Bistro Table and Chairs

I took a drive this weekend to a "new to me" shop called Vintage Thymes Market.
They only open one weekend a month for a themed event. This weekend's theme was Farmhouse Holiday.

It's a small shop and by the time I got there the place was p-a-c-k-e-d! I did the quick once over and didn't see anything that caught my eye (except for what was already in the arms of other shoppers of course!). So I stepped out onto the porch for some air and to let the place empty out a bit so I could get a better look and there was this bistro table.

The price tag read "bistro table $75". Then I noticed another tag that read "$11 off today only"...Then I saw the four matching bistro chairs folded and stacked against the store front (sans price tags).

I calmly (right....) walked inside, stood in the doorway and while holding my breath I yelled out in a shaky voice to the woman at the counter...."ARE THE BISTRO CHAIRS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE TABLE?"

And over the din of the chattering shoppers came my answer.... Oh YES!!!

I made my way to the counter (suddenly caring less about the crowd) and happily paid $64 - even used cash!


and when I got home I couldn't wait to set it up and take some photos to share with all of you.

Yes, I'm more than likely going to paint it white but for now I'll enjoy the green.

I think you got a great deal. Although don't you just hate it when anything you would have wanted is already snatched up.
