I was at an auction a couple of weeks ago, and I bought a Pepsi table that was said to be an antique, it was a appealing little table, with ornate legs and inlaid with gold and glass.
I was going to own that Pepsi table regardless of what it cost me, when our sibling laid her eyes on it, she was also sure it was an antique.
She looked at the legs and the construction and said it had wooden nails instead of metal nails, then this got myself and others excited, but I did not recognize what that meant. She was a self-professed antique expert, and I was fairly certain she knew some of what she talked about! How else would she be able to spot wooden nails? When I got the Pepsi table home, our spouse asked how much they milked myself and others for? I looked at him and asked what she was talking about? She asked if either of us had looked at the bottom of the Pepsi table. Written on the bottom, on a tag, was the original price tag of a genuine replica of an antique Pepsi table. It originally sold for $100 and it looked adore it had gone through a fire. I was devastated and our sibling excused herself, saying she had breakfast to make. I spent more for the Pepsi table that was in exhausting shape than if I would have gone into the discount furniture store and bought a new Pepsi table. She called myself and others later that night and apologized for giving myself and others the wrong information on the Pepsi table. I refinished the Pepsi table and provided it to her for Christmas.
