Antique Double-desk ~ What a find!



Well, this is a first. I just learned of a blogger who is having an "I'm A Flea Marketeer Party" and I just wanted to spread the word. I'd also love to win the prize; a bag (as in, purse, I believe) made from coffee bean bags.  Now, could there be anything more charming?  I ask you.
If you'd like a chance to win this lovely bag, scoot on over there and post a picture of your blog entry about your favorite flea-market find. Mine is an 'Old English Double-desk' that we found for $7 shortly after we got married. In my home, it is now 37 years old. I wonder how old it was before I got it. It has stood up through my husband's college, all of my children's schooling and asundry neighboring children and business deals. All in all, I'd say we have gotten our money's worth, wouldn't you?
Here's the link to the party:  http://fleamarketstylemag.blogspot.com/2009/10/join-im-flea-marketeer-party.html

$7, pro-rated over 37 years adds up to one unbelievable bargain, don't you think?!

Very cool find! I'm not sure I've ever seen another one like it. I can't believe you got it for $7.00. Good for you!

What a neat find for $7 even 37 years ago! It's been so fun to meet new bloggers who share the same thrifting love that I do.
