Bargain Hunter Blues
One of the most frustrating things about my commitment to bargain hunting for my projects is the fact that I encounter limited quantities and discontinued items all the time. Sure, I tell you about my awesome scores and highlights. But truth is, since I shop in the clearance and sale sections allot, I tend to choose items that are on the verge of being eliminated… So…. Sometimes I win and I get a great piece for a client at a great price (happy dance followed by glowing blog post) …and sometimes I lose … like this week, a hat trick of discontinued items for the basement project. Hmmpf. I’m really pissed about that under the TV piece…Like I might not get over it for a long time…Help me recover with your tales of tough retail love.
Don’t worry about me, I’ll recover. The worst thing is that I go back to the drawing board, and that’s not so bad at all. I’m truly to committed to finding beautiful quality pieces for less, and I won’t stop till we’re both happy!
