Our daughter, Tiffany was kind enough to go out to the Home Decorators show room in Chicago today to look at the Mino bedroom set we'd ordered on-line. We were willing... in our aggravation of not finding something we like in Hawaii... to pay the horrendous 75% shipping fee.
Unfortunately, the Home Decorators people said we had to order the set before we could find out if the vendor could ship to Hawaii. They said not to worry if we didn't like it because they would give us the option to accept or decline once they figured out the final cost and whether it could even be sent.
We ordered. Once we found out it could be sent to Hawaii we sent Tiffany out to look at it.
Then they told us that it may already have been sent.
We called and e-mailed and they said that once they know the cancellation of the order has gone through, they would refund our money. Uhhhhhh?
Tif took several photos and at first we thought it looked pretty but then she focused on the details that showed rather poor workmanship that you couldn't see from the set pictured on-line.
The on-line set boasted English dovetailing. As you can see by this photo Tif sent, there's no dovetailing at all.
The drawers could only open seven and a half inches!
There were also no track glides so Tif said the drawers could not open and shut smoothly.
So there you have it.... back to furniture shopping.
And let's hope we get our money back without any trouble.
P.S. I just got an e-mail message reassuring me that Home Decorators.com has cancelled the order and would be crediting our account. Phew! That's a relief!
