Saw a rocking chair in a second had shop yesterday that i completely fell in love with. After mentioning it and its very reasonable price to the old man we went back this morning to get it. I talked about it all the way there and could barely conceal my excitement as we rounded the corner to the shop entrance. There it was, not where i left it though. Now it was on the pavement outside in front of a woman who was smoking. I pointed and said "that's my chair" as i stood routed to the spot. The woman then calmly picked up "my" chair and walked off. I watched it go - devastated. I wandered around the shop hoping it was not the one and only of its type - but it was, i could have cried.
Have found one similar on eBay now and am waiting to see if i can buy that one - there is always another chance i guess !!!
BTW, i did get a small Buddha figure that i have been wanting for a while. Will keep you posted about the chair.
