Lots of people go to garage sales. Some go early, some go a little more leisurely. However, as you can imagine, I am often met with surprise when I tell people that I set the alarm for 7am on a Saturday so that I can get to a garage sale by 8am (I have to have coffee first, after all); and people sometimes ask in disbelief..."WHY??" I never feel as though my answer: "to get to the good stuff first"; is very convincing...so I'm hoping that a picture is worth a thousand words...HERE'S why:
By the way, before I knew what it was, I was planning my usual restoration and distressed white finish (I just heard a collector somewhere hit the floor from fainting)...but don't worry...I will respect the piece and leave it alone, after cleaning and polishing it. Obviously, someone has replaced the knobs, which I frankly don't love on this piece...they look so wrong. I will do a little research and try to find original or copies of original pulls.
If anyone has any information that they can share with me to help me with my research, I would GREATLY appreciate it! If you are local, (South Brunswick, NJ) don't forget to check my other blog, The Vintage Years for upcoming garage sales.
