Another Porter Chair Post

I know, I know.. but I won't stop posting about my beloved chairs until I have one or two in my posssession. I just LURVE them!!




So, I have finally found my chairs and the price is quite ridiculous as in I can get two for the price of one in a usual circumstance. BUT the shipping of said chairs will be around $900.00!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!?!?!

Did you know that you can ship items via Greyhound? Yup, the bus transportation company. I've looked into how much it would cost to ship my babies and it only cost $67.00 per chair. How crazy is that?! But the owner won't wrap and drop them off. *sigh*


I'm so annoyed. But I'm determined and I will get those chairs and not for freaking $900.00 in freaking shipping.


*Also I wouldn't decline the help of a fellow blogger that happens to live in Los Angeles..that could pick them up from showroom, wrap them lovingly and snugly in bubblewrap and cardboard and drop them off at the nearest Greyhound station. That would be AWESOME and I could provide a payment as a token of my appreciation and cover the materials for covering my babies.*

I'm not a huge fan of the style in general, but the black and white set is very hot! Very sleek and sophisticated. Hope you get your set soon!
