A while back I mentioned that I have "dontator's regret" over full sets of vintage living room and bedroom furniture.
Most of it was Heywood-Wakfield.
And, not knowing it's value, I just wanted it gone.
(Growing up...I just hated that blond wood.)
Since then, I've been klunked in the noggin by the vintage bug and I would love to have those pieces back. I never thought I would see pieces like that again - or if I did - they would not be at reasonable prices.
I'm so glad I was wrong.
This is close to one of the pieces I would like to get back.
I found these tables are on Craigslist...for $35!
Nope, they aren't exactly the same.
Actually, they are the sleek shape that I prefer...but the wood is too dark.
So close. (I was tempted to get them.)
I also found these of the dove-tailed variety.
But, alas, these were $325 (for both) and still not quite what I'm looking for.
I'll be patient and keep the faith.
I bet they'll come home - eventually.
Do you have a prodigal piece?
What toy, game, piece of furniture are you hoping to find one day?
