The hardwood table matched mom’s living room.

Mom had a beautiful cherry living room set our Grandparents had given to her. When they broke up housekeeping & moved into a senior care center, they offered all their children the option to take what they wanted before everything else got auctioned off, then she chose the cherry living room set because she remembered how much fun they used to have sitting with her mom & coloring there. When I was talking to a neighbor of mine about the living room set, she took myself and others into her lake house & showed myself and others the cherry sideboard & children’s cherry table & chairs set she had. She said she had been trying to find a attractive apartment for it, & asked if I would prefer to buy it. She quoted myself and others a price that I couldn’t refuse, however mom was always looking for a children’s dining table & chairs for when the entire family got together on holidays, however the sideboard & dining set matched perfectly with what she got from our Grandparents. My partner & I carefully loaded it into the back of our truck with the help of our neighbor & her partner, i called to tell mom every one of us were on our way to her house, & every one of us had a present for her. When she saw the cherry dining set & sideboard, she burst into tears. She said her parents had the exact items, & they were sold at an auction. I wondered if that wasn’t how our neighbor got the cherry furniture. My mom was blissful with the newly acquired addition to her living room.
