I think I have a problem. If you follow me on Instagram you already know that this past weekend at the trödelmarkt I found the most amazing pair of chair for only 50€($75.) I almost passed on these guys because I couldn’t think of a single place I had to put them. I passed by one last time on our way out and saw them still there waiting for me. SOLD!
Aren’t they great?
Guilty, I purchased these antique chairs at a thrift store for 70€ ($100) about two moths ago. You may remember my fabric struggle I shared here. Fortunately I have yet to order fabric for them so they are free to make the move into the living room to flank my desk (I’m thinking pink.)
Two pair of chairs is not a big deal some rearranging and everything works out perfectly. Did I tell you I already have a pair of chairs flanking my desk?
And of course there are these guys, got them for 30€ ($42) at the trödelmarkt.
One found a home in the “Man Cave” but the other is waiting for a home in the attic.
This pair I also got at the thrift shop, they were 60€($85) including the table.
They too found a home in the “Man Cave”
I also bought this loner at the thrift shop for 15€ ($21.)
And this one for 20€ ($21.)
Is anyone keeping track here? (I hope my husband is not) That is 10 chairs I have purchased in the last year. If I am honest, I also bought a few Ikea chairs new for my desk and sewing room. I am working on a chair a month.
What is wrong with me?
Do they have a chair hoarder’s therapy group I can go to? Or maybe this is my therapy.
When I had my store back in the U.S.this was not a problem. I could buy chairs all I wanted refinish them to sell or use them for a while then pass them on. But now? I guess the attic will fill for the next two years while I rotate chairs in and out.
I just love buying chairs and when I can get 10 for only 255€ ($350) I say “Why not?”
Does anyone else have this problem? Am I the only one?
