i found 6 chairs for 60 dollars
and the table i found at church rummage sale, the last hour, the lady sold it to me for 15 dollars
so a set 9antique) for 75 dollars total
i did redo the cushions on the chairs, just fabric and staple gun, fabric i found a huge roll at thrift store for 5 dollars, redid my 6 chairs, MIL 4 chairs and i have enough left to redo a chair i got on craigslist for free, it is a toddler chair from pottery barn, retails for 200 dollars, it had magic marker on the back, so i redid it
got to love the craigslist, but it depends on your area, larger cities have more of course, may need to transport.
dining tables do NOT sell well at estate, auctions, the dealers have no floor space for them, not a big enough return on their money, so dining table sets are priced pretty low
gl, have fun searching
