It's my goal to not buy new- but get almost everything from garage sales, thrift stores, and craigslist.
So far, so good.
I have two $80 bar stools from Pier One that I got for $15 each on craigslist. Win!
I also have six dining chairs- the kind I have always wanted- $250 for the set on craigslist. Win!
Emeco for $470 (Yes, that's ONE chair!), or from other vendors for around $200 each, but these were used and a great bargain at just under $42 each- gum included. Yup. They were quite grungy and some had years of icky splashed stuff and gum on the undersides, but they cleaned up nicely and are ready to be moved into the new abode.

|Underneath. Can you spot the white gum? Some chairs had 3 chunks of gum in a variety of colors!|

Maybe next week we can get into the place and start taking measurements!
