It’s a Small World After All

11 Jul

The internet is a wild place.  At the same time it can connect us with people from afar and introduce you to people in your own backyard.  In my last post I lamented passing on a fabulous vintage sofa a few years back that was at a thrift store.  Here it is if you don’t recall:

Would you believe that the person who did buy this sofa stumbled across my blog?  Yep, Jamie wrote me to say:

“Hi Brooke! I was looking at mid-century modern sites for northwest Indiana and stumbled on your awesome blog. My husband and I live in Schererville and love all things mid-century as well. Funny thing though…as I read your recent post, I realized that we bought the exact sofa that you featured in your post.  I did a major double take and had to run out and look at our sofa again. We must have bought it right after your husband photographed it!”

Can you believe it?  Jamie was nice enough to send me some photos of the sofa in it’s new home:

And the front view:

I am so happy that this sofa went to someone that loves and appreciates it for all of it’s retro goodness.  That boomerang coffee table with the hairpin legs is pretty fantastic too!  Jamie also has a blog about the fabulousness of all things 1950’s.  Check out “Musings of a Mid-Century Mom.”  Thanks Jamie!
