And every visit is different from the last, as special holiday chairs come and go, people bring in new chairs, and everything is rearranged by visitors.
The chairwomen of this Texas roadside attraction are Judy Smith and Anne Pearson, also known as the “chairy fairies.” These next door neighbors have been friends for over 40 years. The lot between their homes was always empty, but used. What started with just one chair lead to more and more until the hundreds packed in that you’ll find today. The chairs come from garage sales, thrift stores, and dumpsters. Some even are donated by visitors.
This roadside attraction will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. Which seat that is, well, you just have to pick one! But don’t worry there are plenty to choose from.
