I have been looking for dressers & wardrobes online at Gumtree.com and the various “yard sale” groups on Facebook – (there are like 20 in this part of North Norfolk alone!) but I have not found anything that was cheap and good quality. Most of the stuff I see online, at car boot sales or used furniture shops range anywhere from £45 – £200 and are not quality, rather particle-board type fake wood. While I often hope to score one at the James Beck Auction – these type pieces never go this cheap.
A guy in Alysham was selling what he calls a dressing table for £10. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be able to fit into the back of the car, but sure enough it did. It’s perfect – solid heavy wood and has a nice mirror and really beautiful knobs. There is a tiny pull of the edge at the bottom but I don’t care – it is old and it looks a bit rustic and in great shape!! I might try to glue it.
Perfect for Maebh’s room and her clothes. Now she can dance around and admire herself in the mirror. 🙂
