The Resale Evangelista
Just got the newsletter from the Miriam Switching Post. Good thing I’m out of town because I know I would have a new desk, and possibly a new leather chair, too!
The Henredon caramel leather bucket chair, worn just enough to look like you’ve always had money, is $380.
This linen-look side chair, with curved arms and slight camel-back top is $250.
A Mid-Century Modern drop-front desk–solid hard rock Maple with a hand-rubbed finish–is my favorite. It is just $250. You can hardly buy a maple cutting board with a hand-rubbed finish for that amount! I swear, if I didn’t already have stuff in storage, I’d buy it right now. Come to think about it, there is still room in the storage unit…
In case you don’t know about the Switching Post, it’s a non-profit shop on Big Bend Blvd. featuring all sorts of high-quality, pre-owned goods. If you want something and you keep visiting the Switching Post, you will eventually find it, at a good price. As they say at Miriam, it’s the best on-going estate sale in St. Louis.
And when you do find your object of desire–buy it at once! The good stuff goes really fast. As a friend always said, “The only purchases I ever regret are the ones I didn’t make.”
