My second best find ever


You’ve heard of ambulance chasers, right? How about a moving truck chaser? 🙂 That is officially what I’ve become.

I was killing time on Kijiji and what should appear before my eyes? A vintage card catalog. I have been looking for one for a year.

Was I just supposed to let it pass me by????? So what if they were loading the moving truck? I hightailed it to the sellers house and picked that thing up toot sweet.

It is from 1922 and has a glass cabinet that sits on top. Not sure if I will put it on or not. My plan for this piece is to sand it to the bare wood and just wax it. I don’t like the heavy stain on it now. Or maybe I’ll restain it in a lighter color. Dunno. But one thing I do know…it’s gonna be pur-Tay!

    Susan, I can’t believe it !!! Just as you are about to leave you find it. Now you have a small card catalog and the one you’ve been dreaming about. Good work.

    Ooooh, I am soooo jealous! Great karma for you! Can’t wait to see it finished, but I guess it will be a while since you are moving? Have a safe move!
