Hey everyone –
My wife and I are in the midst of a big apartment move, and it’s looking like we’re going to have to say goodbye to our beloved old (antique?) dining room table. We’re going to put it on Craigslist, and I’m wondering if anyone out there can give us an idea of what it’s worth in the comments (or, if you’re interested in taking it yourself, just make me an offer at email@example.com).
I don’t know when it was made, but it’s a very sturdy wooden table measuring 6’5″ long x 3’6″ wide x 2’6″ tall.
…and comes with two leaves that add 10″ each to the table length.
The table has its share of dings and scratches and scuffs and chips from God knows how many decades of use, but it looks perfectly fine the way it is – and with a bit of elbow grease, could be as good as new.
Did I mention this thing is sturdy? Its age has done nothing to its very solid build (which puts it in stark contrast to just about all of the Ikea products we own).
Finally, the table also comes with four chairs, all equally as sturdy, with a similar level of wear and tear.
If anyone has any idea of what we should be asking for the table/chairs on Craigslist, I’d really appreciate it if you could let me know in the comments. And again, if you’re interested, just make me an offer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While I’m at it, we also have an old desk we’re getting rid of. It measures 3’4″ x 1’10” at 2’7″ high. Similarly old, well-built. The desktop is deteriorating somewhat but has a pretty great patina. If interested, make me an offer!
