Look what we bought ...

We went to the Wells Trading Post (and isn't that a wonderful name for a shop) this morning, a mix of antique, junk and second hand goods, and we found this wonderful chair. I've never seen anything like it before, it's such a fun thing. It's French and dates from about the 1930s.


















The back slides forward over the seat to form a table, and there's a wooden tea tray that slides under the seat.

















Now all it needs is some cushions, a table cloth and a tray cloth. Something more to add to the list I think.

I love your new piece of furniture. I've seen them before, but not with so much character. The ones I saw had round chair backs and no decoration, yours is so much more charming.

What a marvellous table/chair. I'm sure Agatha Christie would've described it in one of her books if she saw it. It's so fabulous!
