What a STEAL!

by Shelly

I love that my adorable husband is now becoming a big yard sale, estate sale, flea market, picker….like me! Last Saturday he got up bright and early to hit the beach for a little surf session. About 15-20 minutes after he took off I got a text message from him with this picture….
Sweet chairs! I LOVE wingback chairs and I LOVE seagrass anything…and the good ol’ honey knew that. What a guy! He said he was going to make an offer on them and that was all the text said. About 15 minutes later he drove up the driveway with the chairs in tow. He popped out of the chair and said, “You will NEVER guess how much I got these for!”. My bargain hunting sweetie got these chairs in fabulous condition for $50 bucks EACH! We flipped them over immediately to check for a manufacturer and sure enough…Pottery Barn..which go for $449.00 new!

I think the boy did good, real good. Not sure what we are going to do with them yet.  I might keep them or put new cushions on them and sell them or use them in a clients’ home. But for $100 a pair of chairs this good had to be brought home!
