When I went to college in Texas and then later lived in Virginia and DC, traditional furnishings were in abundance. But, having been back in CA for almost 8 years now (dang, really?!), I've been on the search for my chair and haven't ever seen one! Thus began my online search...
So on eBay and Craigslist, etc, there are plenty of lyre back chairs...for like $1,400. Um, no bueno. However, I did find this ahem, charming BEFORE for like 14 bucks. Sadly, it was far away and I knew the shipping would exceed the actual cost. BUT, I found out that Greyhound offers low-er cost shipping alternatives!!! My chair showed up a few days after I bought it at the Santa Ana Greyhound station. SO EASY!
Please girl, this will soon look remarkably different!!! Don't be hatin!
Then I remembered that my friend Sarah sent all her boxes from Sacramento to DC via Amtrak when she moved home. It was WAY cheaper than movers or shipping through the mail. So cool, huh?!
