Best Black Friday Purchases? What was yours?
NOT my “Best Black Friday Purchase Ever”
The sectional above was NOT my “Best Black Friday Purchase Ever”. As you well know, sometimes what you think you want is not what you end up buying! Back in April of 2011, we found the above sectional at Furnitureland South in Jamestown, North Carolina. It was made by a very high end furniture company, King Hickory, and was $7500 (and that was Furnitureland South pricing!) Though we loved the piece and the quality, we just thought that the pricing was quite high for a cloth sectional. I tried every rationalization in the book, but nothing made sense enough to get us to purchase.
In truth, the sectional did have several shortcomings. The finish on the leather scratched easily. It was partially cloth, not all leather. The corner section wasn’t sitable and it had no matching ottoman available. So we walked away!
FOUND! Best Black Friday Purchase Ever
Fast forward seven months to Black Friday. Walt and I revisited our sectional search. Even though the King Hickory loomed in my heart, we knew we needed a more affordable sectional that better met our criteria. We went back to Furnitureland South, and even though I made a visit to my “expensive” King Hickory sectional, we went on a hunt to find a better (and more realistic) deal. Then we found this:
This sectional fit almost every criteria. The sectional was all leather and had a finish that wasn’t easily scratched. The corner section was sitable and it fit our finished room dimensions. But ughh…no ottoman. WAIT! I spotted one across the room in front of a chair that was also part of the grouping! Yes, I went there…
Poor Walt with his bad back had to drag the coffee table out of the way and get this heavy ottoman in place. We loved it. The Blac Friday price was right too, at less than half of what the other sectional cost. We paid on the spot and they shipped! Whoot. Looks great to this day in our great room. Definitely, my “Best Black Friday Purchase” ever ever!
