So here's how the conversation went (roughly):
L: I saw a dresser with a mirror that's on the small side but I think it could work in our bedroom.
M: Will it fit at least some stuff, or is it those tiny "olden days" drawers?
L: No, manly-clothing-size drawers but only two of them, with two small drawers up top. Here's the picture.
M: Does that price tag say $125?
M: And it has a mirror? That's, like, not broken?
M: And you left it there? (Note: There was a slight tinge of disbelief in his voice at this point...I really don't leave anything behind that even resembles a good deal. And this more than resembles. It is a good deal. I was just trying to keep him involved in the process.)
I left a message at Country-by-the-Sea Tea Room in Avon-by-the-Sea (another quaint New Jersey beach town. Doesn't Avon-by-the-Sea just sound lovely?) and they called back to say the dresser will be sitting by the front door waiting for me Friday. I wish they had a web site. It's a little antique store/gift shop/tea room Co-Op that's run by all the women who sell their wares there. The fabulous little tea room is a totally fun ladies-who-lunch spot, with all sorts of yummy treats (and if you like the chair you're sitting in, you can probably buy it out from under you). I'll take pictures on Friday (better than the blurry one above. Yikes!)...It's post worthy.
