Auction Deal






My mama's best friend moved to Florida this weekend and had an auction at her house to sell the remaining items. We went over there the night before and the only thing that I saw that I wanted was an old white chair that was sitting on the front porch. I couldn't go to the auction on Saturday, but sent Hubby and my son. I told him to bid on the chair. He called and said are you sure you want this thing...it's falling apart! I told him it wasn't to sit in, it was for looks! Well, when the time came to bid on the chair, they put everything that was on the front porch together. He got all of this for $15.00!! The table, "my" chair, two rocking chairs and they made him take the frog since it was on the front porch...LOL!!! I was so excited!!! I put the chairs on my front porch and the table out at the pool. But I brought the chair inside....that's it in my header. I love it! For more fab finds, please visit Linda at Coastal Charm to see everyone else's deals. I'm also linking to Faded Charm for White Wednesday. Afterall, everything we bought is white!!!

  2. I have such a thing for chairs. They make great accent pieces or the stage for a little vignette of books or plants. You hit the jackpot!

  10. Love your chairs. It is great when they combine a lot of items at an auction. It scares away some of the bidders that do not want to have to take a lot of items home and that usually keeps the price down.

  11. These chairs are lovely. I think everything painted white is better. I have always wanted to go to an auction.

  12. I love that little vignette on your porch, with the little candlelight! The chairs are great, and the legs on that table are so curvaceous! And lucky you, you got it all without even having to go to the auction. I think you're on to something there!
    Happy WW!

  24. Hi Gina, All three of your new chairs are great! I can't believe the bargain you got! And I'm sure you can find a use for the table. I guess the little froggy was just meant to come to your house! Isn't it funny how we collect things?
