Our son just bought a house and I am giving him my leather couch and love seat because we aren't using it right now, however he needs a bedroom suit and coffee table, some end tables..... They are leaving the kitchen table in the house, it's a cute wooden one that's in nice shape plus all appliances (he got really lucky on that one). He really doesn't want to spend a fortune on things and he knows that I can take apart and refinish just about anything he finds and make it his own HOWEVER I can't believe how expensive the furniture was priced at the Thrift stores today! The one thing he want's to buy NEW is a mattress so he would like to use most of his furniture cost's on that, I was just amazed! I wish it was yard sale season here, I could find him something I'm sure. We are watching Craigslist...kind of hoping we wouldn't need to go that route but sometimes there are things that you just can't pass up, or at least check into. We have used it to sell a few things plus we found our home on it!!
I guess next Saturday will be another day out and about.... It looks like they are going to move settlement up to the end of Feb rather than mid March since everything is ready to go. He has the essentials to start because he can take the bed he has now until he finds one, the poor kid has a twin, however there is a trundle that pops up to make it into a full size bed. He's going to put that in his guest room anyway, so it has to be moved anyway.
Thanks for letting me babble :)
