Treasures: Desk

I found this awesome secretary a few weeks ago while thrifting with my favourite thrift buddy, Julie. It had a huge 30$ price tag on it when we were there but Julie said that the week before it was priced lower.

I went to the person in charge of pricing and told her about this. I also might have said something like, “Can I get it for 18$? It looks really OLD”.

The manager looked at me like I was a 10yr old and said, “Ummm. It is an ANTIQUE!”.

I stayed confident in my 18$ offer and she said, ’28$’. The next minute sounded like this:

’20’

’26’

’20’

’25’

’20’

’23’

’20’

’22’

’20 and I’ll buy more stuff’

‘Deal’

Lesson learned: Stand firm when bartering…then buy more stuff. 🙂

So I got about 20 vintage wooden hangers for 2$.
