Also at the thrift store:
I have this pub table (intended for use as a staging prop). I paid $20 for it at a furniture store closeout because it has scratches. I have wanted these bar stools to go with it for YEARS! (In the photos there is also a regular-height dining chair which I already have two of and which I could also use!) The thrift store has 3 for them (which would do for now) for $29.99 less 25% which makes them $22.50 each! They sell new for $99 apiece. If they last until next week (which they won't because they will surely sell on Saturday if they don't go today!), they will be 50% off and thus be $15 each! But there is no possible way in my current budget that I can justify spending $45. Which just sucks!
It is times like this when my determination to find a way kicks in and I set my sights on finding a way to get what I want (or something close that will suffice) for FREE! For the moment, however, I'm eating my heart out!
Or, I could just sell the darn pub table and eliminate the problem! $50! Any takers?
