    well you can't beat the price!! LOL Wonderful find! My mom and I keep an eye out for things people throw out. Mom saw a dresser that was made of oak and had 6 drawers. someone had set it out for hauling off so we went and got it. It needed painting but was really solid with no damage what so ever. Heavy old piece that has stood the test of time.

    Best way to go shopping!!!
