Nichols & Stone Bench for $19

When this beautiful stenciled bench was brought out on the floor at Goodwill yesterday, a lady made a beeline for it. Dang nab it. So I walked toward her, nonchalantly, so that if she decided against it, I'd be the first to pounce on it. Score! I love it. Love it. Love it. It's not an antique, as this furniture was mass-produced, but I do love black furniture painted or stenciled. So very Hansel and Gretel or Heidi-ish.

I can't help but think you must have knocked her out or something. Who would pass up this piece? It's gorgeous.

Great find! You need to take me thrifting. All I ever find are books.

That is a score!!!and 19.00. It would have been double that at our GW. Now that's my kind of shopping. Have a wonderful week! Jackie
