~Settee Crazy~

Sheckyville is a little nutz for settees. They fit in those spots where they become useful to pull up a seat and put the tootsies up. It is hard for me not to love the old antique ones and very hard to pass up a bargain on these oldies but goodies.

I am a nut for thrift shops as most know here. The above settee came with two other chairs and I bought them at a local museum for a little craftsman house at one time. Very inexpensive because the museum has many donated and needed to get rid of it. When I say “inexpensive” I mean no more than Walmart or Target. This was one, in fact these all were bargains mainly because I don’t buy retail anymore if I can help it.

This settee was found in a consignment store years ago. What do I love about it: it is down. A bargain indeed. But what I want you to look at is the ottoman. That came in a set of two and was less that 4 burgers at a take out.

These are well used here at Sheckyville and I can truly say they don’t make furniture today like they did yesterday. So bargain up and Pull Up A Seat.

Til next time,

Mrs. Shecky

Pull Up A Seat

    Beautiful finds. I love that ottoman…and the delicate painting in your featured photo.

  2. Very cool and the bargain prices, even more so. I’m absolutely smitten by ottomans! Happy Monday.

      The feet must go up sometimes😊

      1. They are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture ever created!

    Reminds me of a cartoon I saw once where one construction worker says to another,
    “Let’s take an extra hour at lunch today; after all, we don’t build ’em like we used to.” 😂

    1. iammrsshecky says:

      Ha Ha! That’s about right!

    I love the one in the first picture! Beautiful! I agree – furniture is definitely not made like it used to be. That’s why we get most of ours from auctions held from old houses.

    1. iammrsshecky says:

      We do the same here. It is surprising even the smallest things at auctions and antique shops are still around after all these years.

  5. Teresa says:

    Oh yes I agree, they don’t make em like they used too.

    1. iammrsshecky says:

      Not at all Teresa.

    Today’s furniture is in my view, not as well built yet costs far too much. Not so tootsie friendly! 😂

      Agree 100%.
