Thrift vs Designer

We are  looking for the right pieces to put in our new space. I am open to Craigslist, garage sales, and vintage, as well as the usual stores we love. I have been learning a lot about the value of a piece. Craigslist vs Ikea vs Named store. Here is one direct comparison for your amusement.

This is a table I found at a Thrift/Vintage shop
Drop leaf thrift table

The price on this lovely piece is $200. There are even some panels in the wood as accents.

This table is in a collectors collection on One King’s Lane.

This is a rustic pine table. It is beautiful, but it does not have the detail in the leaves that the local table has. And the price: $2689.00 (on sale)

Can you believe?

Off to do more shopping! Virtual or other wise.

    • Stores often have 15 percent off sales. I know Antique Colony does on San Carlos. Make an offer on the $200 table. You can always strip it and leave it
      raw wood. Looks solid.
