OK, here's the story....
I saw this chair in the back room at the thrift waiting to be put on the floor.
I have to stand on my tippy toes and look over a tall shelf to see back there.
It was on the top of the pile laying on it's back. Waiting to be priced and put on the floor.
I really couldn't tell what condition it was in or even if I would want it.
But I had a hunch..
I waited and waited and waited. I don't want to tell you how long I waited.
You would think I was nuts for sure.
Then it went missing! I couldn't see it anymore and it was not on the floor.
I panicked. Asked Josh, he couldn't find it. He thought maybe they threw it out because it was junk!!
Can you get it back Josh? No, I'm not allowed.
My heart is racing.
I hung my head low and went to the counter to pay for the other chair and treasures.
The owner is standing there. I always felt like he was not a nice guy.
I had to do it.
So I asked, he went in the back got it out of the trash and said I could have it for a very good price! I have trouble telling prices because if I resell I don't know what people think.
I'm so happy this ended well. It doesn't always.
When I was taking it out, a man stopped me and told me it was a Panama Chair. They would put them out on the ships while they went through the Panama Canal and people would sit and watch the scenery. He said very rare from the 40's!!
Well you know that just topped it!
Now, should I recover it or leave it as is. You can't sit on it now but it sure looks cool.
Hope you are having a great day and find some treasures!! I so enjoy your comments, they make my day!
