I found another beautiful vintage chair! This one was found at an estate tag sale (my second one - I still prefer auctions). I did a double take when I read the price tag: $15. I think that I can use it in the bedroom-to-den conversion, but if not, I'm sure that I'll be able to get my money back out of it.
It's Missouri made! Bishop of Lebanon - Lebanon, MO. When I first saw the chair, I felt certain that it was Kroehler. My mistake. The chair has faded some over time - it was originally more of a darker purple-brown color, as can be seen in this piece that is hidden under the cushion.
I think that it's going to go really well with the Kroehler chair. They're both really comfortable. Now, I'm still looking for that elusive sofa to finish the group.
The First Family album from 1962 - 25 cents.
Vintage car planter - no maker's mark. $1.
New York World's Fair mug - 1964-1965. 25 cents.
I really like this Hazel Atlas white, pink and black sugar bowl. Too bad the matching creamer wasn't there. Oh well, 50 cents.
I'm not exactly sure what exactly this is. A double vase? Who knows. I think that it would be great to store artist's paintbrushes in. I was really attracted to the color. $1 for the whatchamacallit.
Large vintage postcard of Summit Hotel on Mount Summit in Uniontown, PA. Not sure of age, it's unused so there is no postmark to help, but my guess would be 1920s or 1930s. Looks like this place is still around and still open! It's also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, according to their website. A pretty nice piece for $1.
Have a great Monday! It's my last day of Easter vacation before returning to work to begin two fun filled weeks of administering the MAP test to our students.
