Costly mistake - Kohler stages 45"

Laura_PAJanuary 4, 2013

Well, I panicked when my stages 45" was backordered, backordered and didn't look like it would ship "in time" - I found another seller that had delivery time that I could schedule and it was in my timeframe so I jumped on it. Went to cancel the other order the next day only to find out it had shipped.

So now I have TWO stages 45" sinks. Sigh. The restock fee + return ship fee was too much so I am going to try to sell on eBay for my cost. Anybody in eastern PA/NJ looking for a Kohler Stages sink :)? Think I will have any luck? I should have just been patient as the whole schedule got skewed anyway and it wouldn't have mattered. lesson #123.

That stinks. Try EBay, local pickup only.

And CL in Balt and phila.

Typing On phone, sorry so brief.

Try Craigslist. I sold a sink that I bought at an auction before I selected a countertop that didn't go with it.

LOL!

I have TWO Kohler, 'Hawthorne' undermount farm sinks in a gorgeous red color. Rousselain or something.

I was wondering the same thing. But given the fact they weight 180 lbs each, I'd hesitated. Mine is gracing my barn in its box.

Good luck.

Deinitely craigslist and ebay local pick up.

I don't know that you'll get back what you paid though. Sorry that sucks!

I am currently looking for the best price for one. I found one a month ago for a great price. Now it is $300.00 more. Where did you get yours? Peke

Yeah, too bad you are not closer! I do LOVE the sink. I had to clean the old refrigerator to give to my sis, and it was amazing being able to fit the shelves and bins in the sink to wash. Soooo much easier than it was in my small sink. I'm very happy with it.

I had a lead on selling it, but they decided they do not have the room for 45" sink. My contractor took pictures in case he talks to someone redoing the kitchen. As soon as things settle down I will try Craig's list or ebay. I'm also going to tell my kitchen designer/cabinet supplier when he comes for the punch list. If I can sell it for $900-950 I will be very happy.

One of mine came from Amazon.

Good for you!

I was silly and didn't order it when I should have and now it is a lot more expensive. Urghh

That is why I am looking if I can find a deal. :-)

Good luck!
