Re: Tip on purchasing furniture

We went with the antique look. 9 piece bedroom set $795 including the mover to get it into the house. Walnut buffet and huge display cabinet with burl wood solid doors and full length hinges plus birdseye maple interiors, $695 for both. Six pieces of Ethan Allen maple component units for $200. Older and better quality than the newer pieces we already owned.

The rest of our furniture is from 1977, 1981 and 1986. Each the date of a house purchase that required some furniture. Have downsized and sold the excess.

I saw some Amish furniture where the drawers just glided. To a woman, as nice as the sound of a new Mercedes Car Door.
