I like to visit Goodwill while on the road. This is a fairly new habit for me. While in Tempe, Arizona I found these chairs.
The blue chair was $12.00 and would be great re-upholstered while the pink chairs were $4.00 each. Crazy talk. Sadly, chairs cannot fit inside my luggage. However, here is a list of things I have fit in my luggage:
2’6″ x 4’3″ Martha Stewart Astronomy rug from a Homegoods in Connecticut
Two pieces of pottery from Goodwill from Illinois (One piece broke – my first thing to break which I think is pretty good)
Reverse painting of The Capitol from an antique store in Colorado (I was particularly nervous about this, but it was the first thing I ever packed home. I was too fresh to know better.)
Four bud vases from Goodwill
A Tennessee souvenir plate (The Mister collects them)
Samsonite briefcase/laptop bag from a TJMaxx in Kentucky (gift for The Mister)
Giodorno’s pizza from Chicago (It comes home as a carry on, but I’ll count it for the entertainment value.)
8 yards of fabric from a JoAnn’s in Delaware (not as easy as thought)
Tortillas from Houston
Of course, this list does not compose of everything. These are basic highlights of what I remember packing. I have a zipped soft sided Baggallini bag I carry with me for “overage.” Thank you Southwest for allowing two bags for free. This week I’m at a conference with my team in Orlando. I doubt I’ll have time to shop anywhere, but I’ll keep you posted.
This chair is found on Overstock and is $194.99. Thankfully, this does not include Angelo.
The Pottery Barn chair is a softer, prettier shade of yellow. It’s not the dark, golden color from Overstock. The print on the Overstock chair is more poppy than the other. However, the Overstock chair is over $400.00 cheaper.
If you like comparing products then you will enjoy Copy Cat Chic. Reichel B. with Copy Cat Chic compares great products.
This yellow and white floral print chair has 4.1 stars and is $276.99. I would like these for the side room. I have had my eye on some yellow fabric. The fabric for the slipcover will cost me around $200.00 each.
