Love me a good bargain...

The past couple of years we have been very busy updating the inside of the house.  All of the new furniture came from Broyhill and there were a few pieces that we wanted, yet cost was an issue...

A month or so ago Hubby decided that he wanted to get an end table so off we went to the local Broyhill store.  It was closed and every time we drove by it was closed.  There was no signs and the store was full of furniture, curious?  This past Sunday we happened to drive by and there were huge signs saying the store was closing and no offer would be refused... but, they were closed?

Monday night we trekked over there yet again and discovered they were open, woo hoo!  Apparently the stores in our area are a franchise and they have filed bankruptcy so to our good fortune, everything in the store was on sale.  MAJOR sale!  We scored both coffee table and end table to complete our living room for HALF of the original price of just the coffee table!  See:

And the matching end table:

053

We also were given a great price on the dining room table that we have been coveting.  BUT, there's always a but, since they are selling all of the floor stuff only, the table only has four chairs.  Gotta have more than four chairs.  The hutch that goes with the dining room table also is a little bit out of the price range that I'm willing to cough up and I want a complete set not just one of the pieces.  Would be too hard to match the wood, etc...  So I am thinking about trekking over to the other store in another city to see if they have more chairs and trying to cut a better deal.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

I would say get the table and get other chairs - it's the new thing to not have a matchy matchy everything- unless oyu insist- you can always get the 4 chairs and use 2 different for end chairs.
