Brass tea cart:

Asking: $400 (way too high, imho) [No longer available]
Condition: Excellent
Location: McLean, VA
Thoughts: It’s so feminine and dainty! What girly-girl wouldn’t love this? And yet it would work just as well if you cut the femininity in half by filling it with your favorite bar items (assuming your favorite bar items aren’t limited to the various flavored Smirnoffs).

Hollywood Regency cabinet:

Asking: $295 (not a steal, but not unfair) [No longer available]
Condition: Very good, but I’d consider replacing the knobs with something more distinctive
Location: Friendship Heights NW, DC
Thoughts: The round shape and circle motif make this a feminine piece, but the walnut finish keeps in from being over-the-top. Also, note that the top is marble. Pretty snazzy, methinks.

Floral oil painting:

Asking: $75 (they don’t give the dimensions but do say it’s “BIG,” and if that’s true, it’s a good deal for an original framed painting) [No longer available]
Condition: Don’t see any problems
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: This could go Golden Girls really easily. But I think it could possibly be cool if the rest of your choices are more modern than grandma chic. And if you steer clear of peach and sea foam green. Thoughts?
