At one of my local thrift stores they have a 25% off card that you can sign up for and use every Friday. I don't go every week, but I go often. It seems like I haven't been in awhile since all the holiday stuff is over so I went this morning.
I was so happy with what I found.
Right outside their doors when I walked in was this Wingback Chair.
Pottery Barn has a seagrass wingback for $600.
You can buy slipcovers for wingbacks for $50 or more.
The chair was marked:
I had to do a double take on the tag.
Which means with 25% off I paid $1.49.
Yeah, the upholstery on this chair is disgustingly nasty stained. This was the side of the cushion that they didn't show when trying to sell it.
But seriously, $1.49!
The bones, legs, sturdiness of the chair are great. I'll just go buy some fabric to make my own slipcover for this one and the other wingback that I already have in my house that I grabbed off someone's curb last Fall when they were throwing it away. The upholstery on this one is much better. I just put it in the house after taking down the tree. My kids LOVE this chair and are already fighting over who gets to use it.
I also got a nice basket organizer for my kitchen and all the paper madness that drives me N.U.T.S!
2 Queen size sheets for $2.99 each.
That top sheet looks pink in my "lovely" light, but it is tan. I have some quilting ideas for that one.
An 8 x 10 frame for my daughter's swim team pic. $1.43
That only needed a quick once over with some white spray paint that I already had.
And lastly a square red tin with lid that I'll use for some Christmas stuff/storing. $.74
Grand total this morning:
Hope you all have a great weekend crafting or sewing or just plain doing nothing.
