I ran around the secondhand furniture stores and antique strip on Lorain today in search of furniture. I’d forgotten how ridiculously over-priced most of the antique places are compared to back in Indiana, but I lucked out and found a dude actually interested in selling some merchandise and finally picked up the exact kind of library table I’ve been looking for years. Quartersawn oak with a middle drawer. I got it and a chair for $130. A better price than buying something new and not as sturdy.
I’ve also brought back the sidebar posts as my researches on various topics have been turning up lots of amazing links. Here’s a feed for it.
