prowling strolling through my Goodwill the other day I spotted THIS little pile of fabric…. It just so happened to have precious little legs poking out. Upon further examination I could tell this piece was sooooo old vintage. :) The price tag said $3.99, so I loaded her right up!
I started pulling off the nasty little cover….. Do you see what was peeking out??
YUP! A $10 bill!!! I couldn’t believe it. I ran over to get my neighbor Charlotte. Someone else just HAD to see this!
I left it like this for Andrew to see when he got home…. I was all bragging to Charlotte and some other friends while Andrew started pulling the rest of the cover off…. You will not BELIEVE what he found:
Yup. That’s an envelope… It was tucked under that skirty thing…. AND what was IN that envelope you ask??
$20 more dollars!!! We could not stinkin’ believe it… We were laughing hysterically at this point… We went nuts over $30. Have you ever?? It was fabulous. Goodwill PAID me to take this bench!
This was written on the envelope: Thanks, Ronnie! I guess Mrs. B made a habit out of stuffing her cash under that bench!
We kept stripping layer after layer after layer of upholstery off this baby… It was covered….
This is what we’re left with. It’s actually in ok shape….it needs a new top cut. I’m thinking about just cleaning the wood up and making a little slipcover for the top.
This little lady may just have to stay put at my house. If this isn’t a good luck charm I don’t know what is!
love and hugs,
