Default art van. argh.

I first went to ikea because of all the hype, and quickly discovered that ikea is the harbor freight of furniture.

then I went to art van, and now I remember why I said I would never go there again.

I guess I'll buy end tables and the coffee table from amazon. .

The wife and I try to avoid the salesman for as along as possible at Art Van. We see them coming and keep turning the other way.
All the while humming the Jaws theme!

hahahah I walked into gardner white today actually. I believe I had walked out of the store before the door closed behind me.

I tend not to go where there are signs that say "we finance EVERYBODY, Guaranteed"

I've bought my leather couches, man chair along with my bedroom set from VCF.

The bed room set is solid wood with nice dovetail joints and felt lined drawers. The leather has held up well to three dogs, one who likes to dig before she lays down.


So if you want to laugh about buying quality furniture while saving money then so be it.

Try the Art Van clearance center on Telegraph. Right after graduation my roommates and I bought a bunch of shit from the one on 11 mile. The salespeople were nothing like the one on Dixie

No. He did receive a nice severance package though.

If you want to spend some loot check out the motorized chairs and couches. Those are badass!
