This weekend while perusing the online classifieds over at Kijiji, I came across this beauty:
Needless to say, I promptly fell in love. It was perfect as is, but could you imagine how beautiful it would have been with a hardware update!!!!
I wanted it so bad. I should also mention that it was ridiculously cheap, and I even convinced Cory it would work for us. So I emailed the seller right away to ask the dimensions.
Then realized I didn`t care how big it was... I would make it work. I was so in love with this thing that a few minutes later, I couldn`t remember whether or not I had hit send on the email, so I emailed them again with another question.
When I hadn`t heard from them a little later, I checked to see if the ad was still up, and it was! I also noticed the seller`s phone number was listed (but not on the ad) so I called... no answer. I figured they were busy spending time with family. It WAS Easter afterall.....so I decided to wait patiently.
By patiently, I mean, I stalked the ad to see if it was there. I sat in the dining room imagining it acting as our beautiful new buffet. Or behind the sofa. Or even as a media cabinet in our (eventually) finished basement. I made sure the SUV was cleared out, so I could dash off and pick it up on a moment's notice.
Unfortunately, they never responded. No email, no returned call. And now??? Now, the ad is gone.
Without even a goodbye.... sigh
