I’m getting a new sectional for my Mahalo Lounge, so I had to get rid of the sofa we’ve had in the living room for the past 15 years. Boo hoo. We loved this sofa. And when the furniture maker came to talk to me about my new sectional, he said this sofa was a really good one — with eight-way hand-tied springs, a super solid frame, all that. I decided to put it on craigslist and that, if it didn’t sell there relatively promptly, I would donate it to a local charity. But howdy hudee: Within 10 days had a bite on my craigslist ad. Hey: This is the first time I’ve ever sold something on craigslist!
A very nice young man who knew mid mod bought it from me for his apartment. I like knowing it went to an appreciative house. He sent me this photo of the sofa in its new home sitting happily under a Charley Harper travel poster. Remember that story from a while back? I checked a few links — and you can still >> buy some of these posters direct from the U.S. Government — free shipping even! A great deal!
Bye bye, sofa, we loved you.
P.S. I have not restarted painting yet. But I’m going to start today. That’s because: I also have to get my taxes done. Yikes, I’d rather paint than work on my taxes! So now, painting now goes to the top of the list — and procrastination: to tax prep.
