My family has been in need of a couch for about a year. (We kept hoping the right one would come up on Craigslist or the thrift shop.) On a whim, we stopped at a nearby estate sale. Estate sales aren’t my favorite venues, simply because the circumstances aren’t always fun. However, we are so thankful they had this couch and two chairs.
We paid a small sum, and then spent our day getting the three items home. I think more family bonding happens moving furniture than many other activities! The couch and chairs are soft, just right for a short nap, and now we have seating for our large family!
