I have wanted a Hoosier Cabinet since 1973. There was just never a “right” time to search for one and to buy one. A few months ago, the Husband and I saw one at an Estate Sale and put a bid on it – it wasn’t in the best of shape, we didn’t get the bid.
Since then I’ve done some research on them to be more familiar with what I wanted knowing we may run across another one some day.
Well, that day was last Thursday. We were at “Becky’s Estate Sale” and saw this one. I fell in love! The Husband was much more pleased with the condition so I talked with Becky and she made me a GREAT deal.
On the left are plates I got from my Grandma Doane and my Grandma Elsie. The turquoise plate and plate holder I purchased at “Paramount Antiques.” The hanger and items on the right I have purchased over the last couple of years from estate sales. I will continue looking for just the right items to finish filling it up.
This is now in the corner of our office. The Husband cut out the wood and I put the letters and numbers on them. I have a picture for over my desk, given to me by my friend, Ellen, but need to get it framed.
Marrying at our age has been a wonderful experience. Merging all of our stuff has been an “experience!” But we are working it all out very well together and it has been F.U.N.
