Note my lovely assistants model our new patio set (aka Chloe & Matt)
Before I filled in the amount on the check I said to the man running the sale, "you sure you can't take $175?" And he said, "well, ok, but don't tell anybody." SCORE!!!! I called Matt & told him "Merry Christmas, now figure out how we are going to get this mammoth thing home and where we are going to store it."
Our neighbor had to come help us unload it because the thing is so heavy, I can't even pick it up with Matt's help. He was super impressed with my purchase and said the shopvac alone was probably worth $175. I can't wait to see all the projects I can talk Matt into now that he has some serious tools!
