and this boudoir chair were!
I could swear that the rugs were the "booby prize" of the day or the one thing that the owners never thought would sell. I'm sure they thought about putting them in the trash, but then decided to see if anybody would ACTUALLY buy them...for $5 each! I wish they could see them now! These rugs are a good 3'x5' size and were incredibly DIRTY! I wish so badly that I had taken "before" pictures. After taking them outside, scrubbing detergent on them, and power washing them with the waterhose, they look MUCH nicer. I figured for $10, it wouldn't kill me if they ruined, but *I would only suggest this method as a last resort*. Now don't get me wrong, they are still somewhat stained, but they definitely are usable.
The chair was originally $65, this included a long window valance (that an ottoman will be covered with as soon as I can find the perfect one), and the pillows to match. I thought this was a little too high, so I went back on the third day hoping to get it half price...well it was marked $50 and that just wasn't good enough, so with 1 hour left of the sale, I talked them down to $35! I left there a very happy girl! My dear & wonderful hubby cooperated beautifully while helping to load it into our minivan and only asked where I would put ANOTHER chair.
