This weekend I was floored by the great finds at Value City Furniture and Pier One. We picked up this couch for a mere $377!! It was both comfortable and in microfiber, fulfilling my two requirements for a sofa(bring on the spills, acchem...Gideon!)
Look what cool mirrors they have too!

Next stop: Pier One, where I picked up two of these bamboo chairs for $99!!! Yipppee!

Look what else they had on clearance....great stuff! 

Question about Pier One??  They have considerable mark up on items from imported countries (where I've traveled and seen the same hand-made products) but I wonder how much of that money makes it back in those countries pockets? Let me know if you know the answer, I'm concerned.
