Am unexpected, accidental, unplanned happy shopping day
I am so pleased. I have been looking for 10 matching chairs for my DR for a long time. I was on my way to the pharmacy when I spotted a group of chairs in front of what truly is a junk store. I did a u turn and pulled in to find among old clothes and broken appliances, 10 mahogany chairs, with clean green seats. The owner was awfully nice and pleased that he could sell all 10 at once because most people don't want 10. We sweetly bargained and I got them for $325. I didn't even call DH. I gave the man $100, loaded 5 chairs, went home, got DH, went to the ATM and picked up the other 5. The owner said that an antique guy told him they were Duncan something. I assume he meant "in the style of Duncan Phyfe." There are some scratches and dings, but nothing I can't live with. I even like the fabric, my favorite green and clean. I am so happy.
