Stylish Treats: $1 Vintage Industrial Chairs

Oct 31, 2008 by

On a day of tricks and treats, I would like to share with you a vintage industrial treat….that only costs $1!  Currently, this public surplus auction is selling five vintage industrial chairs for only $1.  They remind me of the ones from Anthropologie, except these are authentic and government-issued no less.  The catch is that you have to live in Virginia, as it is pick-up only, but there are many auctions occuring throughout the country for your fun and affordable perusal.   Most of these auctions end at $1 or $5, and thus, it is a true treat, especially in these economic times.  Happy Halloween!!

  7. So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
