Love Or Hate? Vintage Hand Chair
My friends, this week I bought something I 100% did not need… a vintage hand shaped chair! I first spotted this style of chair in Jonathan Adler’s home, it might have been on his Instagram, or maybe in a book, but either way, I wanted it, needed it and couldn’t stop thinking about it! And yes, I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since I bought this peacock chair. What can I say, I love statement chairs!
Admittedly, this chair is totally Marmite, I LOVE it, but I totally understand how you could also absolutely hate too. I see how some people could see it as silly, or ugly or even dated, but what can I say, to me it’s unique, vintage and a bit of a conversation piece, plus I love the shape it adds into the room!
Where I Bought My Vintage Hand Chair
I bought my chair from the most obvious place ever, my go-to for all my holy-grail items… EBAY! I paid just over £100 for it and then another £107 getting it delivered. Sure I could have driven half way across the country and shoved it in my smart car passenger seat (probs upside down!), but actually, I figured it would be easier and less dangerous to just pay for a delivery (I use Anyvan). So, all in I paid over £200 for this bad boy, but what can I say; I really wanted it! I’m sure I could have waited a while I found one cheaper, or perhaps found one slightly more locally, so delivery would have been cheaper, but hell, I wanted it, I bought it, I love it!
Saved Searches, Location filters and Recommended Items
Just a quick chat about eBay and how to find the best items on there. Personally, I LOVED saved searches, just type into the search bar, press the heart and you have a saved search! You can either check it manually once in a while or you can set up an alert. For bigger items, I LOVE the location filters for giving me items in the area so I save on delivery costs. And finally, if i see something I love but it’s out of my price bracket, scroll down and see what eBay has a recommended items. Sometimes things pop up here which I never saw via the search words and I have had some great bargains this way!
I hope that helps and also… WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY VINTAGE HAND CHAIR!???
