Sacrifices...and Early Iowa Cupboards... I Hate...that mix...

As I sit...and count pennies... I realize... I am going to be short... for my taxes...due the end of the month...
Unfortunately....they are due...the week prior to my Fall Harvest Sale...and...with...No Early Sales...and no shows... during the month of September....and...spending much time...working with my friend...
{I couldn't be out...hustling}
and my Stupidity... with Jethro...and repairs...for him...out of pocket...and Advertising...for the Sale...and Bills...Bills...Bills... {and Gathering new inventory...for the Sale...} I find myself...as...it seems like...most always...
in a 'Tight Spot'....
So...I am going to have to sell...one of Beloved Darlings...out of the House...for the 'Cause'...
This is a Wonderful...Unusual...Early...Early...Iowa Cupboard....
I have Never seen one like it...
The case...is all hand dovetailed... along with it's drawers....
The Stepback, portion...is hinged, and lifts...to reveal divided bins..... the large board...inside the doors...slides up and out...so you can easily put Flour and Sugar...inside...
It has Old Mustard Paint...and a little white...on the drawers...{looks brighter, in this image...than it is...}
The bottom doors...are all hand champhored..and pegged... The Top Doors...originally had glass.... but a hundred years ago...they covered them...with thin...old boards... {I thought about putting it back.... but..figured....it's all part of the Journey... : ) }
I hate it...when this happens... especially...when part of it...was due to my own stupidity...
and...I know...Everything happens...for a reason...
Maybe...nobody will want the Old Darling...and something else...will come down the line....
but...just in case... I am... making the offer...
This Old Darling...isn't cheap....but...He'll be priced Fair....
if...you are interested... you can call me...at 319 241 1348
and we'll chat... : ) My e-mail is to the right...on the Events Column...
{Thanks...to my Sweet Friends... that have offered to loan me money... but...I Never Borrow... but...Thanks...from the Bottom of my Heart... : ) }
