Hey, guys: Very Happy

Was just trolling eBay's PF site and happened across a real gem: a desk once used (and purchased by Shirley Jones circa 1970) on the set of our favorite TV show. Opening bid being $500 is well beyond my budgetary means, though I'm sure there are those among us who CAN manage this price, in which case, Happy Bidding, and Best of Luck!

OK, you had me going there, for a second. :lol:

I thought, "Hmmm -- $500.00 is pretty good for a desk/prop used on the show." Then I looked at the auction and realized it's actually $5000.00.

Never mind. Laughing Laughing

Hey, Scott: Cool

So it is.EmbarassedEmbarassed:oops:

Sorry about that. It was an honest mistake on my part. Still, $5,000 Shocked isn't an UNREASONABLE amount for a bit of TV history, is it -- providing you could, perhaps, find a way to RIDE it home? Wink

I can't remember that desk being used on the show. It looks too big to have been in the PF living room. Confused

What about Shirley's bedroom? That's the only desk I can remember?

Hey, Greely Winger: Very Happy

While I don't have many of the episodes from TPF S3 or S4, I do have a few on various VHS sets, and can clearly recall Keith being at a desk in the season 3's "The Eleven-Year-Old Itch", AND "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex...But Couldn't Pronounce"!

I've had another, CLOSER look at the photos of the desk on eBay and, while I can't tell whether or not this is, indeed, THEE desk, Surprised it's nice to THINK it COULD be (ya know?), and that while I'D never be able to afford it, that it could still wind up in the home of someone else who's also a TRUE FAN -- like any of us here!!

Just THINK of it, guys, you'd be the ONLY one on your block to have one! Talk about a conversation piece!! Surprised Shocked Cool Wink Laughing

This is the only image of a desk in the PF home I could find.
I know Keith and Shirley have desks, not sure about Laurie.

Hey, Darryl: Very Happy

Last weekend when I watching Season 2's episode "The Undergraduate" (which is one of my personal favorites as it always breaks me up! Laughing Laughing Laughing ), I noticed that during the scene where Paul's parents pay a surprise visit to Shirley (and find the embarrassed, sweet-faced mother of five with the killer legs in hot pants Laughing Twisted Evil Laughing Razz Laughing ) that when she sits in a chair across from them, that directly behind her is a DESK! I "zoomed" in on it and think it might just have been THEE desk offered on eBay (and supposedly once owned by Shirley Jones herself).

I noticed it was up again for sale again sometime last year, and wonder if anyone bought it... Surprised Wink
