Do you love restoring antiques? Or are you simply looking for something a little different for your home? These two unique items have turned up at the Buy Back Shop and are in need of a new owner. The antique brass clad daybed and a table estimated to be at least 120 years old were dropped off at Gordonvale. They're in need of a little love and attention but would scrub up beautifully (and could be worth a few $$$)! Because of the unique nature of these items, we're offering them for sale by silent auction. Come on down to the Buy Back Shop this weekend to check them out and to place your bid. If you're lucky enough to score these wonderful pieces of history, don't forget to send us a pic once they're restored :)
