    That's awesome! I've been going "antique shopping" with a couple of friends of mine and gotten some great deals on furniture pieces that you just can't find anywhere else! I can't wait to see what you've found

    I love antique shopping! I have been looking for a wing back chair for almost a year now that I don't need to recover that doesn't cost a million dollars, like finding a needle in a haystack

    GAH! I wish you lived closer! I saw 2 last weekend both under $200, but they definitely needed to be recovered...They aren't too difficult to recover though! I've done a few chairs and they don't take that long. Just make sure you have a staple gun

    Most of them around here go for about $350 and look awful! I did find some covers that go over the existing fabric but you still run the risk of smells and all that ickyness LOL

    Eeek! I'm 100% with you on the smell from the old chairs hah! I took an upholstery class a couple of years ago at a JoAnn Fabrics and that worked out really well! They walk you through step by step on how to reupholster the chair. If you don't want to do that, there's tons of YouTube videos on how to do it too. It's easy, I promise

    Word of advice though, don't buy the new foam from a fabric stores. They are WAY overpriced. You can get it for pretty cheap from either online (can you tell how much I love Amazon?!) or a place like Home Depot.

    We hit thrift stores all the time mostly for knock arou d clothes and stuff. When we lived on the east coast we used to hit the ones on Hilton Head Island and you could get some awesome stuff. I got my first 2 Armani suits from one store there for $25 each and my wife got a few Dior dresses for around $100 or so. The total cost at that time if the stuff would have been bought new would have been well over $5000 but we paid only $125 or $150. You never know what you will find so to me it is always worth looking and I still have the suits today.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I have a gorgeous dining room set that was given to me that dates around the 70's. It has a triple hutch and seats 10 around the table and quality that you would pay through the nose for today. The chairs that came with it had caning and some had holes. I priced having the chairs redone. well it was going to be $1,000 and up for six chairs. I just covered the backs of the chairs(which I hated) but it go me through until I walked into one of my favorite consignment shops and there sat six beautiful chairs in perfect condition. They truly just needed a washing and I only paid $164 for all six. I love consignment/thrift stores. BTW your clothes are fantastic.

    WOW! Great finds! I love the top with the flower on it!
