    Here's the deal: Ma's condo sold today, I have until April 21 to clean it out. There is a bunch of fine furniture that need new homes. Please read the following Terms & Conditions CAREFULLY:

    Pickup: We will be moving this stuff out during the first week in April. All items must be picked up by 6:00PM, Sunday April 6th. Failure to pick up by then will result in the loss of deposit.

    Deposit: For items $50 and over there is a 50% deposit due for me to mark it sold. Refunds will be made ONLY if the movers damage the item.

    Previews: I will be happy to take folks over to preview items $50 & over, but I would prefer to get a group together and make one trip if we can.

    Condition: Everything has been properly cared for. However, some of these items are 45+ years old and they all show the dings & dents of normal (loving) use & care. Nothing listed here is claimed to be in "new", "like new" or "as new" condition.

    Payment: Cash.

    Close of Sale: Items not sold by April 6th are off to Tillet's. Note - there are many knick-knacks & bits that I have not listed here. Please feel free to swing by ChezKaos on the 5th & 6th to check out other items & things. Where is ChezKaos? Well, look for the VT banner on Ridgeway.

    Smilies are at random, here we go!

    :blush: Baker's Rack
    [​IMG]
    This is a metal baker's rack that folds almost flat. $25.00

    :p Bedside Table
    [​IMG]
    One drawer. The bottom is open with a hole in the back to run a phone cord or whatever. Dark Mahogany in color. $25

    :blahblah: Buffet (not Jimmy)
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    One drawer runs the width of the buffet, the right & left panels open to a two level storage space that also spans the entire width of the piece. $75

    ;) Lane Cedar Chest
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Folks - this is a top quality piece! This is made by THE Lane Cedar Chest Company. The majority of it is a cavernous storage trunk, with an additional drawer at the bottom (Brassy tells me this is a "Blanket Chest"). As you can see it's a dark stain. Kids - the low end Lane cjest today starts at $160 and they top off at $560. This one ain't "Low End". Asking $225.00

    :screwy: Drop Leaf Coffee Table
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This is made by the ***mumble*** company of SomePlace in the World! As you can see it has two leafs that drop down when you don't want to display that extra huge Photo Book! $50

    :naanaa: "Brass" Day Bed with Trundle
    [​IMG]
    It's a bed by day and I have no idea what at night! Comes with the coverings & pillows. Comes with bith mattresses. $50

    :bow: 3 Drawer Dresser with Pull Out Desk
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    VERY dark stained dresser. As said - three drawers & a pull out desk top - rather unique. Good quality. $100

    :indiff2: Drum Table
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Perfect to put beside the sofa! One drawer. $50

    :rolleyes3: Ladies Wing Chair
    [​IMG]
    This wingchair is smaller than standard. For scale here it is next to a standard table & lamp:
    [​IMG]
    It's barely three years old, from the Norwalk Furniture Company. $100

    :devil2: End Table/Storage Chest
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Carved in the Phillipines. The doors open to a storage area that had a shelf half way up. $25

    :scaredeyes: It's a Coffin or an Entertainment Center
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This was actually custom built to hold a tube amp, radio, reel-to-reel tape desk and phonograph. Not the storage at the bottom built to hold records! Now it holds solid state electronics. $25 OBO

    :pofl: Fake Plants!
    [​IMG]
    It's a ficus with fake birds in it. $5 or free with any purchase!

    [​IMG]
    Just like the one ENS Pulver tossed off CAPT Morton's ship. The brass bucket is not for sale. $5 or free with any purchase!

    :nono: Lamp
    [​IMG]
    It's a lamp - kind of gold colored. It works. It's a lamp. $10

    :angryfire: Table (Hallway - one type)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The drawers on the right & left are real - the center one is just a panel. $50

    :) Hanging Fruit
    [​IMG]
    The pears are some sort of ceramic, the hanger is some sort of rope-stuff. $5? Anyone? Bueller?

    :notfunny: Lamps
    [​IMG]
    "Crystal" and "Brass" lamps - there are two. Reasonably new shades with fringe. $20 takes both.

    :confused: Luster Lamp
    [​IMG]
    This one has some major cracks in it. $10

    :happygrin: Occasional Chair #1
    [​IMG]
    Needle pointed seat cover - needs a new seat cusion. $10.

    :happygrin: Occasional Chair #2
    [​IMG]
    Better quality cain back chair, the coverings are velveteen (however you spell it). $25

    :happygrin: Occasional Chair #3
    [​IMG]
    The caining on this was recently replaced. The fabric is a classic "coquille" pattern. Far better quality than the two above. $75

    :violin: Hexagon Table
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This is a very heavy & solid piece! Two font panels open to reveal a huge secret compartment!!! $50.

    :party: Round Table
    [​IMG]
    Looks like a large wine stand. A decent piece. $25

    :happyclap: Shield Back Chair
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Freshly reupholstered shield back chair - a real classic!!! A real steal at $50

    :woot: Calico Corners Sofa
    [​IMG]
    Might be slip-covered. Might not be. But it's $150. It's also a very high quality piece!

    :genius: "Cafe" Table and Chairs
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    2 wicker chairs and a round, drop leaf table. Perfect for a small breakfast nook or covered porch. $25 for it all including table coverings. NOT the ginger jar!!!

    :confeyes: Tobacco Side Table & Crazy Lamp
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    2 items - together or not.
    The first is a copper lined tobacco side table. The door closes very securely. The photo does not show the detail on the door. I will try and post a better picture soon. $75

    And a crazy lamp. Candlestick style. $25.

    :rockon: Ladies vanity & seat
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Ladies' vanity & seat. Four drawers. The top lifts to reveal a mirror and sectioned make-up tray. It needs a good cleaning. $75

    :boogie: Small wine/brandy stand
    [​IMG]
    Yep - it holds wine, it holds brandy, it holds a plant. It's $5.

    :cool: Dresser & Mirror Combo
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Eight drawer dresser with attached mirror. If you are interested in the "ivory" lamps and the cut glass perfume set - let me know. The dresser & mirror set are $75.

    I'd prefer you post questions to this thread so all can see the answers.

    I am looking for random tea cups and saucers for my daughters to play with. They don't have to match- I just thought your mom might have had some that you don't have a use for...

    Its too bad the custom built entertainment center doesnt have the original electronics in it, if it did it would be worth a small fortune if they worked.

    Yeah - I remember fussing with that stuff as late 1980 - there was nothing like listening to Walker's late night jazz on AM 630 (WMAL) on a tube driven amp!

    Its also amazing how the quality of some older phonographs puts modern record players to shame. Especially if pushed through a tube amp.

    Yes! Make me an offer. I can probably get those out this weekend as they are not "Major Furnishings."

    I can tonight. The drum table come to just about even with the arm on the sofa it sits next to. The height of the three drawer dresser is even with the back of the "Occasional Chair #2".

    If that helps at all.
