Mad Craigslist Skilz

There are simply some good souls out there, and I count many of you, MLHP readers, among them. I received an email from a Craigslist scout saying she had read my post about needing a french-style settee for Mary's Design Dilemma. Remember how Mary is crazy for this lovely, but pricey settee from Wisteria?Well, Dear Reader found this bee-YOOT version, and forwarded the link onto me...
It's smaller than the Wisteria version, but I think we can still work with it. Aaaand, it is otherwise ready to go in Mary's room - for A LOT less coin! Cross your fingers that we'll be able to snag it before it's gone.
(Thank you, again, Allie!)
