Love at First Sight

After work, I decided to visit  St. Vincent de Paul's Thrift Shop.  As I pulled up next to the curb, I saw it.  Just sitting on the sidewalk next to the wall.  A vintage white enamel table with chrome legs and a red border design around the edges. I couldn't get out of my car fast enough to take a better look and to touch it.  What a beauty!

The chrome legs were rusted, and the enamel had some chips, but I was in love.  As I mentioned in yesterdays post, the Midwest is experiencing 90 plus degree days, and today was no different.  I remember seeing the bank sign reading 98 degrees as I drove to the thrift store.  I was getting a little damp as I dug to the bottom of my purse for my camera, but  I knew I wanted to take a photo to share with all of you.

An SOS pad and those chrome legs would shine nice and bright.

A cute drawer that was lined in yellow floral paper.

The price tag with the dreaded red dot.  Red dots on any item means it won't be discounted ever :-((

No need for a tablecloth with this cheerful red design all around the edges.

The price was $49.99 which I thought was a fair price, but I did not purchase the table.  I have no place to put it, sigh.  Does anyone want me to purchase it for them?  Let me know.


  1. Fascinating table that you found. I've never seen anything like it before.

  2. You did not buy it??? I might have been tempted to buy it at that price and then resell it on Craigslist. Seems like a good price on it. Very cute.

  3. I agree that the price seems a bit high for a Vinnie's. Very cute table and do not give up hope. It may be included in a sale some day. Wish that red dot away!
