Isn't this a fun day?
I went to Aerobics. I think a third of the class was over 80. Our instructor is 80 and I was having the hardest time keeping up with all of them! Our teacher, Mae is as nice as can be and kept reassuring my friend, Joanne and me that we would eventually get the hang and stamina for it.
When I staggered home Art said the shipping quotes came in (via e-mail) for the furniture and it was NOT good.
Haiku Designs said shipping the "Hiro" bedroom set would cost $1499.00
Then while still following Abe's advice and looking at other websites, I found the same set under a different name. It was called "Mino." The website was Home Decorator's Collection. Apparently they're affiliated with Home Depot. They said their shipping cost would be 75% of the cost of the item which would be $1888.50 if I did this right. Good grief!
However, their Mino set cost less. Altogether, buying from them would be less.
What to do, what to do...
First off, Art discovered that a Home Decorator's Collection store is located in Chicago. I'm hoping my daughter will be willing to go have a look and tell us if we should even be pursuing this route.
I'm remembering that the furniture set at Inspirations Furniture is half the cost of this one. Sigh...
Once this decision is made and our Prius is finally shipped to Hawaii, we'll be able to lay low and not worry about another major purchase for a while. Unless there's a hurricane or fire or termites attack the house or the pipes spring a leak or.... Arrrghhhh!
