So, I waited until Saturday and tried a different thrift store. I found a rounded wooden chair for three dollars and made that our "new"office chair. I liked it. Really.
Today, after our three mile walk to the post office, we wandered into the first thrift store I had mentioned. When we walked in the lady said, "Everything's half price." As we looked around, it made me think... "Everything?" I wondered if they were going out of business. I didn't bother asking, but I did make my way to the counter and repeat a question from six months ago.
"Is that chair for sale?"
"I don't see why not. How's three dollars?"
If she had said anything under $20 I would have taken it, but for $3 I ran all the way home to get my purse.
Ok, enough talk. Here she is.
I thinks she's gorgeous. There's more. When we flipped her over we found three things...
1. The date "NOV 7 63" in a black stamp on the bottom. That's before my father was born. Awesome.
2. A sticker that made me very happy. This chair is legitly a science lab chair.
3. A sticker with instructions on how to raise and lower it. This one was the best. It means not only does my three dollar chair look amazing, come from UT, and qualify as vintage, she fits under my desk! Seriously exciting.
This is one of those things that I am like jumping up and down inside about. It's like I wanna call my mom and be like, "Check out our new chair! It's AMAZING! Three dollars! UT!"
But I won't. I'll just post this and non-chalantly hope that someone loves it as much as I do.
