Furniture Shopping

We went furniture shopping yesterday, went to the Mall which we both hate, haven't been in one in years.  Thought we'd give a look at Sears.  Well it turns out that places like Sears, Penneys and Macys only carry furniture in catalogues and online, not in their stores.  So we headed off to Rooms to Go to look at the tv console pictured on the left.  Well, it was way bigger than we expected and quite frankly didn't look as good in person as it did online, so we looked at more consoles and found one called the Santa Cruz.  That's the one pictured on the right.  In person it actually looked better than its picture, so we decided to buy it.  But the salesman who'd jumped on us like a vulture on fresh kill as we'd entered the store  told us it was out of stock and wouldn't be available until December 15.  I asked him if they would sell the floor model but he said no because it was active stock.  So we decided to move on to another furniture store.
We hit Haverty's next.  They're a bit more expensive than Rooms to Go but have beautiful furniture.  The store in Savannah looks small from the outside but is huge, including a whole back room (like a whole other store) of scratch and dent items.  We were overwhelmed by the choices but surprised ourselves by falling in love with not a tv console but a sofa table.  Mac found it and showed it to me and I knew at first glance it was the one.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  It has inlayed wood on the top and bottom shelf and just looks rich. They had none in stock but were more than glad to sell me the floor model even though it was active stock.  Smart people.  It was on sale and we bought it, had the Miata so we couldn't take it home with us but we'll be going to pick it up onSaturday.  It should look great upstairs.

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
