Your Wait Is Over! Here It Is! What You've Been Waiting For All Your....Monday... Status: Aaaaaavailable.
Even the Tag is cool! "Galaxy Designs"! Sparkley Starbursts! Awesome Retro Font. It's got it all. Oh oh...the sofa and chair ain't too shabby either. Check it out.
Sweet no? Orange you glad you....no no no...no orange jokes. But it is a sweet color. And
what an amazing classically Vintage Modern shape. So pleasing to the eye.
With three estate sales and one auction (almost didn't go, but Illuminate was there and it
was a beautiful home...you see) worth hitting Saturday morning something had to nudge me
in a specific direction. This matching Kroehler sofa and chair set was the tie breaker. I
wanted to get it but I didn't want it so bad that I was willing to camp out for it. Sometimes
you just gotta get a little sleep. So we didn't get up until 7am! Still we got there before most
and managed to secure 5th / 6th in line. Actually...something strange happened at this sale.
The sellers opened THREE lines into the house. One in through the Front door, One through
the Back door and One into the Basement. I'm glad that I didn't get up early and camp out
to be first in line as I would have probably blown a gasket upon hearing about this. Anybody
else have some strong feelings about this idea? Turns out it didn't matter at all since I
acquired every item I came for and had the opportunity to purchase any of the items that I
was interested in. Funny how a ton of people can show up to a sale and not touch a single
item you are there for!
The sofa and chair aren't mint. The Are vintage after all. They have some minor issues. There
is some fabric wear on the upper edge of the front. Not a big deal but there it is. Some
people are particular about such things and this Is going on the ads. I'll never try to hide an
imperfection to make a buck. I might try to Fix it but not hide it. I think with some detailed
use of a permanent orange marker it could look like new! I'll leave that to the next owner.
The cushions are coughing up the orange dust too. They might just need to be restuffed.
I've got the foam for that if the next owner wants to pick some up at the same time or they
might be able to talk me into cutting it for them.
