I had the mother of all Craigslist scores this weekend and wanted to share!
So Sunday, I was at the gym, on the elliptical
and decided to do some Craigslisting to pass the time.
I click on the "Free" section and the very first thing that pops up is this listing.
Is that a tulip table?!
So I did what any normal person would do.
I jumped off that torture machine,
grabbed my coat and raced my sweaty self all the way to the house of the insane person
that clearly hates mid century furniture.
When I got there, the burgundy leather chairs and the bamboo bar
that were also in the listing were already gone.
But that table was just sitting there, looking at me.
The nice, not at all a murderer-man that lived at the house
even came outside and loaded that table and the other small one in to my SUV for me.
The top to the tulip table wouldn't fit by by one stupid inch but I figured the base was enough of a score that I wouldn't sweat it.
Here comes the too good to be true part.
While I really love this table,
I do not love that it is giant and heavy and metal (cast iron?)
and rolling around in the back of my car.
I cannot get the stupid thing out by myself.
It's heavy and awkward and even if I got it out of the back,
I wouldn't be able to carry it in to my house.
Reason number 752 that I wish I had a husband.
Or hot, strong neighbor.
So yesterday while I'm on the way to the grocery store,
I had to stop short and that damn table rolled it's way up to the front of the car
(the back seats are down)
and smashed in to me.
Which means I now have a large, weird shaped bruise across my shoulder and arm.
Ah, the life of a thrifter.
Expect to see the table listed soon in my Etsy shop,
along with some other non-injury causing items I picked up this weekend.
