While I was ready to leave Goodwill empty-handed, I overheard someone say that a bunch of furniture was just dumped on the porch (instead of at the drop-off zone) and it was just sitting out there. I bolted out the door and to my surprise, found a whole bedroom set! Unfortunately, some other people beat me there and had already started claiming pieces. It was a furniture frenzy! I snagged the dresser before the employee even got the price gun. When all was tagged, I walked off with this beauty for only $30! Yes, that's a bargain! The dresser is large, strong, really sturdy, and not a piece of wobbling or coming apart anywhere.
Better yet, when I got home, I looked up the company, Cushman Colonial Creations. They produced furniture mainly from the 1930s-1050s and focused on using birch wood and solid craftsmanship. The birch accounts for its sturdiness and the craftsmanship for how well it has held up. Some of the Cushman pieces are quite valuable.

So now it is in my hands. The stickers will be removed, the stains will be assessed and this dresser has found a second chance at life, and a second home.
