Took some time out this weekend to enjoy the 60th Annual Thrift Shop Christmas Bazaar in Napa and picked up some cute vintage Christmas decorations for our home. We found some more elves to add to our growing collection, including a very large one that’s animated and plays music. He still works pretty good but could use a good cleaning. We also picked up a cute gold deer and some really pretty tear drop style ornaments. The money generated at the Thrift Shop Christmas Bazaar goes to non-profit organizations including the local chapters of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. You can find more information about this yearly event in a recent story published in our local paper online: Shoppers flock to Christmas Bazaar
Last week we also picked up this amazing solid walnut Kent-Coffey cabinet/dresser for just $85 at a local Goodwill store. It was part of the companies “Town House” line that I believe was originally created sometime between 1962-1966. Kent-Coffey was an American furniture company based in North Carolina and they were competitive with Broyhill. A lot of the companies furniture lines shared a similar style. I absolutely love it and I’ve seen similar pieces selling on Craigslist for as much as $550 so I think we got a great deal on it. It’s in wonderful shape with just some minor scuffing and signs of age but overall it’s still a really nice piece. We’re not sure what we’re going to do with it. We’ve talked about trying to put together an entire Kent-Coffey bedroom or just using it as a cabinet in the living room for now and maybe even a media stand. It’s really beautiful and has incredible lines, the original handles, a beautiful tone and dovetail joints. The picture below doesn’t flatter the piece very well. It needs to be really cleaned and but we’re still deep in the middle of renovations. You’ll also notice that our cat Maximilian decided to run past just as I was taking the picture.
