|More Mud Bench on display at Cost Plus World Market|
A couple days after the new year I looked up the bench. They are having a furniture sale and there it is on sale for $129! I even had a $10 off coupon that I could use and I would use some money got we for Christmas to pay for it. I went that very day right after work and bought it. They didn't have one on display but I had the item name and they were able to find it for me in the back.
This worked out perfectly. The bench I wanted AND in stock and on sale! I got the very last one. I triumphantly walked into the house and said to Mj, "Yeah, I got that bench we liked. It was on sale!" I go through my pics on my lap top to check out the bench and the dimensions again. I am startled to see that the bench that I took a picture of before Christmas cannot be the same bench that is now sitting in a box inside my front entry way. I zoom in on the pic and see that the not only are the dimensions different but so is the item name. In my excitement over seeing this cute bench I thought it was the same one as before when in fact, it's totally different. How lame am I? Seeing the pictures side by side it's obvious that they are different but I absolutely did not realize it until I did this. Feeling a little deflated I try to find the More Mud bench on the website and it's actually nowhere to be found. It's almost like it was a figment of my imagination except I happen to have picture proof that it was not. Strange. I like the "new" bench but I'm thinking that I would have liked the other one better. It's been difficult finding one we both like that is in our price range and quality that I can trust. The Malay bench is very similar and I certainly don't feel like lugging it back to the store so I decided to keep it.
