Guess How Much?


I almost died when I saw this at the salvage yard yesterday!


It was sold, but what truly amazed me was how much it sold for.
 
 
$6000!

I guess you don't need to have a gorgeous shop to get these kinds of prices anymore.

Wonder what French chateau this once occupied? Or do you think it is English? Have to have a big kitchen for one of these. '-)

OMG! What a wonderful butcher's block. I'd love to find one of these next time I'm in France (smaller version of course!)

Terri, Amazing! Do you think it is getting more difficult to find the "great steals" or is there still plenty to be found?

OH MY GOSH. I HAVE DIED AND GONE TO BUTCHER BLOCK HEAVEN. Seriously amazingly gorgeous. I would have jumped on a plane for that. It is unreal...how do you find this stuff? This is worth designing an entire kitchen around. Was it absolutely sold? Any more? I annoint you the queen of the treasure hunt.

What a stunning, stunning butchers block! Price doesn't dictate what a shop should look like and this piece was so worth the money. I'd buy it in a nanosecond if I could afford it!

Oh wow, how beautiful. To see it in person must have been great. I'd be happy just to touch it. (grin)

I saw that amazing piece too when I stopped in to Urban Ore a few weeks ago! It is even more beautiful in person! Wonder where it will end up?
