So, I was on my way to collect the mail and I noticed a posting for a couch on the bulletin board. I took a closer look and to my delight, it was this funky shaped vintage treasure! Or well, it seemed so from what I could tell from a black and white printout, and we all know how forgiving black and white pictures are..
I called the number and the guy said that I was the only person to inquire about the couch, which actually isn’t that shocking on account of the fact that its been brought to my attention more than once that I love “weird” things. (what all does the term “weird” actually entail anyways?) The man went on to tell me that he was almost finished moving by this point and that if I was really interested, that I should come right away. The next obvious thing to do was rush home and calmly beg Seth (my hubby) to walk across the apartment complex half asleep to look at some couch he knew nothing of, and with fingers crossed, it would be the vintage couch score of the year!
Luckily I’m blessed enough to have a guy that supports my excitement about these types of things, and the next thing you know were standing in an empty apartment in front of one of the cutest velvet, mint green sofas I’ve ever seen! (also, the only mint green sofa i’ve ever seen) I mean, it was pristine! Not a speck of dirt anywhere which I cannot begin to describe how much thats worth, its not easy being slightly germaphobic AND a thrifter. The best part about it is that it cost a mere $50.00! Yes, F-i-f-t-y. I almost passed out from excitement!
I would have liked to have gotten a better snapshot before trekking it all the way back to our apartment with it, but Ferdinand (the man we bought the sofa from who also helped Seth carry it home) couldn’t fathom why I would possibly want to be taking pictures of an old couch in 109° weather. Alas, I will have to post more photos once i’ve done some rearranging and re-decorating the living room around a sofa that isn’t tan. Here is some fun inspiration i’ve found on Knack:
