Thing Of The Past ~ A Peek Into Last Month's Shopping Cart

Have you ever snuck a peek at what the person next to you in the check-out line has in their cart? "What did they get? How much did they pay for it? And where did they find it because I want one too!" It's a lot like that at the shop during the sale: people are always so curious as to what's been bought and is heading out the door. Well, we know it's not quite the same, but in the interest of quenching your curiosity, we thought we'd show you what were the most popular and fasted-selling items for December's opening. (You can click on the photos to see them larger.)

It's white, it's got carved embellishments and glass knobs; ladies and gents--may I present to you SUPER CHIC!! This dresser has what every shabby chic lover wants. Also very highly desirable is a great price! This one, with mirror went for $215.00!

Double duty furniture is always on the lists of shoppers who live in smaller abodes. This pedestal base, natural wood topped table actually pivots to open up to a card table or close to make a smaller surface table, just right for an entry way. We'll bet it was used as "the kid's table" during Christmas dinner! And we "kid" you not on the price it sold for: $120.00

I'm gonna wash that man right outta my hair... If you've got something that needs 'a washin' we bet you could have used this little table. It's a washstand, (noun--1.: a stand holding articles needed for washing one's face and hands) for those of you youngin's. And YES, they had water back when we were growing up!!! Wouldn't this have looked great in your powder room with the bowl full of sweet smelling soaps, your favorite linens hanging on the sides and extra fluffy towels stored below? Yep, it would have. Sigh. It was priced at $52.00 and it's all water under the bridge now, my friend!

Another double duty furniture piece was to be had in this vanity/desk with mirror. We can see this piece in so many roles! A young girl's student desk, a big girl's dressing table, a table in a reading nook. See, when you do this "think outside the box" thought process in regards to something you see at Room With A Past which you've gotta have, you can justify buying it for the small price of $85.00!

Another big seller in December were small tables that could be used at the end of a sofa or next to the bed. Everyone has stuff and they need something to stuff their stuff in. It might as well be something cute... As cute as this table with its cute little pink glass knobs and curvy lines! If a price tag can be cute, too, well then you'll think this one was adorable: $32.00!

So there's your peek. All done without any sidelong glances, squeaky-wheeled shopping carts or worrying about picking the slowest check-out line in the store. Maybe next month you'll see a picture of what YOU bought at the January 20, 21, 22 & 23rd sale listed here!
