This was one of Melissa’s final purchases during our thrifting marathon last Friday. We’d already beat a path around the city, and Mel’s Saturn was groaning with our purchases.
I spotted the chair first but forgot to alert Melissa–fortunately, she noticed and pounced on it before someone else did. The colors are even a little brighter than in the picture, and the upholstery is in excellent shape. Originally priced at $19.98, it was $9.99 after the 50% off discount.
See how well it goes with the owl print?
Because the chair wouldn’t fit in the car, Melissa arranged to return on Sunday for pick-up.
Except … on Sunday the chair wasn’t there. Amid the mania of 50% off day, one of their employees must not have taken it off the floor or labeled it as sold.
Lesson learned, I guess: If the thrift is busy, either cart the goodies away yourself or make darned sure no one else does.
But oh, flowered chair! We will never forget you.
