Bargains or NOT!

The stories you are about to hear are true, only the amounts have been changed to protect the innocent, the innocent being me! 

Sometimes when I think I am getting a bargain, it turns out to not be such a great bargain after all! Can anyone relate? 

My 5 chairs for the low low price of $100.00.


Annie Sloan Paint
New Fabric and cording 
Labor for upholstering

Approximately $400.00 for 5 chairs

My two pillows from eBay for the low low price of $20.00 each.


Cases! Not pillows! My bad! 


Approximately $70.00 for two pillows much smaller than I thought!

Note to self: read description thoroughly before ordering! 

Will I allow these two purchase "fails" to deter my bargain hunting?

  1. I bought a chair with footstool that I did not need at a garage sale for $25 on a Saturday and took it to a Goodwill type place on Tuesday. At least I was smart enough not to waste time on it since I had no place for it. Your chairs look like they were a good candidate to paint the upholstery. you might try that next time.
