If you’ve tried to furnish your first apartment or even looked for that much-needed desk or even a lamp, you know what the prices are. And we’re not even talking period pieces— just something of a certain age, with that certain feel, at just the right price. We’ve found a good selection of four-drawer chests between $220 and $450; a mahogany twin-pedestal dining table for $550; a carved oak mirror for $95; and a set of 10 Maddox cups and sauces for $65. If your grandmother did not leave you anything, this is for you.
