Last Evening The Girlfriend And I Presented Our Annual Nightmare Before Christmas Party And My Good Friend Illuminate (Who We Haven't Seen In A While) Came To Hang With Us. Then Today She Texted Me Some Ridiculous Pics From A Local Goodwill. Status: Had To Share!
Yes, you are reading that tag right. ONE THOUSAND AND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. Would you pay $1,500 for ANYTHING from a goodwill? And that is for just ONE piece of a three piece set! ::Sigh:: This is what happens when someone gets a little bit of a lot of information.
Yeah, somebody at this particular Goodwill found some listings on line (Illuminate says they are from
eBay) and printed them out for comparisons. And yeah, that's $500 for the Drexel Declaration
headboard. Looks like they are gonna just end up storing this here on the floor a couple weeks until it
goes off to the Goodwill online auction.
So that's $1,500 for the dresser and $500 for the headboard...and unfortunately I can't see what they
are asking for the chest of drawers. It's a shame they didn't take a look at 1stDibs! They coulda put
even HIGHER prices on those tags. I've heard of thrift stores in other areas trying to pull this silliness,
but this is the first time I've witnessed it around here. This is the same Goodwill that I picked up a
nice Johnson Carper Fashion Trend dresser a couple years ago for cheap.
And just check this all out. The chest of drawers is missing it's legs. The dresser has BAD water
rings on the top. ALL the handles are wrong (Ooops, Bopfish schooled me that these are in fact,
correct!). There appears to be some missing veneer on one of the drawers on the chest. This set is a
mess...and they think that $2,000 PLUS is an appropriate asking price?!?! I'm guessing that someone
has been nipping on the holiday eggnog!
