Beautiful Antique Secretary

What does $125.00 buy these days? A beautiful antique secretary! If you can see past the
ding and dirt.

This beauty made a safe trip to my store on Sunday, before the storm hits. Let the
transformation begin!

Now doesn't she clean up well? This is the last piece that I bought at Class and Trash,
I had to rent a van to go get her, well worth the trip. I saw even more pieces I would love
to buy like giant topiaries, paintings, chairs, columns, etc.

Th end.

Class and Trash

Sunday I had to attend a 70th birthday lunch for my Aunt at the
beautiful James River dining room of CCV. After the lunch, I headed
over to the store Class and Trash in Glen Allen, up Route 1. I read about
it on the blog, Richmond Trifter. I scored some really great things, one is
so big that I will have to go back for it!

I am going to give this compote to my Mom for her birthday, I will have a florist arrange
flowers in it for her.

Great Chinese Chinoiserie mirror.....

Love this Chinese parrot, almost ordered some from Two's Co.

This chandelier was covered in dust, Becca and I cleaned it up, beautiful! A score at $60.00.
Can't  wait to go back to this cool place!

New Pieces of Furniture

I love old furniture, yes the new pieces you see today
in all the Decorating Magazines are nice, but they are
not made like the older pieces. Most of the designs you
see today are copies of older styles An older couple asked
me if I would take a couple of pieces they inherited that they
cannot use in their new home. They are down sizing.

50's camel back sofa in it's original fabric!
Very comfy, great place to take a nap!
Mr and Mrs white Victorian Parlor chairs.
Red Eastlake Victorian soldiers chair.
Love these pieces, they really have a lot of character!
