Maybe you could have a "reverse fundraiser". People have been selling "bricks" with the name of their funder for years. How about if you chopped it up into small pieces, and sold them to us for $5 each.
"A Piece Of The Couch".
Thanks CIACulinaryKid!!! I most certainly dance to my own song...as I am an amazing songstress as well. I think my unbelievably exceptional talents are deeply rooted in the strength of my character and depth of my modesty.
Hollywood Regency at its Finest. This style is in great demand in Cali. and would sell out there in a minute. Here in Charleston, not so much, here they like that cookie cutter safe style. Overall a great HW Regency period sofa and chair that shows you do not follow the sheeples but dance to your own song.
btw i don't think its ugly.
majestic is a better word.
Maybe we could have a regular city paper posters' meetin on the ugly couch?
anyone interested in a meeting..leave a post.
I'm partial to early bird diner. horned mammal likes huddle house. (blech)
Would be cool to have a meet up.
Olivia visited the couch this morning and decided it wouldn't fit in the space she wanted to put it. So...I'm back to square one...with both the sectional and throne for sale. Womp Waaaaassas...lol!
Couch - 81 inches
Sectionals - 43 inches each
Throne - 28 wide by 33 long
I remember when Jack Hunter used a similar tactic in the Charleston City Paper to try to sell his favorite Fiero. Unfortunately, it seems that City Paper editors Stephanie Barna and Chris Haire have deleted the article from the Internet.
Olivia is getting the sofa ;-)
The Throne is still available. Had an offer of $350 for it yesterday...but no response from that email address last night or this morning.
Soooo....let me know if you're still interested ;-)
I'm traveling in France and I think it would be a lovely addition to the Palais de Versailles!
I hope Olivia wins the bid, and I want to see the "strange" and "amazing" photoshoots.
should donate it to us at Charleston Habitat for Humanity-we will find it a great home.
I'm driving a pickup truck cross country. There's no way I'm taking this with me! It would completely obstruct my view. The current Bids are $550 for the sofa and $350 for the couch. I hate to seperate them...but both offers are better than expected. Someone asked me to wait for a call for their wife for permission make an on the throne...which I still don't have dims on because I've been responding to emails all day. I said I'd decide by the end of the day. Lets do midnight. I'll go borrow something to get dims.
Today has been so much fun!!!
Thanks City Paper!!!!
This is Kinda a joke, so I hope the PC crowd does not pile on; But, if you can get it to San Fran, you can sell it, recoup your cost of transportation, & walk away with a tidy profit; Remember, this was posted with tongue in cheek! I think (??) it is pretty in a VERY regal manner; I love plastic on furniture; I have even seen it on lampshades; You can't argue with it's (plastic) effectiveness, but aesthetics? I guess in reality, beauty Is........!
Is it comfy?
Talk about overwhelming...lol. I wrote this letter out of sheer frustration. The consignment shop was honestly the last straw! Thanks for showing so much love to my couch. I've actually received a few reasonable offers. If you want to make an offer, send me an e-mail, and I'll decide by the end of the day. I just want it to be happy! Someone asked about the dims of the Throne.
I'm in the middle of packing...so as soon as I find the ziplock bag that is my tool box...I'll post them here :-)
I could see it fitting in well in a brothel.....Quite the conversation piece.
Wherever it ends up, can I visit?
It may not just be the ugliest sofa in Charleston but also the longest!
20 ft long? Ain't no party like a couch party!
Someone please save this thing!
Give it to Olivia! Give it to Olivia!! Imagine how famous your fabulous couch will be! Used in photography is an EXCELLENT new life for these pieces! (oh and @Sarah Elizabeth Phillips - Royals immediatley popped in my head too!)
