I promised to share the rest of my, why-I-didn’t-purchase-the-yellow-love-seat story, here you go …
So, about 100 yards past the entrance of The Vintage Barn show/sale, I see what appears to be exactly what I’m looking for, but am sure I won’t find–I mean, what are the chances I’m going to run into a yellow love seat that is sort-of retro, but not over-the-top old (for my new office boasting a odd collection of contemporary + vintage.)
My heart starts racing and I’m not really sure what to do, so I step back, squint my eyes (attempting to picture it sitting in my space), turn around a couple of times and think, Ok … no one else appears to be looking at this. I’ll walk away and just think through this– after all, the love seat comes in a set with a chair (which I’m not too keen on purchasing.) I check the price tag and decide I’m definitely good with paying for both (if I have to.) I walk to the next booth to find Hillary in whom I confide, “I think I’m buying furniture for my office!” She walks back with me and I locate the vendor — I start to ask about breaking up the set and she says…
“I just sold it”
Are you kidding me?
Who bought it?
I must know. I want to tell her what good taste she has and how happy I am for her (I really did say that!)
Anyway, a booth or two later, I see this cute girl trying on a bright green hat, which catches my attention for obvious reasons. I think to myself, “she looks very familiar!” and then I meander on.
The booths are set up in a giant circle. Almost two hours later, as we are leaving I hear,
“Is that Stacy Julian?”
I turn around to find the cute lady I had seen earlier, standing very near “my love seat,”
Her name is Melody, she’s a scrapbooker and we’ve met a couple of times around Spokane.
In the course of the conversation, I say to Melody, “See that adorable yellow love seat? It was supposed to be mine, but someone else bought it.” You probably know what Melody says next…
“That’s mine. I bought that set!”
Let’s take our picture on your new love seat …
And pretty please, send me a photo of your porch and your newly painted green door.
Which she did.
I think Melody and I may be kindred spirits.
I need to pay her a visit and sit on her love seat sometime this summer!
