2nd Time Around: Wicker Sofa

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking your post of your 2nd hand treasures with Mr. Linky below.

I’ve been wanting a three cushion wicker sofa for a while and have been shopping for one at resale shops and estate sales. Recently I finally found one at an estate sale in our town. It needs some work done on the cushions, but overall is in very good condition! The best part is that I bought it the second day of the sale and was able to negotiate a price for less than half of the original asking price.

Good morning Diane, I do love your gorgeous wicker couch. You just don't see them anymore. Usually it is a settee. It is the perfect look for you beautiful home and porch.

Thank you for your visit A couple of posts ago. I didn't get back to you. I love posting and visiting but time on the computer goes so fast and I don't get anything done. sigh. I am trying to keep a schedule. I do miss your posts Diane but I can understand very well how burn out can happen in blogging. Take a bit of time to recover, but please come back.

Love you, Jeanne

That a big one! Good for you.

Morning girl....what a great find..I have never seen one that big! It is beautiful! As long as I can remember I have loved white wicker...it just seems so Southern and so classic....hope all is well on your side of the mountain and that you have a fantastic week.

OMG, it is beautiful!! Your persistence paid off. I drooled over a 3 piece set of wicker out of state last week that was on summer clearance.

I kinda messed up the title but hope you like my post today.

A screened porch is on my must have list next time I move!!! Hope all is well with you; I must go see what you've been up to! Sincerely, Jeannette
