Picks of the Past

I found this oak gargoyle table at a moving sale in 2012. It was in the garage, becoming water damaged by the moisture at the feet and the side of the table top. It included the table top and came with 12 tables leaves. I paid $25, and sold it on craigslist for $600.

This is a Vornado window fan from a yard sale in 2011 which was being sold as is for $1 because they weren’t sure if it worked. Turned out it does, it just has a bit of a warm up time when you first plug it in.
