The find was a surprisingly stylish buffet. I had noticed it when it first arrived at Sam's and was around $550. This was a reasonable price but was too much for the old Chic on a Shoestring Decorating budget... especially when I didn't really need it. I had a dining room buffet already, mine was just a little too formal for me.
While strolling through Sam's several months later "my" buffet was stuck in the clearance corner, it had a slight scuff on it (that is repairable) and had been marked down to $100!!
What?! Did I read that right??
Seriously, $100 bucks.
All mine. Score. Squeal... jump up and down... raise the roof... sweeeeeet deal!
So, maybe this sounds like a good deal to you but not a squeal... jump up and down... raise the roof type of deal.
Here's the kicker...
The decorating rock star Pottery Barn sells the exact same buffet for $1400!!!

Yes,I got a Pottery Barn-esque buffet at Sam's Club (of all places) for about 93% off the Pottery Barn price... 93% less!!
I was able to sell my old formal buffet for $100, still can't believe I got the new one for the same price!
