Tell that child to take extra good care of that dresser and it’ll continue to appreciate in value. Something to look forward to having for a long, long time. My folks are downsizing from a 3000sqft main house and a small vacation house into a 2000sqft primary residence, and they’re offloading a lot of their furniture to us kids. My DH and I are the very grateful recipients of a number of antiques: a hall tree, a walnut secretary’s table, a gun cabinet, a drop-leaf coffee table and two large rugs. That stuff is scheduled to arrive sometime during the last two weeks of December. I’ve loved those pieces since I was a child, so it’ll provide quite a bit of Christmas cheer, getting those pieces here!
