I love yard sales and with the sunshine we (finally) got today, there were several in our small town. We stumbled upon one sale that was way out in the middle of nowhere at an old farm house (my favorite kind of sale!). Their garage was PACKED full. Stuff was spilling out of everywhere. I wish I could have spent all day there and just sorted through and touched everything! It was an antique dealer's dream. I would have bought every piece of furniture there if we room for it. But I'm not collecting furniture just yet. But I did walk away with these goodies. A brand new, still in the box cutting table. I can't find any information about this particular brand online, but I know other tables like this go for $100 and up. The woman told me it was $145 new. Its still in the box, hardware included, never opened. Another great piece of Pyrex and the boys picked up two plastic light saber toys (they've recently entered a Star Wars phase). All for the grand price of..........wait for it.......$26!!!! TWENTY SIX DOLLARS!!!! Woo Hoo!!! SCORE!

I have that table and it definitely IS my most favorite piece of sewing equipment. Also, my DH spreads out drawings and plans (when it is empty). It folds so nice into a corner also. Can be used for picnics. I believe he paid $129.00, but it is now higher. There are additional items you can purchase ... big mat, hanging baskets for tools, etc. You got a good deal. 8-)) Wow, girl, you did good!~!!!

I have one of those tables too - I bought mine from Joann's with a couple several years ago but you still got a better deal. I love that it folds down out of the way when I'm not using it.

You lucky girl!!! You wil la,la,LOVE your new cutting table!!! It's been too long ago since I bought mine at Joanns with a 50% coupon but... yours looks exactly like mine (however I haver no clue as what brand mine is))

I do know I payed at least double than you did if not more.. but I love my cutting table! I can not even remember life before it. :) and as others mentioned above it does "fold" but I've never tried it :) Mine fits perfectly in the nook of the double window of my sewing room and is too full to fold down.. so why? ;)

Enjoy - and hope you get out of your "funk" soon!!! :) I hope my FQ Bingo game didn't cause this spell you are under.... you were so close as were many others ;)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
