Well, the family couch turned out to be a big fat bomb. It was completely hideous – and more 1970’s retro cheap than 1950’s chic.
But I did find a new store! A hospice thrift store in town with weird hours and some great vintage stuff. It packed with only furniture and has three buildings full of stuff. I found a neat 1950’s curved sectional couch that looked brand new. Someones grandma must have covered it in plastic and never allowed anyone to sit on it. They wanted $500 but would take $350. The thing is HUGE. Maybe too huge – and I hate the fabric. It was white with pink and blue and green and gold flower prints – sort of that asian influenced textile pattern.
They get new shipments every Tuesday and Thursday and I might just have to keep an eye out…
In other house news – we’ve been crazed with renovations. A lot of work has gotten done, and I’ll have to post pics soon. Its starting to look like a house almost!
