The idea girl says
Okay I have a story to tell about this chair and couch set. First of all I gave mine away when we moved to someone that NEEDED one (our friends Garth, Kathy). Then a few days later Harry’s brother Darren gave us this set. it was super comfortable but one problem… it had wool in it and I’m allergic to it.
I couldn’t sit or lay down on the couch even with a thick comforter I bought for it from value village for $7.
So I tried to sell it to an antique dealer for $200 so I could use the cash to buy another couch set at the Bargain Central Store in Fort Erie but he didn’t want it nor one of Retro Mike’s Collectors.
Then I asked Randy whose daughters just moved here from Hamilton and he said they needed some furniture so i gave them the couch matching chair and two gold 1970s retro style chairs as well (I bought the one chair for $5 at Value Village and the other was a gold rocking chair that (a set of two, I kept one) Darren gave to us as well.
So the moral of the story is this. The couch was for aunt sue to sleep on while taking care of Daisy. She couldn’t take care of Daisy any more (cannot walk the dog because of her bad knees) and just came to visit once or twice. Then winter was bad in fort erie and it was loads of snow. Then i decided were going to be busy video blogging and dont’ have much time to have someone sleep over once in a while for four days.. So I decided it’s easier for me not to have company over because I like having my own space to myself with hubby and daisy and that’s it…
It was hard but I had to tell aunt sue the truth and she took it okay. (lost her resort away from town) but I’m sure thing will work out for her in other matters. 🙂
Anyways I decided to ask Randy if he could use the couch set because I knew his daughters were coming to stay and needed furniture. We showed them pictures (the couch was in perfect shape nothing wrong with it) and they liked it and so we gave it to them. (they picked it up in their truck)
the funny thing is Randy was getting rid of his truck the next day, so we managed to move the couch set to the girls place just in the nick of time!
anyways, see the pillows below? I looked for 8 months for yellow pillows for this dam couch set. I bought the pillows a week before I got rid of the couch set LOL
I gave them the pillows too with the price tags still attached ($1 each) from the Grimsby Benevolent Fund Thrift store which is mapped out on my idea girl canada wordpress travel and tourism blog along with restaurants and maps of what to do in Grimsby. 🙂
