He showed me a simple, Mission-style wooden end table that was very similar to one that I had seen at Target for $60:
I asked how much and he said "The full retail price is $535, but I'm selling it at a discount for $295. " I said no thank you, and went back home.
I can't believe that furniture off a truck could cost so much! These North Carolina guys have been coming up to Brooklyn for years now. Someone must be buying from them. But not me. If I'm going to buy furniture off of the back of a truck, it better be a helluva lot cheaper than that.
Thank you for listening to my tale. You may now proceed to make fun of me, if you so choose.
