Previous to tonight I haven't been a very good furniture shopper. Two spring breaks ago I was charged with buying sofas for S/O's and my condo in Honolulu. I ended up paying $1200 for sofas that were worth only about $250-$300. Needless to say, the experience made me feel less than great about myself. It was a big painful lesson learned. Recently, I've been looking for two pine armoires to hold my clothes and I turned to Craig's List. I found a pretty nice pine armoire for $150 that was a really good buy. Tonight, however, S/O and I picked up a second armoire that is of MUCH better quality. It's solid (and heavy) as hell and we got it for … $40!!! The owner just wanted to get rid of it. Apparently a good number of people had come to see it, but because it was so danged heavy there were no actual takers for it. Well … It now has a new home!!!
Yay for Craig's List and used furniture!!!
