The Auction Purchase

Behold the wonderful vintage chairs!!!!!!! These two perfectly amazing chairs were purchased for only $7.50 at that auction on Saturday. That means $3.75 per chair! I was very excited about the price because usually I see them at antique shops for $30 to $40!!! WHAT A BARGAIN! But do I want to sell them? NO!!!

I bet one or two of you might be thinking, "What is wrong with her? Those chairs are horrible!" Even Kenny thinks they are "WT" if you know what I mean. Let me explain further! First of all, did I mention they were vintage? If you know anything at all about me, you know how I love antique or vintage anything! Second, my grandma had some similar to these (which my mom has now) and they remind me of her. I've always wanted some just like hers.

So now I have two great backyard chairs! Maybe they'll be my next painting project! All I know is that they make me smile because I think of my grammy when I see them.


  1. I love that kind of chair. My mom has some. They are great and comfy too. You might want to splash a bit of paint on them, but they look like they are in good condition. Nice purchase!!!

  2. I have some things that remind me of my grandmother. I understand that feeling. When I was growing up, we had chairs just like that on our patio.

  3. Ahh, yes. Great Grandma had some of these at her house too! You've taken me back.
