My friend had the daunting task of clearing out the home of her elderly Aunt after she was moved to a full care nursing facility. The house was sold and needed to be quickly emptied before the closing day.
She decided to have a sale.
Linda gave me a call before the sale to see if I might want these chairs for my gazebo.
She knows me well.
It turned out that the sale was going to be the very day we were leaving for our Florida vacation.
That just wouldn’t do, so Linda very generously offered to have me meet her there one night after work instead, a full 2 days before the sale.
Well I bought those chairs, of course.
They’re a very heavy wrought iron with the original cushions.
They’ll be perfect out in the gazebo this summer.
Once done with that transaction I started looking around. Big mistake! There were all sorts of cool things I wanted to bring home with me.
An hour later we ripped up that first check and I found myself writing one for twice the original amount.
Want to see some of my goodies?
There was a mirror too. Guess I forgot to get a photo of it.
For the record I tried hard to limit myself to things I thought would fit into my next room makeover.
Can you guess which room was on my mind?
It sure was fun having first dibs at a sale!
