More delays (or, how my Mitchel Gold & Bob Williams sofa spent a month in a warehouse)

The lovely and gregarious Sharon of Quince confirmed that my beautiful, new, slipcovered sofa left the upholstery mecca that is the Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams warehouse on September 22nd.

Today, I got a call from the delivery company that they would be in the area next week. They gave me a three hour window for delivery. Unfortunately, there is no way anyone can be here during that window. The next time they'll be in the area again is after the 18th.

For now, I stare longingly at pictures online and wait.

By the way, if you live within a reasonable distance of Delaware, there's an Alexa for sale for $399 on Craigslist up there. It was used in a model home, so it probably hasn't been used much at all. That's an amazing discount...if I lived in northern Virginia, I'd be renting a van this weekend to go get it myself!


  1. I had the same issue when I was waiting to get my sofa, its such a pain. But once I got it, I forgot all about the wait time, it was just perfect.

    I hope you get yours soon!

  2. I hope you get your sofa soon! Is there any possible way you can go to the warehouse for pickup? Just to avoid waiting another 2 weeks!

  3. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? It will be worth it!
