Yes, ladies I have been drooling over this piece of furniture since last weeks Pier 1 circular. I even folded the page and told my husband that what I wanted for Christmas was all right there. His response: A muffled laugh and a "we can't afford that" comment(because of the $299 price tag). I was crushed. As I get older each year I find it harder to make up a Christmas list, and the one year I am POSITIVE of what I want, I get shot down. I blame it on this crappy economy. Darn. I will just have to wait for it to go on sale, and hope that it is still around. Can you blame a girl for trying?
