I love A Good Bargain

I was out and about and ran into this bargain. I should tell you that I don't have one piece of furniture that matches. Well, not that my pieces don't match, but I have eclectic taste. I really don't like sets.

This is brand new but as you can see has a few minor scratches. The flash really picks them up. Without the light that bright you really can't tell. I don't know why it was only $5. I'm guessing it was part of a set that no one wanted and was a one off. It was on the street in front of the store and I said WTH, for $5 if I decide I don't want it/can't use it/fill in the blank, no big deal.

It's sitting next to my bed and the piece of shit that was there before is now on the other side of the bed, for wishful thinking that I'll have a "partner" soon who will need it to place his watch on at night. [sigh]

I'm rather pleased with my purchase. It has two nice size drawers where I can put alot away from the kitties. I can store my work that I do at home in one of them and that just tickles me pink. WOOT!

Looks like a great bargain, and I can't see any scratches.

We don't have any matching furniture either, but more for economical reasons than by choice.

I love it.. that is the way I shop.. except for the red cedar furniture we made ourselves.. I have nothing that matches.. I even make sure my dishes, cups and glasses.. do not match.. I like it that way..

(my silverware has to match.. because there is only one brand I like)
