I was at my favorite antique mall yesterday and I came across this cute table:
First of all, it goes with the condo's color scheme so I wouldn't even have to paint it. And it would work either as a nightstand, or in our teeny kitchen as a more structured recycling area.
So I'm all excited, thinking I'm about to get a great deal... and then my joy comes to a screeching halt:
Riddle me this, you guys: Why are some things inexplicably overpriced? That table is small. It's short, and while it's hard to judge scale in a picture, it's not big in any sense of the word. Yeah, it's really old, but it's just a re-painted side table! Right? It's possible that there's a gap in my antique furniture knowledge, but I'm pretty sure this is ridiculous.
Have you come across anything hideously overpriced lately? Something you really wanted? It's a bummer, isn't it? What did you do?
