Remember the free pool table?

.

You know, the one our friends gave us that inspired my husband to spend untold thousands in converting his storage barn to a man cave extraordinaire? Well guess what…. the husband has decided the free table isn’t good enough now and has been shopping for a new one.

Have you ever shopped for a pool table during a global pandemic that forced everyone to stay home? If not, I don’t recommend it. Maybe it’s just Maine, but up here decent pool tables are hard to find. After exhaustive research ( that would be me, you know he wouldn’t take the time ) and a few disappointing viewings from Craig’s List ( ‘oh yes, the table is nearly new and in perfect condition’ they say… standing over a tilted, dented wreck with ripped felt ) we found a store with two ( yes, that’s all ) tables for sale.

Did I mention it was a very high class place? I deduced this by the dogs playing poker plastic sculpture that took center stage.

Swanky pool cue holders were available as well.

Husband tried this table but it got a no vote from me. If we’re going with better… I want better, not seedy pool hall decor.

This had a little more style, but the wrong color felt. Turquoise may be hot right now but we prefer the old fashioned green.

.

The tables can be ordered and customized with any wood finish as well.

Out the door, delivered and professionally set up for $3,500. Please note this is a far cry from free…. but not as much as the Brunswick or Olhausen brands. Those babies go for $8,000 – $10,000.

* gulp *

The search continues.

  1. Cassius Marcellus Coolidge started the dogs playing poker craze … too bad WP doesn’t permit photos in the comments. Be sure to scroll though them.

    These paintings still hang in pool halls and poker emporiums across the dotted landscape. Not that I would personally know about that, of course.
    Next thing you know, hubby is going to need a custom stick …
