As an avid thrifter, I’m always on the lookout for new places and events where I can pick up some of the random retro junk that sets my heart aflutter. I recently discovered Sidney Street Sales.

The picture displayed what was possibly the most loud, gaudy and tacky sofa set I’ve ever seen. That’s coming from a man who owns a set of lime green velvet parlor furniture. The sofa was a gold velvet sectional with carved wooden accents. The love seat was round with similar wooden accents. I decided right then and there that the sofa would be mine. About an hour later I recanted my decision as there was no chance in hell I’d ever get it.

I'm so excited you got this! I saw it in on the Sidney Street FB page and was wishing I had room for it. Can't wait to see it in person :)ReplyDelete
If you ever want to sell it let me know. :)ReplyDelete
This looks great in that room. I saw this online and thought it would look great with a gold and green striped "throne" chair that I have been meaning to repair ( upholstery is great- just a bit wobbly structurally) Well if you are interested in a chair for that corner- let me know:)ReplyDelete
This was a great read, by the way. Your writing style kept me interested to the very end. Thanks for sharing.
