There are a lot of upsides to living in Canada - don't get me wrong, but when it comes to online shopping, it just isn't the same as the good ol' US of A.
So many shops just won't ship to Canada, and if they do, they usually won't ship the items I want (i.e. rugs from Overstock or furniture from Urban Outfitters). I've had my eye on a table at Urban Outfitters for what feels like AGES now because it is the perfect size and a great price. Of course, the only way I can get it is if I have it sent to a UPS/FEDEX station in Buffalo and go drive to pick it up. Super annoying.
Anyways, imagine my absolute ELATION when I popped in the local Urban Outfitters and found THE TABLE just sitting there waiting for me. It was clearly brand new, and looked SO perfect in my arms (because of course I grabbed it right away and didn't let go in case someone else noticed how perfect it was!).
I asked, and lucky me they had just received a shipment so I was able to pick up two! You might not think this is exciting, but I have been HUNTING through UO probably once a week on the way home from work for months. Canadian UOs don't get all the furniture, nor can they order anything in. It is a surprise what they receive and today was my lucky day!!
I was in a bit of a rush, so yes the tag is still on and I haven't figured out the rest of the room.
Another piece of good news - they were only 8 dollars more than they are listed for in the US!
Anyways - that's all for today - no garage updates (finally). Should have some painting updates shortly though :-)
ETA: As excited as I was, don't ask about the streetcar ride home with two heavy metal tables in my arms where NOT ONE person offered me a seat, and one actually STOLE a seat from under my almost-sitting tush.
I came home ranting about hating people (especially the seat stealer), but of course was overcome with excitement once I started putting the tables together!
