A.H. Andrews Antique SCHOOL DESK CAST IRON WOOD USA 1880s-1890s – Sold for $45 @ CL


I bought this little desk years and years ago from an estate sale.  I had no use for it and it was time for it to go.  Sold to a mom with young children who was very happy with her purchase.  I was very happy to see it gone.

I'm really trying to de-clutter and want to go minimalist.  We tend to be hoarders collectors that just collect dust.  Time to let this "stuff" go.
