When we first starting putting Mosaic together, I was all excited to exercise my basic scrounging skills and start accumulating stuff to fill out all our new spaces.

Alas, Mosaic took a LOT longer than expected to come to fruition, but now we can finally start getting all the bits we’ll need. Since we have a great room that can seat 60 or so folks for meals, we needed a lot of chairs.

Through the magic of the Harvard Recycling Program, yesterday morning we picked up 84 very sturdy ex-restaurant (or hotel, we’re not sure) chairs. They’re in great shape, if a bit orange, and very sturdy.

We have chairs!

No way they all fit into a mini van. How many trips did that take? Also, you saved huge amounts of money, those things are expensive, but will last for ever

Oh definately not in the minivan – note there’s a trailer in the picture full of chairs 🙂
Yeah, we know this saved us a ton. The next big challenge is to find banquet tables that aren’t destroyed. We have chairs, dishes, silver, serving stuff, etc – but no tables yet 😦

chairs I have found online.
