I took another road trip...to Manley's Antiques

Click to enlarge these shots...yes, they are as cool as they look!

This cupboard is huge!!! It had contact paper on the front doors, so paint was removed as the paper pulled away...but what a piece!!!
It came out of an old school, possibly the cafeteria.

The inside is in perfect condition, with it's original boards in place, with removable shelves.

I ' heart' old original finish Victorian dressers...

...and wonderful old work tables...

One day I'll show a peak of Dave's work space at the back of the store, this is where the cleanin' and fixin' is performed. Every piece in their shop is ready to put in your home,
nothing for you to do, but enjoy...

I love, love, love this store. Some day I'm going to visit it. Just to get some idea, do you remember what the cost of the work table (with drawer) was? Jan

I'd love to see that old school cafeteria cabinet after you performed your magic on it!

Now I know why I never see these cool old cupboards. They are all in Iowa! *sticks tongue out at Sharon*

I enjoyed catching up on your last few posts this morning (thanks for allowing them to show up completely in your feeds) ... love the photo of you on your motorcycle (with the stand down but not showing) and the 'antiquing' you do. It's been years, but the motorcycle DOES bring back fond memories. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,
