Look at this funny little chair. It's the cutest fold-up chair I've ever seen. It's child-sized, about 1 ft. off the ground ($4.). Keely insisted on eating lunch and dinner in her new red chair at her play table in the kitchen, NOT with us.
And this neat milking bench? It's about 2 ft. long. I like it's battered look. I might make a zakka-ish pad for it. Then again, I like the handle holes exposed ($3.).
Lord woman! How much seating to you need? I know. I know. But it's sooo cheap and I like them.
Which brings me to my next topic.
I've been thinking about buying thrifty goods and selling them online. I'm not real big on ebay though so I don't know where I'd do it at, or if it would be profitable. I see so many neat things, more than I could possibly house, and I hate passing them up. I always pick up great dishes that I know such and such would love, and wooden toys and new kid's games, also quilts and blankets. The thing is I don't know if anyone would be willing to pay more for them. The buyer would have to obviously pay a bit more than I did and then also shipping.
We are trying to make a little extra money for now and for our future move out to a big old house in the country (1-2 years is the current plan). My husband is working on a children's literature website. He's a teacher. And I'm brain storming what I can do to contribute to the household income. Just thinking.
Also, found this fabric (remnants and two sheets).
Maybe I could just cut small pieces out of ALL my thrifted sheets and sell packages of them! I've got quite a collection going.
Have a good weekend everyone.
