I should be ashamed…

but I am not.  I went to the local swap meet/flea market this morning and picked up a nice collapsing drinking cup, now I have 4.  I got this from a fellow that I have got a few things from the past, when his son is there I just walk past as his prices are more than his father.  Well the father was there and I did talk him down to $4.00 from five, he seldom lowers his prices, this was unusual.

However the real find was this chair.  Now it is not in my period of interest but I couldn’t pass it up.  Now the young lady (young relative to my age, yet legal) I bought this from is quite attractive.  I have bought from her in the past, she has some nice stuff on occasion, besides she is nice to look at.  Well she had this chair marked $3.00 and I beat her up (nothing physical) and got it for $2.00.

Victorian Chair

So while I should feel bad about that dollar, I feel better that it stayed in my pocket.  Now I just need to make room for this chair.

  1. Ah, I see you changed the font setting, thank you, much easier on the eyes..
    Now go back and look at your previous post, see the difference?
    Th older format had the letters bunched up too close together, making it harder to see.

    Thanks Stephen

  2. Stephen, is that a child’s chair or a full size chair? It seems unique.

  3. Bob,
    You are welcome. However my next post will be in the small font, don’t know how to change it back. But that will be my last with the small font.

    VC,

    Nice catch. As you notice I always put a gnomon in my pictures, I didn’t on this one or you would have noticed that the chair is only 9 1/2″ tall, it is a Doll Chair. I just couldn’t resist and I can’t make a chair of any size for $2.00.
