Running is Good for You

I've said it before, and I'm saying it again.

This time, we found two original Bertoia Diamond chairs
at a yard sale after a run in the glorious Forest Park.
Serious score.
Happy weekend, all!

good grief. I'm going to start running around like mad if finding vintage furniture is a payoff.
REALLY good score, susan.

I think I might have passed out if I ever ran into a find like that. Thrift gods were looking down on you today for sure!

What a fabulous find! Amazing! And I really like your pillows there. Those are very cool.

You have the most amazing thift find luck - all I ever find is other peoples junk, never treasure.

Happy belated birthday!

Great find! And mint condition, no less.

My mom walks with her girlfriends on Saturdays. They always carry a $20 bill with them, since they find yard sales and things laying out. After their walk, they have to drive back if the piece is too big!

Perhaps you just have some good karma ;)

glorious! I'm leaving for an 8-miler now but doubt I'll run into anything quite as fabulous.

Happy running, happy thrifting!

I know running is good for you, but do you have any tips to make it more fun? Because not all of use find such great treasures on our runs.

Seriously, though, those chairs are great. What a lucky find!!

Lesley said...

Wow!!! More to add to your gorgeous collection! I wish you could find things like that in the uk. I mean in a shop even! If i came across those beauties whilst I was walking I would probably pass out from the shock!

Erin said...
