One of our sellers, Allison, recently sent us a lovely email to check on her consignments. Her email happened to include a short history of this dresser and it’s just so sweet, we had to share it!
The year was 1953. Dwight D. Eisenhower had just been elected president, and Allison’s father was just starting grad school at Cornell University. He bought this precious solid oak dresser at a used furniture store in Ithaca for $5, and it remained his dresser for the rest of his life. Allison says, “it’s the ultimate in reuse if another person picks it up and and uses it for another 65 years.” We love that spirit, Allison! The dresser is still so sturdy, someone certainly could!
This story reminds us why we love what we do. The history in these pieces makes them so much more beautiful. If you’d like to make this lovely dresser part of your family history, you can take it home for $150.
