Stunning SAGA

By Julia

When we last visited the SAGA saga, we hit the jackpot on a bedroom set. I have to be honest, my husband is quite a bit more tech-savvy than I am. He figured out how to use some of the tools Craigslist offers to comb all listings within a 3-4 hour radius of our house and then send him notifications when there was a match. He found a ton of neat pieces, most of which weren’t SAGA, but were manufactured by Broyhill. Every so often, he would find a match. We weren’t always sure where the SAGA pieces would go, but we couldn’t pass them up if they were reasonably priced, which is how we got our buffet. My husband took a 3-hour ride after work one night to go fetch it, and then it barely fit into the borrowed vehicle he was driving. I was a nervous wreck, but everything worked out just fine. And the buffet was in great shape!

It looks very similar to the dresser we acquired in our last SAGA adventure, with one notable difference.

The sides have shelves instead of pull-out drawers. This buffet has turned out to be a very handy piece of furniture- perfect for storing items we would like to have nearby, such as these photo albums.

I adore the starbursts, the walnut finish, and those spindly Danish-modern legs. So iconic!

The classic SAGA tag was intact in one of the drawers. The seller had even labeled the drawers so that they could be put back into the unit in the correct order if removed.

Here is one more beauty shot of the buffet. It ended up making it’s way into our living room. We found a different SAGA piece for the dining room that lead us on quite the adventure to retrieve it. But we’ll save that for the next installment of the SAGA saga. Stay tuned!

    I am in Eastern Oregon and just found a Saga hutch on Craigslist this morning. $ 350.00. Ad says it has been in the family for 60 years.
