My mother (now 85 yrs old) refinished an old Hoosier Cabinet that she had found abandoned in the basement of an old farm house. She and my Dad restored it and found some antique glass for the doors of the hutch. It was beautiful and especially because my parents worked on it. I've had it for years, but now I'm downsizing and must move it out. When our shipper showed up, we learned is was from our former home town where the cabinet was originally found. Our childhood home is halfway between Chicago and Omaha where we were senting the furniture. It was quite unique that the driver knew of our family name and met two sisters (now in their 50's) who grew up in the middle of Iowa where he now lives.
