Well, actually, this beast was at the Salvation Army marked down to 40 bucks, and they were having this 1/2 price sale on all electronics - and since this had an electrical cord because it was an old stereo, complete with a turntable and an 8-track - I was able to score this beauty for $20!
Was I ever right! You should have seen the look on his face when he arrived at The Salvation Army to help me load it. Straining and groaning under the weight of this "piece of junk" as he called it.......I kept seeing Edward shake his head and mutter something about, "She's really lost her mind this time".......! Deciding he must not be as visionary as I am, I tried to paint for him the picture I was seeing in my mind of how this could someday sit in our Dining Room as a gorgeous sideboard....... AND, in the meantime, could even be used as a great place for the boys to store their legos!!! It was a win-win idea, wasn't it?
And to be perfectly honest.......the more I looked at the stereo, the more I struggled with what my eye thought it had seen in such a piece.
Whew, yes, I'm very, very pleased.......
And if I ever see another retro stereo console at The Salvation Army for $20.......
NO WAY! NOT THIS GIRL!
For if time is money -
Thanks so much for stopping by - and please tell me I'm not alone with a story like this. Please tell me you, too, have a story.......please.......anyone?
