For the past couple of weeks, whenever we go to the warehouse where the church sale is on Sundays and Tuesdays, I have eyed an upholstered rocker in the back corner of the warehouse.  When I first laid eyes on it, the price was $15.00, and recognizing that the fabric it was covered in was a throw back to the 70's, I didn't give it much thought until I sat in it.  I fell in love with it from that point forward.
I like a firm chair, and this chair had the exact firmness I love for my back, and the fact that it was a rocker was even better.  But what is a girl to do when she lives in a 400 square foot house, and no extra room for even a chair, without the living area looking cluttered?  Every time we went to the church sale, I sat in that rocker and pondered what to do.  Finally, I had to follow my heart, and this morning, with a new price tag of only $7.00 on it, I purchased the chair and took it to Cori's garage.

I've decided, that the first chance I get, and when we start turning a profit from the retail space, I'll hit up the upholsterer that Cori used to recover an old vintage couch we found at a thrift store.  I have already envisioned the fabric I want on it, and will enjoy sitting in it in her garage until the day comes that I can put that fabric on it and take it home with me to Usk.
Oh, take a look at this great wood trestle table we found today.  Won't it look great painted and distressed with a little bench seat and two chairs?  This is just one of the many projects we have lined up to work on in the weeks to come.  Both of our retail spaces in the consignment store were restocked this morning and we are just waiting to have a another great week of sales in what is becoming our best month of sales so far!

On the trucking side of things, Roy and Craig kept that load of meat from Sara Lee in Tolleson, AZ and delivered it in Clackamas, OR Monday morning.  After they were empty, they were sent up to Yakima, WA for a load of apples and then drop the trailer in the company yard in Bloomington, CA which they did this evening.  Then they will have a USF Reddaway load at 3am tomorrow morning and take it into Spokane early Thursday morning.  That will set them up to go by the company yard to pick up the new registration for the truck and some other licensing paperwork that they need to have on board for the new year.
