SOLD! Sweet Little Caned Chair with Black Patterned Pillows – Now a Project Chair?

I loved this chair when I saw it at the auction house, even though it had a couple of small breaks in the caning on the back.

However, when I tried to get it into U-Haul, which was already packed full of other furniture I’d purchased, I heard that sound no one wants to hear – the sound of the caning catching on something and suddenly there weren’t a couple of small holes.  The photos show what happened.  

The chair comes with two small black and white pillows that match the seat cushion.

Dimensions:   Oops… once again, I’ve left the dimensions at the office, although you should be able to eyeball the measurements from the photos (as there’s plenty of background furniture to help visualize, right?).  It’s not a large chair.

Condition:  Structurally, except for the tears in the back, it’s in really good shape.  Visually, we have the tears in the caning issue.  If you have the talent and the time to repair that back, you’ll have a great little chair.

FIRM Price:  $10.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales tax of $.55 for a total of $10.55.

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Our Apologies, But Holds Over 24 Hours Must Now Provide a 50% Deposit: As we’ve gotten busier, I’m spending a great deal of time juggling multiple requests for the same item.  Most of the time, something comes up in the customer’s life that prevents him or her from getting here, but sometimes I never do here from them again. And in the meantime, other customers who are asking about the item end up moving on when the chair or art or garden statue or whatever isn’t immediately available.  So without a deposit, I’ll now have to implement a First Come, First Served policy. 

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  Shipping is $20.00.

For other options, please review our most recent blog on Possible Delivery Options in the Next Week (use the search feature), or our Shipping & Delivery page at

Buying Details:  We are very low tech.  Payment can be made via PayPal, good check (please allow 1 week to clear if not known to us) or cash.
