One that got away...

I spied this Hickory Chair french provencial sofa for $175 on Craigs-Houston last weekend. With visions of a fantabulous redo for my sister's formal living area, I immediately contacted the seller. Yes, she still had it, yes, she'd make an exception, and let me pay via paypal to secure it. Suh-WEET.
However, over the course of the last three days, lines of communication went awry, and well, she decided my sister and I were too complicated to deal with. Whaaa? I'm just a designer/sister in BRAZIL trying to coordinate a purchase ONLINE, that my SISTER who lives in ANOTHER TOWN will pick up in HOUSTON. How is that so complicated?
Anyway...it got away...dammit.
Means something better is meant to be...right???

Aw! I hate it when craigslist goes awry. There nice thing is that there is always something else out there.
