Just about all of us that love vintage have trash-picked some gems. I don't know what it is about us, whether we just have this compunction to save things from certain death or whether we're just cheap. In my case, it's some of each!
So I thought I'd designate Tuesday as a day to share some of my curbside finds.
I know I probably should start small and work my way up to the biggest and best just to keep you all intrigued, but what the hell, I'm so in love with this piece that I'll show it off first.
I have never seen a better mid-century upholstered chair than this. Period. Never. And here it was sitting out by the street on my way home from the gym last year (See- I knew going to the gym would pay off!) FREE! The guy even came out of the house to help me load it in my truck.
The upholstery is wool houndstooth, the cushions are comfy, and most importantly, it didn't smell like smoke or cat pee! Jackpot!
Stay tuned for more Trash-picked Tuesdays!
