There haven't been many estate sales that have peaked my interest lately and this week wasn't any exception. Until I happened to see an ad in the local newspaper (the last place I usually look) on Friday night for a sale that had started that morning which had some MCM furniture. And it was right in my own little town! I have no idea how I missed it on the estate sale list. I was bummed, assuming everything had sold on day one. But I drug myself out of bed Sat morning to go see if anything was left for half price day. Even for that I was late - showing up about 10 minutes after the doors opened. And all of the MCM stuff was still there! Sweet! There wasn't a lot - a coffee table, a couple of end tables, a great lamp, and this amazing chair. I passed on the tables (they were still $75 each, I don't need them, and I couldn't make money off of them at that price.) The lamp I snagged for $12.50 (forgot to photograph that.) But the best find was the chair, purchased for $47.50.
Now in reality I don't need another chair. I don't - just ask my husband. But I don't care - I'm keeping this one anyway because I love it! The original fabric is awesome - very textural - and is in perfect condition. And it is super comfy to boot. I'd love to keep it in the spot I have it photographed but it's actually too big there when viewed in the room as a whole. Too bad! So for now it is relegated to the basement. I'll need to do some hocus-pocus down there so that I don't have to get rid of any of my other favorite chairs. I'm thinking some kid stuff will have to leave instead!
