The $100 Couch!
I saw this couch about two weeks ago and just knew I had to have it. I was told it was already sold and that it would be moved before the session that I was scheduling. Then, to make it worse, Dana told me it was only $100! Oh, you gotta be kidding me. Of course, not everyone would be thrilled over it.
Well, a week went by, went and did the session, using the couch, but it would be 'gone' a few days later. Well, then, Dana gives me the number of the woman (Amanda) who bought it. She only lived down the road from my photo studio. Turns out she reupholsters furniture for a living and recently had moved her business back into her home to save on overhead (something I'm considering doing with my studio!).
She agreed to sell me the couch for the same price she paid for it. So, I recruited a couple of my son's friends (that had a pickup) and we went and got the couch.
While I was talking to Amanda, she mentioned she would be needing photos of her kids soon.
Oh, and my husband is less than thrilled with the color of the couch. IT works for me, since I love blues and greens and collect quite a bit of blue and green glass - vases, decorative pieces.
