“The One With the Apothecary Table”

Today’s Open thread Sunday, as I continue my weekend vacation, is a suggestion from Blonde Gator proposed after linking an article bemoaning yet another Millennial dilemma: their inability to afford “ethical” furniture. BG posted it along with this comment: “These mean little dumb-ass millennials will attack most viciously anything they don't (or WON'T) understand. Read the is your BEVERAGE alert.” So consider yourself warned.

The budget furniture dilemma: As companies like Wayfair face criticism, is buying from them the right thing to do?

BG suggested that since everyone of *ahem* a certain age has gone junkin’ for wonderful furniture finds that this would make a wonderful open thread topic :

I knew the MOTI all would find it amusing and have stories to tell about particular pieces, treasure hunts, recycled stuff made into perfection, etc.

So have at it. For my 2 cents I’ll just note that this isn’t a new problem, Phoebe Buffet was dealing with it on the cusp of the Millennium.
