I bought Betty, a funky mid-century modern chair, at a yard sale a few weeks ago.
Yes, someone was getting rid of her for the price of a hashbrown at Mickey D’s.
Betty has killer legs and is very stylishly dressed for the era, even though she may look a little chubby at certain angles. Don’t we all?
Betty is not perfect though. She’s a little rough around the edges. She’s seen a lot in her lifetime.
She was made by the B. L. Marble Chair Company up the road from here in Bedford, Ohio. And I like a girl with Ohio connections.
Now, I’ve got two decisions. Do I keep her or sell her?
And if I sell her, do I recover her first or let her go to someone who appreciates original fabric and such.
Either way, I think she’s sort of sexy.
For a middle aged girl.
What do you think?
Keep her because she’s cool and funky? Sell her because she’s
mean to Sally worth a few more bucks than I paid for her?
