We're renovating the mother-in-law suite attached to our house. Since my mother died years ago we've used it for storage of anything we didn't want to deal with, so it resembles Miss Haversham's house, with cobwebs. We've stripped it, painted it, vertical blinds will be in tomorrow, and new carpet and tile next week.
We decided to junk most of the stuff, including the old knick knack stand. I've never been able to open the base, so just took it all apart. Imagine my suprise when I found an unopened bottle of brandy. The excise stamp is from Florida, meaning the bottle has been sitting there for at least 33 years.
