I recently purchased these chairs from a Craig’s list posting.Â They are in excellent condition, and I thought I would “redoux” one of them to go in my teen’s room, where we are going with a Pottery Barnish contemporary look.Â Â
The chairs have a low, postmodern look that with a new fabric, and a little clean up on the wood, they will be fantastic.Â They are totally solid and in excellent condition.
Here comes the kicker.Â The chairs were posted for $10 each.Â Â I arrived at sellers home, eager to pick up my $20 bargain.Â I hand the woman the money, she pause, and says, “well”, (meanwhile, I am thinking, “aughhhhhh, I screwed up the price and got these confused with something else, she is probably going to tell me she was asking $100 for each chair”!!!)Â Then she says, “I actually posted it wrong, I should have said $5 per chair, here let me give you a $10 back.”Â Â
WHEN, IF EVER DOES THIS HAPPEN IN THE WORLD OF SELLER AND BARGAIN HUNTER.Â
Of course, adrenaline filled, greedy bargain hunter that I am quickly starts scanning her front room to see if there is anything else she wants to sell me for cheap.Â Â
Oh well, I shouldn’t expect a miracle to strike twice!Â
What kinds of funny bargain hunting experiences have you had?Â I want to hear them all!
