We are very pleased to announce that the winner of the “ A Day of Antiquing” Contest is:

Martha Scandrett

I’m not sure what this piece of furniture is called or when it was

manufactured, the 70¹s, I imagine.

I bought it on impulse in 2006 for $400.00.

It sat for weeks on my balcony unattended as I decided what to do.

Brilliantly crafted except for the Avocado relief.

I eventually found a refinisher and paid $750.00 to refinish it along with

two other pieces.  A steal!

Lo and behold this gem is Mahogany!

The beauty of the piece is that it closes up into a compact chest of


Add 2 leaves ­ it transforms into my daily workstation.

Add the other 3 (5 total) leaves and it becomes my 7 foot dining room table!

Congratulations Martha!  This is a fantastic piece and great find.

We look forward to spending the day with you antiquing at the Christie Antiques Show.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

Wishing you a wonderful long weekend!
