5 in 5 Dining Suite

Well, Sandie will certainly think I've got a bit of a cheek, but anyway here goes.

I may have mentioned in an earlier post that GM and I are relocating in order to be closer to family. The only downside to this relocation is that as we are moving to a slightly more expensive area so we are downsizing, buying a smaller house than the one we currently live in, meaning that various items of furniture are too big or surplus to requirements in the new house.

We currently have the luxury of a lovely dining room, but our new house has only a kitchen/diner - the diner half has room for a table and chairs, but not the beautiful dining suite that we currently own. So it has to go. I'll soon be putting it on Gumtree or Ebay (haven't yet decided - ebay has a larger audience but Gumtree is cheaper [free]), but in the mean time if you, or anyone you know, are/is looking for a fabulous dining suite, please get in touch.

The table is an (up to) 8-seater, with 6 chairs and 2 carvers. I am told that the table top is "book match veneered cat's paw oak" and the chairs are stained beech. You can get a general idea of the size from the photos, the table has an extension which fits in the centre, there is also a protector cut to the full (extended) size and a plain (very slightly wine-soiled!!) cream table cloth to fit. If you are interested please comment below or email me joy.shallcross at btinternet dot com.
You will need to collect it from Warminster.

By the way, I know that the carver in the last photo looks as if it only has three legs, but you'll have to take my word that the fourth (rear) leg is completely hidden by the leg in front of it (otherwise it would have fallen over!).
