For a long time, I just couldn't get it out of my mind, but tried to dismiss it because I just couldn't justify spending the money...
A year went by, and Lisa and I took off on another Vernonia day trip. I was curious to see if the cabinet was still in the same shop we had visited... When we entered the store, I felt disapointed that it was no longer there (even though I didn't have the money to buy it!).
I decided to ask about it, and was surprised to learn that the cupboard was still around, but had moved across the street to a consignment shop. My heart started beating fast when I laid eyes on it, the price had been significantly reduced but was still high... I asked the lady working there if I could make an offer on it, so she put me on the phone with the owner and she graciously accepted my offer!!!!
We made plans for me to return with the cash and the truck, and that is when I learned that she had purchased this beauty from Linda and Ludmil, aka Willow Nest! I was stunned and elated that I could finally own such a treasure created by Ludmil!!! Still, to this day, it is one of my favorite pieces and one I will never part with!!
