Because Of The Lousy Weather Over The Weekend I Got Lucky And Was Afforded The Opportunity To Snatch This Industrial Style Factory Cart Coffee Table Today. But Was It That Easy...Of Course Not. Status: Still...It's Available.
This lovely...wait, that's not quite the right word, this is far too masculine for a word like "lovely". This...gnarly(?) factory cart popped up on craigslist over the weekend and for some reason I didn't bite. Maybe the seller lowered the price or something but when I spotted it again on Monday, I just had to have it. She told me she had a couple buyers lined up over the weekend but they all bailed due to the bad weather. Lucky me!
I shot an email early in the day on Monday but never heard back from the seller. I had been trying to
score a sweet Lane Perception china cabinet since Sunday and hadn't heard back from that seller
either so I got a little nervous wondering if maybe my e-mails were going to spam files. I shot the
seller of the cart another e-mail later Monday evening and finally got a reply. She was all for me
coming by before noon so we made arrangements to meet at 11:30. I set an alarm since I'm now
working a later shift for 10am. I figured that was plenty of sleep...but the world thought otherwise.
The seller texted me at 7:35am to tell me another buyer wanted to meet at 11 so I just "manned up"
and told her I could just come by then.
Ugh. But 35 minutes later I was carefully tossing this in the back of Frank while dancing on a slick
sheet of ice. And since I was already up I figured I'd just go ahead and drop it off in the booth out at
Creve Coeur! Alas, the Creve Coeur Antique Mall doesn't open until 10am so I had a little while to
kill. Good thing there's a Goodwill just up the street. I even got lucky and found about a half dozen
smalls for the booth. Unfortunately I was too tired to remember to photograph them, but at least I did
get some good pics of the Factory Cart coffee table! Oh, and I did manage to snatch a quick hour and
a half nap before heading into work...in case you was worried 'bout me!
