Sweet little school chairs are at the top of the list.
Maybe from being a teacher - I just love those tiny chairs.
While out thrifting one day, I saw four little brown chairs coming through the back door of the thrift store to the sales floor.
I quickly grabbed them from the clerk's hands and said I wanted all four.
She said she thought there might be a few more in the back, did I want more?
Did I want more!?!
And out came four smaller ones - two in the original oak and two painted white.
All eight of them would not fit in the buggy so I asked to take the tags and pick them up at the back door.
She said fine and went to tell the manager who came out of the back with a funny look on her face.
I thought she was going to say the chairs had been spoken for and I could not have them.
My heart sank right down to the floor.
I wanted those chairs.
When the manager spoke, I did not quite understand.
What? There were more?
She had five more oak chairs.
Yes, I wanted them!
Then she said there was a table with SIX more chairs.
Yes, I wanted them!
She gave me the tags to take to checkout.
I promptly paid for the table and NINETEEN chairs!
Yes, I totally forgot Olivia was visiting and was shopping over in the clothing section and had not one clue what I had just purchased.
<It is a wonder I did not drive off and leave her!>
All she saw was a handbag I had found and a paint brush.
Olivia was a good sport and helped me load the table and the nineteen chairs into the back of the truck which already had previous purchases loaded in there. She held two chairs on her lap.
Off we drove with the chairs tied to the tailgate like the Beverly Hillbillies.
She was nice to help me unload them to take the photos and clean them.
Then we loaded them all back up.
The six-foot table and all nineteen chairs.
All went to the booth and several have sold.
Thank you to a very patient niece.
Who understands an aunt with an obsession for tiny chairs.
