Ok, so here's the skinny: I nabbed this excellent telephone table from the store...well, let's not name names, let's just say it rhymes with "fear none". The table originally retailed for $149.98 USD but it was marked 75% off, taking the price down to a mere $37.49 USD. The reason? According to the sales tag it was "Damage: Front Drawer". I couldn't see any damage however, and puzzled, asked the salesgirl what the problem was. She pointed out that it was missing the bottom drawer altogether --which due to the style of the table was a detriment one might totally overlook, as I had:
An easy fix as well...am thinking about having a piece of wood cut to the appropriate dimensions and nestle it in there to make a little shelf. Much nicer than a second drawer I think!
|The very fixable, very nothing scratches--HAH!|
Of course, a seasoned haggler would probably ask for 10% off, knowing that won't fly, and than settle for 5% but I sensed that would be pushing it and kibosh my chances. All and all, not bad for my first time out.
