Bargain Deal on Lykes Cabinet


We lowered the price on the Lykes cabinet to $350. When we retrieved the doors from the attic, the varnish on one side had bubbled, so that side will need to be refinished. This is a historic piece of furniture having been commisioned by the Lykes family for an inn they owned in North Carolina. It is vintage, not yet an antique, circa 1952. It has 24 drawers and four shelves, perfect for an office, craft room, or large kitchen. It's large, 51 1/4" wide x 15"deep x 84" tall. We have used it for books, media storage, office paraphanelia and general household goods. We hate to part with it, but it absolutely won't fit in the house we're moving to.

keep dropping the price and get used to doing so "cause when your house goes on the market that"s the only way it"s going to sell!!!!

that wasn't a comment about their house but rather a comment on the current housing market. Ask any realtor and they will tell you the same.

for sure I know that, but still kind of blunt when some one is planning on selling,,,,,,,,kind of like bubble bursting! Thinking a nice good luck would be more welcome a thought.

Scott: I do apologize for the blunt comment. I didn't mean it to offend. I do wish you the absolute best of luck in all of your endeavors. There is a Santeria/Catholic belief that burying a small statue of a certain saint in the yard up-side-down will bring you success with the sale. Try it.
