A Contender

Hunting for the perfect chairs is hard, very hard. I’ve been to thrift stores, consignment shops, and flea markets. You might find one great chair but what I really want is a pair. Which leads me to think I might need to go retail. The above example is right up my alley. It is classic with a bit of flair. Just like me.

But I'm not willing to throw in the towel just yet. Brimfield is next week!

for pairs, your best chance is estate sales in people's homes. they are more likely to have a matching set and tend to be in better conditions than the ones who end up in shops. As a matter of fact, decorators often raid the estate sales and hoard their winnings in warehouses so that when a client is looking, they have a stash.
