My son Drew came across four really interesting bar stools this weekend while thrifting here in Denver. Knowing I'd been scouting for seats for my Econoline, he called me at work and described them to me. As he has a good eye, I planned to go see them ASAP.

The next morning was Saturday, so I made a bee line to the thrift store. Imagine my delight when I came upon the seats you see here. Better yet, they had been marked down by 50% since when Drew saw them a day earlier. I bought four. It's great having a son who find gems like this for me and the price was more than fair. It was, in a word,  ridiculous.
