Victorious


I am feeling victorious! Why? Because over the weekend I was browsing Craig's List and came across an ad that had photos loaded in photobucket. So as I browsed for something I might need I saw a sliver of what looked like the Potterybarn Photo Carousel and wondered if that too was for sale? I sent my sis a text as she lived not even a block away from where the sale was at and she didn't call me back. I live about an hour away from where the sale was going on and so I wasn't able to get away at the time to go check it out so I just knew it was going to be bought out from under me! Well, Monday came along and I emailed the seller and no response and so a girlfriend and I drove over during our lunch hour as it was not far from the office. Still no answer, it was a salon that was closing and no one was there! Off to lunch we went and just as we were leaving I saw an email hit my blackberry from the seller! She still had it and so I got it for.............................JUST $40! Your read right! $40, this is no longer sold at Pottery Barn and when you could buy it we believe it sold for over $100 (The 5ft one shown in the photo is the one I got). I was so excited to get it and it's going in my craft room to hold cards and photos. I will post a photo of it once I have it set up in my craft room. Ciao for now!
