    I shop alot of second hand stores for furniture. I see no need too buy new when you can save money buying used.

    Go around and look for old people with couches in thier garage.

    Cat pee really brings the price down.

    I've bought two sofas, one was free and very smelly and one was $30 and not so smelly. The smelly one I put a whole bottle of Febreeze pn and went to bed, the other I just threw in the living room. The $30 had a matching $20 love seat. Looooovvvveee, exciting and new........ Anyway, both were hidabeds and a nice 70's floral pattern. Goes good with the orange flower carpet and wood paneling.

    Ya we looked at the micro fiber stuff, Its pretty cool, my buddy has a couch made of it.

    We also found a really cool dining table, but one of the chairs is backordered for 2-4 weeks so we are going to look on-line for something

    still managed to spend 250 dollars today though:eek:

    Hold that order there little MR. Buddy of mine bought a new 7 bath home in el dorado hills, and just offered up his old couch to me for free.I dont have any room for it however, with my secong child on the way my office is going BYE BYE. Its nice, and i think its a set.Couch and loveseat. All for the cost of nothing. So let me know before it goes out the window. Compliments of the plumbing overlords. :grin: Let me know, its nice stuff. Now that they have there custom 7 bath house, and changiong there design,,they no longer need the couch, so its going. I think theres an old mahogany table there too. I dont know. :whistle:

    In addition, to the conclution of the irritaed situation,:haha: it seems you only call when you need something.Thats ok, the crap is waiting for you and ill puit it on hold for your asses, because im just that way, you just lucked out on the timing. :grin: JACOB AND FAMILY:usaflag: :saweet: :saweet: :saweet:

    BOO!! Carbon fiber is for automobiles. :grin: :haha: Sounds like a double dose of bad taste is going around:haha: . Nothing beats antique mahogany, im a funiture freak!!! I bought my table for 2grand, and its like 100 yrs old, and all done up and restored. Trust me, when you buy old stuff its SOLID, not this particle board crap floating around. Go old school, very tough, and strong stuff. :grin: Thats just what i like. Sometimes if you wait you can find stuff on the cheap too. But then again, my living room looks like a law office lol. :haha:
