What A Deal!

Yesterday we were on our way home from Kaitlyn's girl scout picnic.  As we were driving I noticed a sign for an estate sale.  So went to check it out.  I thought that there wouldn't be much because it was already the afternoon.  Boy was I wrong!  I have been looking for kitchen chairs ever since we moved in here.  The landlord had vinyl chairs in the kitchen, where the vinyl was ripped and exposing the cotton and foam.  Talk about gross!  I tried to cover it with duct tape which just curled up and it would have cost a ton to recover them not to mention their weird shape.  But I finally found chairs!  I tried to just buy the six chairs (which are solid wood) but the lady would only sell them as a set with the table.  It is nice to have the table though because it fits great in our kitchen and has an extra leaf if we'd like to use it!  But then she through in a desk, a side table, a kids table, 2 kids chairs, and 3 little junk treasures for the kids.  It always feels so good when you get such a deal and it is stuff that you really have needed and been looking for!
