WHICH was fine, they were out of my price range, but I loved them so much I wanted to know what he was going to do with them. So I asked him, and he ignored me, until I actually had to walk around him to get in his direct sight line before he would answer me (no he wasn't deaf) and says, "oh, I don't know yet". Then some young guy comes up and is talking to the same guy, so I ask him what they are going to do with them, just cause I'm curious and I think they're great. He flippantly tells me they are "for his dad."
Well it didn't take me long to figure out that they were re-sellers too, but seriously, does it hurt to be nice? Being nice is free, it doesn't cost anything, so don't be an asshole. I moved on to my next spot where I found these...
pair of these
As I'm walking out after making my purchases the two rude dudes walk in and I give them a smirk knowing that I've just bought the only good thing in the place. Karma, I swear it works.
While you are reading this post this morning I'm on my way up to DC to pick up an etagere (I know I said I was getting one of these earlier, but the seller backed out and decided that she wanted to keep it...which is the most annoying thing in this business!).
