Weekend FIND!!!

I stumbled upon quite a surprise this weekend!
I had to stop by JoAnn's while we were out doing our Thanksgiving shopping. I just needed some white thread for my serger, so it wasn't a particularly exciting fabric scavenging trip. But then....I came around the corner to this big ol' box and what caught my eye was this fabric peeking out the top,
  It's a print called "Sew Wow, Sew Now" by Alexander Henry and I've had my eye on it for a bit, but haven't been able to find the yardage locally. Well, now that I've seen it in hand, I want it even more! It's wonderful! But that wasn't the find.

This was!
It's a new sewing chair! I'm so excited too! I really needed one! And it opens for storage inside,
But the best part is the price! You aren't going to believe it!!!

The regular price for the chair was $189. It was on sale for $99....but look closer....see that little sticker on the left? It says "damaged" $25! Once I saw that I had to dig into the box to see what the damage was, and this was it...
Yes, one broken caster! And I think I have one in the basement....if I can find it....if not, hubs says he can get one at Home Depot inexpensively. 

But I'm not done yet! :) Nope. Apparently there was an additional sale going on and the chair rang up $79 plus the "damaged" discount which made it $20, PLUS I had a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase....and since I did remember the thread I actually went for I was at the $25, so I ended up getting myself a new, and much needed sewing chair for $15!!!! And one I really love too!
That's my kind of deal!
I can't wait for my mom to visit this week, she's gonna be so jealous! ;)

Now I've gotta find some more of that fabric....etsy here I come!

Oh WOW! What a deal! I love that fabric (and have a yard hoarded in my stash until I decide the BEST use for it, which means my heirs will one day be having to get rid of it) What a great find!

Too funny! I know my heirs will be doing the same one day! lol! I've already instructed them it is NOT to be taken to a thrift shop but rather given to someone who has the love! I was lucky enough to recently receive some delightful vintage goodies this way and expect the love to carry on! ;)
