The one that got away…again…
For those of you that have been reading this blog for awhile you know I have a horrible problem of second guessing items at thrift stores, obsessing about them, sleeping on it, deciding I really want it and returning the next day to only see an empty space where my dream item use to live.
Well I finally decided I need to stick to my guns and trust my instincts. I realized if I didn’t end up using it a client could eventually or I could just sell it.
Yesterday while sourcing items for clients at my favorite thrift store I spotted this beauty:
Swoon a large, velvet, tufted, ORANGE ottoman! Be still my heart it was meant to go in my living room. I made a beeline towards it ready to haul it over to the register.
Yeah well it looks like someone else beat me to the punch. As I walked over I saw the big red sold tag on it. A mover from the shop told me it had literally been bought 3 minutes ago!!!!!!!
So sad! I went and sat on it for a while just to pretend what it be like to have it in my house and secretly wished that the new owner would come back, see me sitting on it and decide that it was meant to be mine and sell it to me.
Didn’t happen. I checked out the whole thing in the hopes of finding a rip or stain that would make me feel better that it got away from me. Nothing only a tag from Kravet and a $68 price tag!!!!!!!!!
Seriously considering getting a part time job at the shop so I can get first dibs on everything.
