Dorothy Draper España Chest... for $40.

This is my all time high. My all time favorite post I'll ever write. My holy grail.

I'm not the only one with a rabid obsession over the Dorothy Draper España chest. It's one of the most lusted after pieces in the industry. They're rare, very expensive (they'll run you anywhere from $2800 to $5000 for one in mint condition), and iconic, to say the least.

Welp, I found one for 40 BUCKS over the weekend at the Chic & Simple Resale Shop in Berwyn.

It was originally $125, marked down to $75, and when I asked the gentleman if he could do any better, he said "yes, how's $40?" Was he kidding? Ok sir, I'll take it... I could barely breathe.

Here she is in the store. Blurry picture because my hand was SHAKING. Not kidding.

And just for fun, even though my appraiser friend said "yup, this is the real deal," a little comparison to the Dorothy Draper España chest on 1stdibs

I really can't think of much else to say, other than I can't stop looking at her, and can't believe she's in my house. Welcome home, love!
