I consider myself a tough ol’bird – move furniture for a living, kill bugs, mow the lawn – but I’ve got to admit this snow storm just about did me in! One long driveway + 20 inches of drifting snow + no snow blower = sore muscles and fatigue even two days later! Oh my!
Wednesday morning looking out my front door while it was still snowing.
That’s a lot of snow!
So, what’s your blizzard ‘11 story? Like me are you still feeling the effects of shoveling out? Did you enjoy the middle of the week “snow day”? Did you have to scramble to make arrangements due to the storm? What did you hurry out and purchase either Monday or Tuesday when you realized we really were going to get hit with a ton of snow? In addition to milk and diet coke (which everyone should always have on hand – though not beverages you’d drink together), on Monday I made a quick trip to the library so I’d have a stack of books on hand to read!
The weather certainly impacted donation pickups this week, though the guys did have a long and full day on Tuesday! So – thankfully – the store is actually brimming over with inventory. Let’s take a look!
E.J. Victor sleeper sofa in a great shade of brown for $85
fabulous retro brown pleather sofa for $175; matching recliner for $135
great lines to this Max Home yellow sofa but with most of the seat cushions ripping at the seams it would have to be re-covered, so the price is only $35
gorgeous antique mahogany desk for $195
incredible black leather? pleather? Schweiger sleeper sofa for $345
love seat – both sides recline – fabric ripped along seat cushions – for $20; matching sofa (no rips but needs to be cleaned) for $55
this two-in-one sleeper sofa is either all blue velour, or, with the flip of the back cushions a floral look and in excellent condition for $165
I love the legs on this table which is priced $85
another great sofa – though also needs to be cleaned – for $95
this 8’ long sofa is a great caramel color and priced $65
this small sofa/love seat opens to a full-size bed and is priced $125
this is a gorgeous Room and Board? Crate and Barrel? (we couldn’t find any label) sofa in a great rusty/orangey color and in perfect condition EXCEPT this rip right along the middle seam on the seat cushion (what’s with all the rips this week?) so is priced only $125!
there are TWO of these matching rusty/brown sofas and they’re not bad – just have some pet hair on ‘em – so are priced $35 each
this is a great three piece sectional with an ottoman – slip-covered in a sort of marbley gray fabric (yet the non-cushion sections are a solid gray) and priced $225
Bauhaus sofa for $125
lovely love seat for $95
beautiful Keller entertainment center for $245
And that is most of the “new” stuff received for donation this week, though we still have plenty of:
mattresses – these are new-to-us this week, just haven’t stacked ‘em with the rest of our inventory yet; and
dining room tables and chairs (though very few “sets”); and
office furniture including desk chairs!
So, hopefully you’re all dug out and can head to the store either today (Friday) from 1 to 8 or tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4! Bring cash, VISA, or MasterCard and some Tylenol in case I need more for my sore muscles! *smile*
Take care, dear reader!
