves? Pretty unique!

  2. I agree; that dining table looks interesting. I understand what you mean,though...there's that very fine line between 80s cool and 80s cheesy. :)

  4. I saw those same pics and halfway thought about trying to go, but have some workers at my house so I couldn't leave. Oh well. I thought that dining table was so unique! Did you see the sale in West Meade tomorrow? It looks promising as well.
