For a while now I have really wanted a bar hieght director's chair for shows. I have a wooden one from Ikea that folds, but it's a little tough on the tooshie, lol. ;) Last week they were on sale at Cost Plus World Market, so I took full advantage. ;) I feel a little guilty for spending the money since things are so tight. On the other hand, I wasn't going to make it through very many more markets without it.
At the Market that I do every Sunday throughout the summer, the tables are stationary, and tall. It causes you to either sit and look UP at anyone who walks by, or stand the entire day. At most shows, I am happy and willing to stand and greet each and every customer. Every week at the Market I end up standing the ENTIRE day... but this gets old quickly when you do 2-3 a week! Well, since this is such a relaxed atmosphere, I decided this chair would be the perfect remedy. I can still get out of the chair to help someone, but this way I can see them coming more easily!
And of course, I had to give it my own flair, by sewing the fabric pieces myself. ;) I used twill for the bottom/back, and Michael Miller's Carnival for the front. I love this print, and it has so many great colors, it will always 'match' my booth. ;)
