Michiel gave me the disheartening news that the grey couch I liked at Jysk, was no longer.
So I had glanced online to see if anyone happened to be selling anything that would work for us.
First, I spotted a ‘kidney’ couch, in good shape and for only $50, which we considered unique and well priced enough to look into the cost of re-upholstering.
$1200, plus material, was the estimate we received back and that was more than I was willing to put towards a couch that was not only used, but not my dream couch 😏

For being a yard sale attraction and not a specifically handmade/new item focused event, I did pretty well with my creations.
Greatly easing the fear of people not wanting any and the day being a bust 😉
Mom took her turn to go out and peruse and then Mike and I went out.
