Jackpot! I think I hit the jackpot!

What an absolutely gorgeous fall day here. After work I decided to go to my favorite Amish store...Lizzie's cause I always find goodies there. So on my way over the mountain I enjoyed the beautiful fall scenery and an occasional squirrel or bird. Saw some pretty farm houses and lots of cows and horses. Well with much anticipation I pulled into Lizzies and got out and admired all the fall goodies on her porch. The pumpkins were only .75cents and the cornstalks were plentiful but I didn't need any more of these items. So on in I went...well I gotta tell ya the place was filled to the rim with goodies. One quick scan and what to my wondering eyes do I see? Here's a sneak peek...hmmmmm.....

First I spotted the fabric...not bad looking then it beckoned me closer. Dare I even look at the price tag! Oh my a steal! Ok Theresa, just calm down I told myself. Well, I had to sit down and check this wonderful piece out alittle closer. Ahhhh...its comfy too! I stood up snatched the price tag off and made my way around to the other goodies. Quick scan around and I spy a wooden bowl...$8.00 its mine too! Now I'm just too excited to look any further so up to the counter I go with tag in tow and my bowl. I laid the price tag on the counter as if it was a trophy so proud of my find. Lizzie laughs and says you got a pretty one there. I can't hide my giddiness and say I know and I can't wait to haul it home and put it in its proper place in my livingroom. The transaction is finished and its all mine! Now to get it in the van. I had to go out and stow the backseats to make it fit and get Lizzie to help me carry my "trophy" out. I can't seem to thank her enough and she says she glad she could make my day!
Here's a quick look at my leg!!! Love it!

And now a side view. What do you think?

And finally a photo of it in its new home. So how do you like my new "old" chair? It's a Broyhill and I paid...are you ready for this....are you sure....ok hold on to your seat or better yet sit down....$25.00 yep you read this right only $25 George's for this baby!

Well that was my big exciting news for the day. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather wherever you may be. God's Blessings!
Hugs ♥T

  9. Theresa,

    What a beauty ! A great find for a 25 dollar chair !

    Okay, How much will it cost for info to where Lizzie's may be located in PA.. ?

    I am almost centrally located right off the busiest highway in PA.. the speedway of PA.. I-80. Not far from the highest point east of the Mississippi.

    It would be nice to go to a different store ! We do not have much in the way of neat stores living here in the jingweeds.

    Love your blog ~ I am going to put it on my favorites list, if you don't mind.


  10. Love your new chair!!! OK old but new to you. I LOVE great deals like those. Though I need to slow down a little I have nowhere left to put anymore furniture.

  11. Awesome find - your chair is perfect for you home. Just beautiful!

  12. LOL! I just had to laugh as you told your story. You sound like me and my giddiness over great deals!! That's why I have to shop alone, because my friends think I'm crazy when I get excited over good prices.

    You did hit the jackpot!! Awesome deals on both pieces but especially that wonderful chair! Way to go girl!
