They say patience is a virtue…. and in this case it sure was. I’ve been looking for barstools but the ones I found in the stores were so expensive. So.. that’s when my friend “patience” kicked in. I stumbled across another estate sale and found these great barstools. Got so excited over finding them and the price was perfect – $25.00 – They had to come home with me. Cleaned them up and they were perfect
