That is the question for the 7th Tell Me Tuesday with Suzanne over at Colorado Lady. and is also great for Vintage Thursday that is also hosted by Suzanne
This is a bit harder question to answer. Like Suzanne, I have sever things I would consider unique and treasures, but will only share the history and picture of one.
When I found out I was expecting our first child we went to an auction with my mother in law. There was a beautiful wood highchair that had a clip on porcelain tray.
We had bid up as high as we felt we could, my husband was enlisted army, and we had an antique dealer bidding against us. When we stopped bidding the dealer was so happy...until Grandma, to be, stepped in to bid. He took one look at her determined face and quit bidding! If I remember right we paid $35. for it. That was 37 years ago. An older man, who had been the previous owner, stopped us later and said that it had been in his family as long as anyone could remember and that it had come to Kansas on a covered wagon! Part of the uniqueness is that any I have seen either the tray or clips were gone. The foot rest is sitting waiting to have the pegs redrilled, someone used it as a ladder...
The tray is on a swival and was used at the table until our son was about 4.
The high chair still sits in our dinning room and is used anytime little ones come to visit.
Blessings and enjoy thinking about your answer to this weeks question.
