there's nothing like a good, cheap thrift score, amirite?? i haven't had one in awhile, and i'd been itching for it. so it was nice get out there and flex my thrifting muscles with zach and maeve the other day.
she took us to this place on long island called unique. it was the BIGGEST thrift store i've ever seen... and i've seen a lotta thrift stores. the prices for all items were pretty typical, with one exception- the furniture. all the furniture was like, stupid cheap.
when i saw an ugly 70's office chair of my dreams marked at a mere $2, i thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. then i noticed ALL the chairs were marked that low. then i noticed that no furniture was above $10, really.
i labored over whether or not to get it. both maeve and zach insisted it was too ugly, even for me. and the condition wasn't the best. but in the end, i decided it was practically free and must have it. and i was looking for a chair for my office nook, anyway...
then we went to the register, and it was 25% off day. so it ended up being $1.50.
A CHAIR FOR MY OFFICE FOR A DOLLAR FIFTY.
so that is the story of my new gloriously ugly chair, however long-winded (seen here next to purple rain). she's perfectly at home :)
