I am finally getting a hold of a 1950's china cabinet! I have been searching and searching for one...and yet I found one back in the fall at Savers. It was $40 and it was beautiful, very mid century! I loved it, but I passed on it because I was not sure if it would fit in my apartment. I loved it so much I was going to buy it anyway and display it in my grandmother's house downstairs from me in her front room. It was a great price and in good condition, and exactly what I wanted. Enough room to display my Pyrex =)
But then Hurricane Sandy came along and wasn't able to go to CT. I went back to the Savers where they had it a week after Hurricane Sandy hit and it was gone! I was sure it would be there but someone was lucky enough to grab this treasure! Then I found another great mid century china cabinet on craigslist and it was located in CT. I adored it and it was a great price but it was not going to fit in my dad's jeep...it was big! So I checked U-haul and they were pricey....almost $200 for u-haul and then an additional $150 for the hutch, it wasn't in my budget..I had to let it go.
So my good friend of mine is cleaning out his storage unit and he has his mother's furniture in there. He promised me his mother's china cabinet from the 50's. I have never seen it before, but we went to his storage unit this Tuesday and I loved it! It has two glass doors for displaying (Pyrex!) =) and the bottom has a lot of storage space for tablecloth's, silverware, napkins etc. Which I need! He is giving it to me for nothing! I was so thankful. I can't wait to get it in my home and admire it.
He also gave me a full garbage bag full of his mother's vintage clothing! What gorgeous clothes she had!!!! We are going to go back to the unit this Tuesday to see if there is any more. What a treat! =) I will be posting pictures of the clothing over the weekend, they are from the 50's and 60's GORGEOUS!
All and all my start to this week was great and hopefully my weekend will be filled with some nice treasures to bring home!
