2nd Time Around: Patio furniture

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

Last week I wrote about those leather chairs that sold the same day I brought them in. This week, I started out in a neighborhood that I normally don’t go to first, and got lucky again! I bought this vintage patio furniture for a great price! It is in great condition except for the rust spots on the coffee table and a few other small places.

I took it to the Antique Mall where I started out and put it in the outdoor area. I really didn’t have room for it in my booths, so this is a great solution! The owner gets a little higher percentage of the sale, and is always glad to get outdoor pieces since shoppers seem to be looking for furniture like this to fix up.

There were at least two calls about the set the same day I took it in, so I’m confident it will sell soon! If not, I may go get it and paint it! Of course if I do that, the price will have to go up too!

It may end up black to match my shutters on my front porch!

Hi Diane, I just finished my post in the nick of time. we are having a terrible storm here.

The porch set is awesome. Yes, it needs paint but whoever buys it may want to choose their own color. A great find and I especially like the metal for a long life expectancy. Smile!!!

Hugs, Jeanne

Diane, that's a very nice set! I think you did well with this, and it looks very substantial in addition to be good looking. Hope you get a buyer soon, and it sounds like you will!

XO,
