Bamboo At Last

Almost as soon as I started actively antiquing, I fell head over heels for bamboo.  When most think of bamboo I doubt they think of it in an antique point of reference.  I'd say most think of it in a tropical locale.  The price tag has always been a little on the steep side for any bamboo tables, shelves or mirrors I've come across.

Back earlier in the summer at one of our fav spots, I saw it.  As I get close to the table I think to myself you know this thing is gonna be at least $400...they usually are.  I lift the tag and see the price

35 bucks!

Bestie N walks over after I squeal with delight to see what I had found.  She looks at the tag and she too can't believe it.  The piece is definitely old, just how old I won't ever really know.   I'd say the entire table is a somewhat fragile which I think lends to the age of the piece.
Neither of us could believe the price and we both believe that possibly the price should really be $350, that surely the vendor has left off the 0.  At any rate we pick the table up and promptly take it to the register.

There was no doubt that as to where I would put it once we got it home.  The table top holds several of my fav things.  The Masons lidded jar and the small framed print are treasures from England I picked up locally.  The lamp has been around forever and the double wine chiller will hold lots of greenery for the upcoming seasons and holidays.

So after years of wishing for a bamboo piece I got lucky!!!  I'm  thrilled with how it fits in the space.

  3. Tamyra, I'm thrilled for you. I, too, love antique bamboo and have added pieces to our home when I find them within my budget. Not only did you find a great looking piece, the price is unbelievable. I'm going to add a photo of your table to my Bamboozled Board. '-)

    1. Sarah, thanks for stopping by! I do love my antiques!!! Glad to find a reader that appreciates them as well!

  4. So pretty Tamyra and what a great deal! There is a bamboo basket at my antique store that I have been admiring for months but it costs more than your table. What an awesome find for you. Kathy
