This past weekend, Hubby and I took our best pals to the semi-annual Mazer Furniture Tent Sale. If in the Ham and need household crap, you must go. Best prices on stuff you really don’t need, but suddenly cannot live without. Why? Because it’s on clearance, silly!
We four musketeers go exploring for some fun finds and are maliciously attacked by a commissioned sales person. Her name is Tracy (and you have to say it like Seinfeld says Newman – with total disdain). Trrraaacyyy.
At first, we smile and say something non-committal like, “We’re just looking”. (Never look them in the eyes!)
She spies on us from behind a row of scratch and dent king-sized headboards and as we pick up a lamp she proclaims, “Those lamps are only $5”.
Attempting to divide and conquer, the musketeers split up in a strategic move to flank from four corners and ultimately defeat the enemy.
Two warriors dash down an aisle of discontinued armoires and duck behind an assortment of mismatched chairs. The other two quietly find camouflage in the section of outdoor furniture. Perhaps they have thrown her off their trail? The battle worn foursome reassemble near the check out desk.
Momentarily escaping the fatigue of battle, the group flops down on what appears to be the most comfortable living room suite ever made. The chair and matching ottoman are perfect for lounging. The loveseat and couch do not have detached cushions, (as all have come to hate from experience). The fabric is soft, the color is great and the design detail – not too loud, but not too lame….in a word… this furniture is PERFECTION!
Now where’s a salesperson when you need one?
