Vintage Leather Sling Chair & Retro Tapestry Macrame Wall Hanging


Thought I'd share some vintage treasure today. I love a bargain vintage buy and both of these items fit the bill... the leather sling back chair is one of a pair, purchased on Ebay for $20 each!! They are super comfy and while the legs need a little TLC - also known as rust remover, they are one of my favourite vintage buys to date. This was such a lucky find, the couple selling these chairs were heading overseas and clearing out their bulky items... they had purchased these chairs from a vintage boutique a few years prior which I'd say means they were definitely not $20 each at the time of purchase ;-).



The retro wall hanging was a Vinnies bargain at $3! Mum pointed it out as we perused the shelves and I'm loving the geo /aztec/ navajo inspired design. Not sure if it's classed as macrame, embroidery or weaving but I'm thrilled to add it to my collection. We were quite a way from the city when we spotted this gem hence the bargain and the find itself... doubt it would have lasted more then a minute in the inner city op shops.
