It's A Good Thing

Sometimes I just can't get over how lucky I am. Or how wonderful people can be.

I signed up a new account. She's been in business for a while, but has decided instead of doing just "custom" work, she's going to open a store front. I think it's a great idea, she's in the perfect location and her vision is spot on.

Anyway, we've been working on her line-up and making sure we've got everything just right. Now, this account isn't going to be HUGE. In fact, in my previous job, my boss would have told me I'm "wasting too much time for too little income." I don't do things that way. EVERYONE deserves the best you can give them. Period.

The other day she called on my cell. As we were chatting about her first order she cuts me off. There was something she'd been meaning to tell me, and always forgets.

Then she made an offer that, well, to say it surprised me would be a pretty big understatement

She wants me to stop by the shop and pick out what furniture I'd like and she'll get it for me wholesale. AND have it delivered. Here. To THE Valley.

That is an incredibly generous offer. Normally I would be offered "employee discounts" by my customers. I never ask, but they usually put that in there. But WHOLESALE? Never, ever has that been an option.

I wish I could tell you the mark up on furniture. You may THINK you know, but unless you been "inside" you would never guess. This is going to save me a FORTUNE and get my home together much MUCH faster than I had dared hope.

We'll start out with the dining room. And entertainment center for the Living Room. Then.....I'm going to buy the bedroom set I've never had. Exactly what *I* want. Pieces that all match. Quality stuff. Something that will last my lifetime.

I'm just blown away at her generosity. I'm telling you, every time I start to think the world isn't that great a place, something like this happens to remind me that there ARE people out there with good hearts.

And I just love it when that happens....

WOW! That's incredibly nice of her to do that for you; just proves that karma thing. ;)
