Should I???????? OPTION II
The set is $1850 which isn’t too bad. But the shipping would be $1300, which freaks me out.
I have not ruled out the set yet, and the seller knows another shipper who might do better on the price.
Yesterday, Jenine found another set, which is but 2.5 hours away! And only $1250!
This second set looks to be of a bit lower quality than the first set. I like set #2 rather than love it. And that makes me nervous. I have not purchased any furnishings for the house I do not love. I love love love every piece of furniture in the parlor and dining room.
Still, #2 is but $1250 vs. #1 at $3150! And, once the Octagon Room is fully furnished and decorated, I am gonna guess that the bedroom set will not register all that much. Mostly, the set will reinforce the period feeling of the room, which is what I mostly want.
Set #2 is still available. The seller listed the set for a friend, and I am waiting for her to forward the friend’s telephone number.
All this is kinda crazy & compulsive as I am like, at best, a year away from getting the suite finished. But, having a bedroom set in advance will help plan the layout and location of lighting and electrical boxes. So, maybe not totally crazy & compulsive! Plus, it been fun thinking about something other than shingling!
