In her retirement, my mom finally has the chance to be a full-time vintage enthusiast. She hits up every local thrift shop, estate sale and garage sale on the weekends looking for treasures, which she refurbishes and puts in a booth for tourists passing through town. She has a great eye for design and has just come to life pursuing her new business, which is really an excuse for her to constantly update her home with the treasures that haven’t quite made it across town to the booth quite yet.
Because she’s down in the trenches of estate sales and the like right now, I have a little wish list with her. She keeps her eye out for vintage items that I’d love for my own home and texts me if she finds something she thinks I’d like. Luckily, we don’t have the same interiors style, so there’s no competition for items. That’s how I have a pair of vintage Lane coffee and side tables waiting for me right now at her house. Last time I saw her, I mentioned that I was interested in a peacock chair if she ever came across one. Her response: ‘oh, I saw one of those last week for $25’.
How did I miss the peacock chair of my life? Now I keep pining (and pinning) for a peacock chair. They’re just so pretty and give such a bohemian vibe to any room.
Do you like them? Which one is your favorite?
