attention, kmart shoppers!
Since we will be moving soon, Baron & I have been searching for a couple of new items for our house. One of those items is a breakfast room table & chairs. We have a dining room table & chairs already, but if we don't get something for the breakfast room, well, it would just be a room. Anyway, so I've been trying to find something that's relatively inexpensive but still attractive. Apparently I am a cheapskate, because I have been looking all over & have not been able to find anything in the $300 - $350 range that isn't old & nasty. Until a couple of weeks ago. One Saturday morning, Baron & I decided to go yard-saling. We didn't expect to find our treasure in the yard sales, but I needed to ease my mind so I could know I at least tried. Anyway, we concluded the yard sale trip with a desk lamp for $4. When we were finished, we went to Willie's World Flea Market. (For you locals, this used to be Fantasy Land Flea Market, next to Winner's Bingo on Atlanta Highway.) I wanted to show Baron some dinette sets I had seen there a couple of months ago. Well, when we found them, they didn't have prices on them so we asked the nice little Asian lady working there. What did she just say? $320?? Seriously? The one we were looking at was a glass top table with an iron base and 4 chairs with padded seats. What a steal! This stuff is brand new, in excellent condition, and it's in our budget. So, fellow shoppers, if you are looking for dining room furniture, breakfast room furniture, coffee tables, bar stools, end tables, etc...I highly recommend Willie's World. Oh yeah...and they do have bar stools to match the table & chairs we picked out. Sweet.
