To Sell or Not to Sell...

For the record, I realize the house is kind of a wreck in these photos. Sorry. It was 1am when I was taking these photos, and I'm still trying to figure out how to arrange this room.

So, I started my very own Etsy store. So far, I've sold only one item, but I've also only had the shop open for a week. I need to add more fun stuff, so I took a thrifting trip yesterday. I found this pair of chairs, and although I planned to stick to smalls on my etsy shop, I couldn't leave these behind. There were three of them, but I only bought these two. The third was in rough shape, while these two are in almost perfect condition. I was initially drawn to the lines of the chairs, and the colors, but when I flipped one over and saw "Made in Denmark" stamped on the bottom, I hoisted them into my cart. They were $18 a piece, which was a bit much for me, but I was assuming I could sell them for more (hopefully). Only problem is that I'm getting attached to them. Danish Modern in my very own living room. I have been trying to research the chairs, but without a name on them, it's kind of useless looking them up. All I know is that they are extremely comfortable, attractive, and solid. I'm trying to trick the hubs into not wanting to part with them either. We'll see...


  1. Keep! $18 is a song for those beauties. I bet you could move them really quick on Craigslist, though, if you do decide to sell.

    ps: love the shag rug. We had an ivory acrylic (ie, vegan) version a few years back but couldn't seem to keep it clean. We were living in IA at the time and didn't have a mud room.

  2. Mmm, thanks for the suggestion! I'm totally not wanting to sell them. Part of me is thinking "maybe some day I'll open a booth and they would be perfect..."

    This rug is a pain, too. It sheds a lot, and since I haven't picked up any kind of backing for it, it slips around. Classy. But they are just so cozy! I have never seen a vegan one, but that's awesome that they exist. If we ever get another one, I'll look into that.

    I love your blog by the way! Thanks for stopping by!
