I just bought this full-of-awesomeness new chair for just $20 bucks at a yard sale. It was totally meant to be that I and this chair would come together in holy craft-room-accessorizing matrimony – I’m sure of it! I was on a bike ride and passed this yard sale in a posh part of town. I think that if there’s one rule of yard sales, it’s that you have to stop at the posh ones for the big bargains to be found at rich peoples’ homes, right? I mean, the nicest houses seem to have the nicest stuff.
But I didn’t stop. I violated my own rule, even though I spotted this cute little pink chair staring right at me, and despite the fact that I’ve been looking all over for a small, comfy chair for this corner forever. I went on to my destination (a 40-some-mile ride in total, with a lovely stop to visit my dear friends’ new baby in between!). On the way home, a few hours later, I re-passed the posh yard sale, and it was STILL THERE.
I sat on it, and it was comfy! And then the guy came out and told me the magical price of $20 – serendipitously the exact amount I carry with me on bike rides – and I forked it over and told him I’d be back later to get it. And now the chair lives in the craft room, together with me, and the little scooter-covered footstool. We’re still in the honeymoon period. The chair doesn’t know yet that it will be piled high with fabric from time to time, and we might fight about that, but I hope we don’t. Aside from these (hopefully) brief messy periods, I think we will live happily ever after here in the craft room together. Sigh. Love!
