Hubby went to an auction without me a bit ago. That’s always dangerous….he doesn’t have my “good reasoning” to talk himself out of buying things (just teasing). Anyway he came home with this….
He gave me the tags stating the prices when he got home but I didn’t pay much attention to them. Then the other day I was doing the book work, I picked up the tags. I was reading through them and saw that they called this a sewing table.
The table is super cute. It’s made of nice wood and folds up super easily and is so handy.
I have one in my sewing room that I use all the time. Here it is in use right now…see?
It’s not quite as tall as a regular table, but that’s nice for sewing.
Does anyone know why they call them a “sewing table”? Does anyone know a good price to sell these at? I did look on Ebay and they are listed anywhere from $60 to $600. Ebay isn’t always a good judge on how much things are worth and this time, they certainly aren’t.
We have another one that Hubby already refinished and we have it in our stash of things that we are taking to Clear Lake for the antique show on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend…but then I talked to Hubby and told him maybe I should take them with me to the retreat. I have plans to set up a booth of vintage things for sale that attendees might be interested in.
So readers….can you help on pricing this or telling me any history as to why they are called sewing tables? A couple comments mentioned that the readers thought the table was square. It is not. It is rectangle.
