    Hello All,
    I have always had a love of antique furniture. I remember when I was 10 years old, asking my grandmother if I could have her oak secretary to put in my bedroom. She said, "someday, but not today." :)
    Over the years I have purchased several pieces, and have enjoyed every ding and scratch while imagining the history behind it.
    I joined this forum because a few years ago I purchased a table that I cannot determine the age and origin. I thought many of you may have more insight and experience to be able to help me. I will post a picture on the furniture forum.
    Thank you.

    Hi Dawn and welcome.

    My parents were from Idaho and at least one board member is also! Hope someone can help with what you're looking for.

    They lived in Nezperce until eventually they moved for job reasons. Not a very big place:) but I still have relatives in the area.

    Cool! I used to live on the ridge between Kamiah and Lolo crick. You're right, not a big place and not a lot of jobs there.

    Ooo so close! I know those names but not anything about them.

    My folks had a farm outside Nezperce that has always been farmed by relatives. I inherited a bit of it with my siblings so even though I'm on the east coast, a little bit of my heart is there:).

    Kamiah is a beautiful area. Is it a crick or a creek? Sorry to tease. When my husband was in the Navy, people always gave me grief for calling it a crick…Idaho dialect….like jockey box instead of glove box/compartment.
