And Even More Ole! (From Stanley Furniture)

Here I go again, with even MORE photos of the glorious vintage "Ole" furniture made by Stanley Furniture Company back in the late 1960's.
This yellow set was offered for sale a while back at a place in Southern California.
Would that I could have driven down there, purchased it, and brought it all back home.
Alas, I could not - so these photos will have to suffice.
First we have a corner grouping with a hutch on top, four pieces in all their astounding yellow glory with green, orange and pink painted detailing:
 Here are two photos from a Stanley advertisement that show a  different corner unit set-up, with larger pieces on either side:

 As you can see, the cabinet on the left above is like this one, below:

 And I did find this one photo that has the same type of corner set-up as the one featured in the advertisement:
Here's a nice dresser:
And the nightstand - oh, how I LOVE this little piece!
That cut-out detailing, with the sort-of Moroccan style just kills me:
Here's the gorgeous headboard:
 And here's a photo of that same headboard from an old Better Homes And Gardens magazine :
 This isn't a good photo, but here's one more, featuring a pair of them:


You can see how those differ from the bed I found:

 Extreme close-up:
And here's another picture I found that IS like mine:

And I'm assuming this is an armoire, below - I rarely see photos of this piece:
 Last of all, I'll just throw in two more (poor) photos of Ole pieces in yellow, since that color is the focus of today's post - a different nightstand, with one drawer:
And the low dresser and mirror combo:

And there you have it, the latest in my series of Ole furniture posts.
Because I love it, and yes, I am obsessed with it - in ALL of it's colors, more than mere pictures and words can express.
Call me crazy if you like; I care not a whit.
I love it; I always will - and that is a fact that you can take to the bank.
(And if you're headed to the bank, take me with you, if you don't mind?
 And pull out enough money for me to buy one of these sets the next time I see it for sale - no matter where in the country it is located.
 Pretty please?
 Hey, you can't blame a girl for trying.....)


Please Note: If you are interested in this furniture, then I am happy you are reading my post(s). But this is just my personal blog, and I am not set up for trying to sell any Ole pieces you might have, so please don't try to contact me regarding furniture for sale. Unless you live in northern California, I wouldn't be able to buy it from you (and even if you are, I may not be able to afford it), and I'm not a furniture broker. I would suggest listing your pieces on eBay or Craig's List in your area to find a buyer.
 However, I certainly DO appreciate any comments from fellow lovers of Ole like myself, but comments including e-mails and/or phone numbers may not be published, or are subject to deletion.
Thank you.

Greetings! I actually have this whole set from my childhood. My daughter now uses it. She doesn't want/need the armoire, and I am selling it. If you are in the ABQ, NM area and are interested, please let me know. There are 3 shelves inside and one wooden pole across the top for hanging clothes -- and a drawer at the bottom. It's in great shape other than the magnet won't keep the door closed.

I had the twin bed night stand the desk and tall dresser and a round mirror vanity. All in yellow my favorite color. All pieces were lost in a fire enjoyed from 1973 until 1980 when lost. Would do anything to start collecting the pieces..such wonderful memories of my beautiful room
