    Whoopie! My greatest yard sale find ever! (not a sewing machine)

    I'm still on the hunt for 'my' featherweight and while hunting at my first spring yard sale I came across these two awesome chaise lounges, IMHO. I love old vintage. My yard really, really, really needed them.

    I have seen similars at my favorite antique shop for up to $150.00.

    These were $5.00 each. Tell me they aren't perfect!

    Gotta love those bargains, You got a steal though, Great yard, they are perfect in it. Love your wooden chairs also. Maybe they are plastic, but they look wooden.

    Looks like you hit the jack pot! Congrats! We bought one for $30 dollars at an auction a few weeks ago and I thought we had done good.

    I haven't seen that kind of lounge before and they look great. I will have to keep my eyes open for a sale.
