old friends new chairs (and a sale)

One morning a few weekends ago, I woke up to a text message from an old friend saying that her neighbor was having an estate sale and that there was a chair that didn't sell and for some reason, it made her think of me. She sent a photo along with the message asking if I wanted it, and it just happened to be the exact kind of chair I've been scouring antique stores and estate sales for. Perfect pink tufted velvet, perfect high back, wooden legs, and matching ottoman. I told her, of course I wanted it, and she brought it over that very same day.

I guess it pays to have a consistent old lady aesthetic and have everyone know about it, because I've gotten all sorts of lovely gifts this way. And not only did I get a nice chair, I also got a nice catch-up chat with an old friend. Now if only someone could just come across an old wooden crate or two and think of me... (I need more shelves)

Things are going to be changing around here, shop-wise and blog-wise. I'm not sure sure whether they'll change a little or a lot, but I will be figuring that out very soon. While I work out all the kinks, I figured it would be a good time to make room for new inventory as well. So, I will be having a 'Christmas in July' sale in both shops (that's right, I still have a few trinkets in thefoxparade even though that poor little shop has been so neglected lately). The sales end July 19th at 11PM EST, so hop on over and take a peek! I will be pulling several things at the end of the month to sell locally, so if you've had your eye on something, now's the time! Also, there is a very good chance that this will be the last sale I hold until November. You can find the shops here:
