The best buy for antique banquet chairs in Charleston SC today - by far - is at Relics Antique Mall in Red Top, on Hwy 17 South near Bees Ferry Rd. They have ten chairs that match in the bamboo style with an antique gold finish. They are all in good condition.
The only thing they need is a slip covering for the plastic covered 1970’s or so seat pads to make them perfect. That is not hard to do. You can choose your own material from any of the fabric shops like Hancock Fabrics.
They are priced at the ridiculously low $ 40.00 a chair. This is unheard of. They are perfect for the tables that use reclaimed lumber, farm tables or any table with white linen table cloths, etc… You cannot go wrong with chairs like this.
And, if you have an arm chair and another chair that matches, you can seat twelve people – the maximum number for a formal table. They are truly classic chairs that are strong and practical. They have a great patina but it would be easy to change the color. Go to Relics Antique Mall to see for yourself and ask for Victoria.
