Great Deals from the Back of a Truck!

So, we were enjoying a Memorial Day lunch on the back deck with some friends who were passing through town when the doorbell rang. At the door was a man with a sweet Southern drawl who said that they had two trucks out front full of furniture from their North Carolina warehouse that they were selling at cost.

Curious, and amused, we decided to go take a look.

Inside, the two trucks were loaded with furniture - sofas, loveseats, recliners, grandfather clocks, dining room sets and bedroom sets. It was quite amazing.

We weren't really in the market for any new furniture, but happened across a bedroom set that looked nice. We have been talking about getting a king bed (currently have queen), but weren't actively looking for one.....but, we inquired about the price anyway.

Apparently the price was right - because we are now proud owners of a new king-sized bed and all the matching furniture! Really - it was quite the steal and too good to pass up. We said yes, and they came in right away - moved our old stuff to the garage and set up the new stuff.

We didn't (still don't) have a king-sized mattress, so right now our queen mattress is sitting on the king bed. Our new mattress will be delivered next Monday.

I can honestly say that I never imagined buying furniture from the back of truck is how I would ever spend Memorial Day!
