good deals

Well, yesterday's discussion was very interesting - thank you to the people who commented; I love a good debate/talk! :)
I am (contrary to popular belief) an insanely frugal bargain hunter. I have champagne taste and a decidedly beer budget, my friends. Of course everyone and their mother is at Highpoint Market this week except me - as I have to be here to man the store. But I am in phone and email contact with my vendors and since today is the last day of market, I have scored a bargain for myself!
This amazeballs parchment and cerused oak chest by Julian Chichester has always been a love of mine. The handles are this bronzey brass that is so cool, and the parchment fronts have a delicate fish scale pattern on them. It is super heavy and well made and sells retail for around $6k! I scored the floor sample from market for a cool grand and it is on its way to me now... Can't wait to dress it up!
Have you scored anything great lately?

I hate you for that great deal...only because I love that chest, and love that you found such a great deal on such a chest. Where's the love now? go look in the drawers of your new chest. i hate you. ;)

You a lucky dog!! You find da neatest bones hidden in da yard! Girl- I'm seriously jealous over this steal but so happy for you as you deserve the most beautiful things. Because, after all, beautiful people should be surrounded by beautiful things.
