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!

Oh, I love it! Thrifters are not odd....I think they're pretty intelligent...leaves more money for something else! Oh, wait, of course, I'd say that...I'm one too! LOL Congrats on your wonderful finds.

Thanks! I was lucky to find that couch...my mom called me from the garage sale and told me I might like it......she was right!
