Furniture Shopping Today June 14, 2008

I don’t need any furniture, but by golly I’m going look at some a big ol’ buttload of it.  The World Market Center is open to the public for this weekend, and the Parental Units and I are going to wander around in it for a couple hours.  Check out the Wikipedia on the World Market Center.  That place is HUUUGE and it’s getting even bigger next month when they open the third building.  Rod Stewart will play the opening it seems.

Usually the place is only open to furniture dealers but twice a year they have a big clearance sale and they charge you 10 bucks a head just for the priveledge of walking through the doors.  Like I said, I really don’t need any furniture, but hey, who knows?  I might find a bargain I just can’t refuse.


Shopping was limited to the first and second floors of buildings A & B.  Not all the displayers participated in the sale, but It was still HUGE.  We spent the better part of three hours there going through it all.  There were some deep discounts on the floor samples around (40 – 50%) but the vast majority wasn’t in a style that really appealed to me.  The stuff that did was still to expensive for me.  I didn’t really need any furniture anyway.  But…I don’t like my coffee and end table anymore, so I had my eye out for possible replacements.  I didn’t see anything that interested me though.

I did find something else that really interested me in one of the first showrooms we entered: a leather turtle tortiose ottoman.  It’s really, really cool but I can’t get the image to load for some reason tonight.  I’ll try again tomorrow.  Anyway, the price for it is $500+.  I have no place for it.  I don’t need it.  The cat would just scratch it up anyway.  My parents bought a really nice jewellry box there and my Dad found out that they were willing to bargain – $475 to $310 on the box.

I don’t need no damn leather tortise ottoman.
