Can you get a new living room for $152.50?
You can if you are into thrifting! I thought I'd share my newest finds with you. I went to a garage sale and found this sofa....only 2 years old and the same King Hickory brand as my old one. It was on it's 15th year and still going strong, so I thought I'd better not pass up the chance to replace it with a "new" one for just 150 dollars. And it's in really great condition.
This little chair I just picked up at an auction on Saturday. Now, I guess I must be the only one who thinks this vintage stuff is soooo cute, because I was the only one who bid and I won it for 2.50. It's so much brighter than our old recliner and just as comfy. It's really clean, and look how well it goes with our vintage ottoman!
OK, I know it's not a whole new living room for 152.50 dollars, but it is two big pieces and it feels like a new room to me. As a bonus, I sold my old couch in just a few days for eighty dollars, so I suppose you could say this really just cost 72.50! I know we thrifters are kind of odd...always bragging about not spending much!
