LA or Bust




We're taking off this morning for southern California bound for UCLA in a rented cargo van carrying a gigantic sectional sofa intent on delivering it this afternoon to our son's Fraternity House, Sigma Phi Epsilon.


Our son's friends think I am the bomb for finding them the perfect Frat Room Couch!


Check it out...
The left side has a recliner, the right side has a chaise and the middle section has a fold out bed!
The best part was the price... 40% off of $399 or 
$240.00


It's super comfy with its attached high back cushions that are like headrests.  I'm picturing a lot of good times for these frat boys on this behemoth!

  
I also scored them this vintage Parsons style coffee table from the 1970's in this fun shade of UCLA yellow.

  
Now everyone can put up their feet and have plenty of room for food and... 



Having an excuse to take a cargo van to LA is a GOOD THING!

Have a great weekend!

You are the best mom a frat boy could have! They're going to have a great time watching the games on that couch. It looks like it is brand new too. An excellent score. Have a fun time in LA!

I am cracking up! You scored the perfect sectional. Can you just see it in a year? My son in LA would love this for his apartment! Have a great time and a safe trip!

I visited your store a week or two ago and scored some major great stuff, a huge globe and a wonderful lamp for my kitchen. I'll be back. Meanwhile, even, though we are a USC family (whoops) I think you son's frat brothers will hold you in great esteem for the frat boy couch. Have fun delivering it.

Hello there! New fan here. Came across your blog this morning (I am becoming quite obsessed with all the blogs...I have always been a design/style info junkie but there only so many magazines out there. Now I have my blogs!) and I saw that you have a son at UCLA. I have a daughter at UCLA! She is an Alpha Phi and has always said that the boys in Sigma Phi Epsilon are the sweetest on campus. About to send you a comment when I let out a scream! There's a picture of my daughter on your blog!! You are Chris's mom! You graciously invited my daughter Danielle into your home for the labor day weekend! Thank you so much for being so kind to her! She told me that you are the nicest lady! How funny is this? Love to meet you in person...going to parent's weekend? Anyways, have a safe trip down here today. You won't be seeing any of the girls. With rush starting soon, girls on lockdown.

P.S. Love the pic! Email it to me? lindadeebodnar@yahoo.com

Hey, I recognize that Salvation Army!
Those boys are pretty lucky, I have to say.

When you get back, Terri, I'd love to schedule a time to do a post on your store for my "What's Good in My 'Hood" series.

Every picture you take is better for having that lovely model in it! I need her to take me shopping. I would love a post about her clothes style. Ann

Loved visiting last weekend. The shop is a great endeavor.
