  • Ya never know what you'll find on CL

    OK, here's your chance to own a piece of history. I'm not sure what history it has, but it's got some for sure. The price is right too.

    Grab this before it's gone. You'll kick yourself if you let it get away.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

      Wow, and only $400!

      I hate to say this (not really of course ), but we have a couple of chain "specialty" stores up in this area that sell decorator goods. It is not at all uncommon to see stuff similar to this, although not quite as amaturish, and the prices are absurd. I was always under the impression that it was imported from some backward Pacific region or maybe somewhere in Africa.... now I'm thinking that maybe it just comes from Philadelphia!

            Hipster-Yuppie-Environmentalists with a lot of "education" eat this s@#t up.

            Especially if you don't have it.

              Yeah, the shipping is what kills the deal for anyone not in the area.

                      For some reason when I went to the link, it came up as carpenteria near santa barbara. Not sure how that happened

                        Well then it fits right in in Philthadelphia, the City of Bodily Harm.

                            It's probably worth $25 and the shipping is $375. Although I don't think I'd pay $25.

                              Oh no, I think this is difenately a one-of-a-kind item, a classic antique.

                              I probably should send the link to American Pickers so they can swing by and give it a once over.
