A little birdie told me today that I could save a bunch of dough on the sofa I’m planning to purchase from Crate and Barrel this June.
It’s $1500 at C&B, but only $450 on Craigslist. Here’s the catch: the white fabric has a few stains that did not come out with professional cleaning, and there is a small tear in the armrest of the sofa.
I think, for that kind of savings, I could make it work. I mean, if I bargain it down to $350, I save $1150. That’s a lot of savings. But is it worth it?
Here’s a peek at the brand-spankin’-new sofa from C&B:
I think I could easily throw a fun little blanket over the arm to cover it up.
And in reality, I’m the kind of girl who’s not embarassed to have a torn C&B sofa, if it means I got it at a huge discount. Heck, I’d probably be proud to announce to guests that that tear scored me a bargain. I’m silly like that.
But what do you think? Am I crazy to consider it?
