for the past eight years.
It was in a shop in Texas,
Silver Star Salvage.
I have never purchased furniture on Etsy
so wasn't quite sure what to expect.
What I could see was that this chair was
VERY reasonably priced.
It would be shipped via Greyhound Bus Lines.
The cost of the chair, plus shipping and handling
still made the chair a bargain.
It's a vintage 1930's lawyers chair,
and still very functional.
I took a chance and ordered it.
I have never received anything packaged
as well as this chair.
Even the man at the bus station was impressed!
(I presently have what I consider
a very "pricey" chair on order from
Ballard for my living room.
It will be interesting to see if it is
packed half so well.)
Underneath was a thick pad to protect the chair.
The chair is perfect.
Its size is perfect for my small studio/office,
it rolls perfectly (a big concern for me),
and is perfectly comfortable.
There were a few nicks and worn areas,
something the seller had clearly stated.
That was not a concern because I
intended to "redo" the chair somewhat.
Hint: chalk paint,
which I'll tell you about in a later post.
To sum up,
please don't forget to check out
Etsy when you are in the market for
a piece of furniture.
I am fully delighted with the service I got and
with my new chair!
