Estate Sale find!

My rule is never walk away from an old wooden chippy Adirondack chair if it's a good price.
Let's see, now I have 9! How many sitting areas can a person have in one yard?
So I saw this one in the back yard of an estate sale. I play these little games with myself. I thought, if it's more then $2.00 I won't buy it. Sometimes I talk to myself, I have noticed others do this at thrifts and estate sales. I fell they are the true junkers.
Anyway, I looked to see the price and it was $3.00! I bought it anyway.

I hoped you could see the price. I'm sorry.

It's this beautiful dull, chippy gray. And it's solid. I thought it has to be wobbly.

Only 9? You know you will have to keep going until you have a dozen, at least! Then you can have an adirondak party - I'll bring the wine!!

Bootcamp kicks your bootie! Thurs. 5:30, let me know and I'll save u a spot!!

What a find! An old-fashioned Appalachian chair! My dad used to make these for our backyard enjoyment! (I love how you bargain with yourself...I do that too! Funny and Fun!!!)

I think that's a great rule. What a fantastic price, that chair is so nice.

I love Adirondack chairs too, but here in Canada we often call them Muskoka chairs. Yours has great character, and for only $3, what a deal.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower.
