The One with the Apothecary Table

A good friend of mine just reminded me of one of my favorite episodes of Friends, “The One with the Apothecary Table.” I was telling her about how all the wood I collect for my wood signs has a story. I recently got a piece from an old cabin built in the 1800s, and our dining room farmhouse table is from 700-yr old wood from a tobacco barn in Louisville.

The story on Friends was that Rachel bought the table from a mass-produced store, Pottery Barn. Phoebe dislikes the store and favors one-of-a-kind pieces, so Rachel pretended she got it at a flea market. Watch a clip here.



Something to think about when you purchase mass-produced goods! Keep those flea markets a top contender. Plus, you may not realize what a great story a repurposed piece can tell. And, you will save a ton of money!!! Pottery Barn is still in my heart, but nothing beats a great deal for a unique item at the flea market!
