We stopped by Dave Robinson Antiques on Miami Circle in Buckhead to pick up an interesting set of compact settees that I had purchase before Christmas but had not yet picked up. Dave sold me a set of four French-style chairs as well as a wingback and Martha Washington chair before I got out with the settees. Sometimes it just pays to go directly to the other "pickers". All in all - a great day to be out!
I did manage to pick up great pieces at really low prices and can't wait to see how they look once redone. The process of refurbishing nice furniture is truly magical.
