My Craigslist addiction was in full force on the weekend, I couldn't be more excited
about this pair of vintage Henredon wingbacks I scored. I was immediately smitten with
the vibrant colors, birds and peonies, and for $40 each I couldn't pass them up!
This photo was buried in an ad among several other items for sale (with a vague title)
I just happened to scroll through.
The gentleman I met said he was selling for his 88 year old mother, who'd purchased them
in the '60s. Based on the details and down cushions I'm guessing they were a custom order.
When I asked him about their pristine condition, he said,
"They were in the parlor and no one was allowed to sit in them!"
We didn't waste any time breaking them in!
I've always thought a pair of chairs would be perfect in our front bay window,
but it's caused quite the dilemma of how arrange everything.
Clearly, I have a tad too many Craigslist scoooores on my hands!
Stay tuned, and I'll be back to share more when I get this chaos under control. :)
