Somebody Beat The Mr. To It! Somebody Should Be VERY Happy! Just Not Me. Status: Well Ain't That Just A Kick In The Pants.
I spotted this set of Broyhill Brasilia from behind and as I came around the corner and recognized the nightstand a surge of adrenaline rushed though my veins! Then I spotted the "Sold" tags...one after another. Dang.
Oh, I know....I don't need no more Brasilia. I've got plenty in my personal "collection" and I
seem to find the stuff like pennies laying on the sidewalk. I wouldn't even have thought it a big
deal if the set hadn't revealed itself (or...been revealed...I guess?) in the way that it did. If I had
just seen the Sold tags first. Or if I just GOTTEN there first!!! ::sigh:: I ain't cryin'...I just got
somthin' in my eye.
"I'm Sold"....."I'm Sold"....."sorry loser, I'm Sold!!!" sorry, still a little bitter. It's not so bad. All
the pieces have little stick on circles to keep glass on their tops. Not such a bad thing...and
otherwise the nightstand - oh those lovely, hard to find nightstands - the nightstand is in fine shape.
But this chest of drawers has all sorts of scrapes on it top. A top that also has the little clear vinyl
stick on circles for a glass top. So how did the scrapes get there? Oh well, thrifters can't be
choosers. What am I talking about...like I had any choice....ahem...trying not to be bitter...We
thrifters have to take what we are offered, that's all I'm sayin'.
The six drawer chest of drawers fared better but still had the ubiquitous White Paint spatters on it.
None of this is any big deal to me...I'm just trying to make myself feel better! "Sure, I missed out
on a killer bedroom set of Brasilia, but look how ganked up it was", yeah...it ain't working on me
either. Anyway, I might have missed out on the Brasilia set (It kills me how cheap this probably
was, too...ask Nick how cheap the Salvation army in St. Charles prices Brasilia!) but I did manage
to score something REALLY cool at the Goodwill just down the street. Stay tuned for that!
