This buffet hutch was made in 1941, and it is the one piece of furniture that we kept. It belonged to my grandmother who passed away in 1995 just a few days after her 98th birthday. It's nothing special, it's not worthy of any valuable "antique" status, and it's not worth any great amount of money.
I'm not normally sentimental about these types of things, but my grandmother lived in Toronto while we grew up in Ottawa. One of my favorite childhood memories is the regular trips we made to Toronto to visit my grandmother. This piece of furniture was in her house, and I remember it from there. It reminds me of those trips, and it reminds me of her.
But my sister no longer wants to keep it in storage at her place. I tried to sell it for $250, but got no responses for the ad. I think that's a sign that I should keep it. So I'm going to try and give it to a friend to use for the next ten or twenty years....or longer.
