Decisions, Decisions

On Saturday, Jake and I came across a table at an estate sale that we just couldn't refuse, even though we don't need a table. We're usually more practical than that, but the price was right and the style is great. It has a leaf to extend it to fit all 6 of it's chairs. It's solid wood, it was made by The Lane Co., and the upholstery dates it to at least the 60's, but we have no other info on it.





















Yesterday, we bought new fabric and padding, and began reupholstering the chairs.

So the question is:

Do we keep this new table and give our old table back to it's owner? Or do we re-sell the new one and make a profit? If we sell the new one, we get money now, and a new table when we need one. If we keep this one, we'll have our own table with matching chairs, that can extend when our family does.

I have to agree, the new one is just too cool to sell, keep it!Who is the original owner of the old one?
