A Girl Walks Into a Thrift Store....
I totally believe in fate! Although I haven't been posting too terribly much lately based on time constraints (mostly though not to bore you all w/ my dribble), I know that many of you know that I've been wanting/talking/saving for a white Ektorp Sofa for a few yrs.
My family has been buying $25 IKEA gift cards for me at Mother's Day etc... to help buy it. Well, last night I got off work early and knowing that DD needed some long pants, I stopped in at a local thrift shop 20 minutes before closing. First of all Christmas music was playing so I new it was going to be a good night even if I didn't find anything for her (I'm one of those antsy Christmas Types). Found a pair of pants & a kilt for her and when I went to pay for it I saw an Ektorp Sectional for $275! It was in like new condition. They agreed to hold it for me and this morning I went back and bought it w/ a $25 coupon & tonight w/ all of my gift cards we're hitting IKEA because now I have enough gift cards for another white slipcover (I insist on 2) & some other items from IKEA that I've had on my list after the sofa!
Pics to follow soon!
