Outer Bank Chairs

I’ve never experienced such a concentration of Big Things in an area.  The area from Nags Head to Kitty Hawk is for some reason just loaded with Big Chairs.  I would like to meet the salesperson that was able to sell so many chairs in such a small area.  This collage is only 6 of the 10 chairs that I found.  For all I know there were more that I didn’t find.

Rhoads Garden Chair

We’ve been past Rhoads Garden a number of times and didn’t stop to grab this Big Chair.  Nice chair and I understand Rhoads Garden is a very good garden center.  If you are in southeast Pennsylvania stop in.  They’re at 570 DeKalb Pike in North Wales.

McClure’s Apple Haus Chair

We planned to visit McClure’s Apple Haus and get an image of their Big Apple reported by my Bird Dog Erica. We spotted this Big Chair with a Michigan mitten forming the back.  After getting this image and the apple we went inside to get some fresh cider and newly baked cinnamon donuts.  Only in Fall!

Nate’s Chair

Well, here is my first shared Big Thing photo.  And how best to share it than with the first Grand Bird Dogger.  Nate posed with this chair a while ago and when I was in South Jersey it was only natural that we would share this image capture.  I think he may have a future with Big Things.

Family Leisure Chair

Deb and I and our friend Jerry were downtown to see the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis.  Jerry is an accomplished photographer and we wanted to get his comments on Ansel Adams, who has long been a favorite of mine.  On the way to dropping Jerry off at his house we were passing by Family Leisure and wanted to look a new fire pit.  Well, lo and behold, here was this Big Chair.

Andy T’s Big Chair

When we were up in Michigan to see my Uncle Ed we stopped at Andy T’s Farm Market as we always do.  It’s always a treat to stop in for one reason or another.  When we stopped this time we spotted this Big Chair.

LA Huge Chair

My West Coast Bureau Chief alerted the Home Office to this Big (really huge) Chair near downtown LA.  And she wasn’t kidding, this is the biggest chair I’ve seen.  Look carefully, it’s big enough for a car to drive through.  Maybe it’s made from Sequoia wood.

Sullivan’s Chair

Here is another Big Item taken in front of Sullivan Hardware, on Keystone Avenue in Indianapolis. I have many shots taken at this location. See the Big Green Egg inflatable just a couple shots below this. This big Adirondack Chair showed up a few days ago and we stopped by to grab this shot before it disappeared. Thanks again, Sullivan’s and keep the Big Things coming.

Hagerstown Rocker

This Big Rocker is not the biggest I have but it does fit the bill to be included on the site. It’s located in Hagerstown, Maryland. We stopped to grab this image and the next after visiting Harper’s Ferry on our Spring Break trip to Philadelphia. In Harper’s Ferry we stayed at The Angler Bed and Breakfast, something we rately do, and after a wonderful breakfast we started the day getting some Big Things.

Bethany Beach Chair

After moving into our condo in Ocean City, Maryland and getting some beach time, we decided to have lunch at Harpoon Hannah’s in Fenwick Island, Delaware. We had a couple terrific recommendations about this place and wanted to eat there. Before lunch we drove even farther north to get a feel for Bethany Beach and Rehoboth, Delaware. We’d passed through Rehoboth a few years ago when we took the Lewes-Cape May ferry. I liked both Rehoboth and thought Bethany Beach was a place that we might stay in the future. More likely we’ll be at the New Jersey shore in Avalon or Stone Harbor. Anyway, back to the Big Picture, which was this set of Big Chairs outside of Perfect Furnishings in Bethany Beach. Nice chairs. Good food on the deck at Harpoon Hannah’s, crab, crab, crab. Love it!

Rist Benson Reservoir Chari

An unexpected treat was finding this large Adirondack Chair on our way to Estes Park, Colorado, a gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. It is on Eisenhower Blvd. (US-34) in Loveland, Colorado. In the background you can see a little of the Rist Benson Reservoir. Kind of ironic to have an “Adirondack” chair in the Rocky Mountains, don’t you think? Maybe a “Rocking” chair would be more appropriate.

Town & Country Furniture

I like to “find” Big Things. Usually I have researched and charted my targets. However this chair was an unexpected treat. We were cutting cross country in Ohio, north of Dayton, just west of I-75 and spotted this chair in Piqua. It’s out front of Town & Country Furniture on W. Water Street, corner or S. Wayne. If you are so inclined Xtreme Tattoos is right across the street. I was thinking of a nice dragon but was overruled.

St. Louis Chairs

On the same trip to St Louis for Thanksgiving we were in Kirkwood to hang out and do a little shopping when eagle-eyed Deb spotted this sculpture of chairs. Luckily she had her camera handy and we were able to capture this image.

Dalai Lama Chair

Deb and I were on our way to see the Dalai Lama — I needed to get my karma adjusted. We made a small side trip to get this chair, which I’ve been after for a while. It’s in the Guinness Book and can be found on US-31 outside Long’s Furniture in Amnity. The Dalai Lama was in Bloomington at Indiana University and this chair, while not on the way was close enough. By the way, we stopped for breakfast at Don and Dona’s restaurant in downtown Franklin. Highly recommended! Friendly folks and great food.

Lowell, AR Chair

Driving into Lowell Arkansas on the way to the canning factory my newest Bird Dog (Mike B) spotted this chair at a spot that I’d driven past many times in the past. He shouted “Hey, there’s a BIG CHAIR.” I immediately turned into a service station to get around to get this chair.

Kokomo Rocking Chair

Lot’s of folks told me about this chair and it took some time to go and get it. On US-31, north of Kokomo is Grissom Air Force base. And just north of the base sits this Big Rocking Chair out in a field. If you go west on the road that forms the intersection you will find a farm that buys Black Walnuts. I stopped and chatted with the folks there, quite interesting. (I lost my notes or I would tell you the name of the farm.)

Surfside Casual Chairs

I noticed these chairs outside a branch of Surfside Casual in Somers Point, NJ last summer. Never made it back until this Spring. I got ’em and I’m glad. They bear an amazing similiarity to the two chairs we found earlier on the way to Long Beach Island.

Hey Romeo, here’s to my Italian Bird Dog. He gave me info on these chairs. I just never made it to LBI. We usually hit the shore south of Atlantic City. These were both in front of Surfside Casual Furniture on Rt. 72 just east of US-9. Could be easy to miss if you weren’t looking for them.
