Thrift Store Impulse Buy
First off, an apology on thisÂ WordPress Theme – it’s having issues, I don’t like it, and will probably be changing it soon.Â I’m in the middle of trying to work up a custom header, as well (that’s tougher than I realized!) so things maybe a bit wonky for a few days.
Okay, on to the post –
The children and I were out for coffee this morning with friends, and on the way home, we swung by our favorite thrift store. It was a pretty successful outing – especially considering these goodies only set me back $2.25 in total (the hand-thrown coffee mug is my favorite piece).
I’d been eyeing this “so-ugly-but-I-am-in-love-with-it” chair for weeks and weeks, as they slowly lowered the price from the original $125 (yikes!) down to $30.Â Still a big purchase for me, but we have hardly any furniture in our new home, so I just went for it.
It took quite a bit of maneuvering to get it to fit in the back of my minivan (amazing how little space there is in a huge minivan when it’s full of three carseats, spare clothes/diapers, snack cooler, etc.).Â Quite comfy, too, despite it’s more formal shape. Â Here’s hoping my husband enjoys crazy, bright (shall we say “loud”?) floral in our living room.
