I'm cheap, that's why. Either that, or the things offered on One Kings Lane just aren't discounted enough. Am I alone here?
Let me give you a couple examples from Tori Mellott's Tastemaker Tag Sale, which started on Tuesday evening. I've loved Tori's apartments featured in Domino and elsewhere, so I waited excitedly for her Tastemaker selections. But to my dismay, I was met with very expensive pieces on Tuesday night that I just can't get over.
Here's a sampling of the items, some still available for sale.
A vintage tulip chair, $599
A velvet x-bench, $599
A 1950's chrome chair, $599
An octagonal table, $1,499
An upholstered headboard, $1,999
A shagreen box, $249
A marble egg, $199
(all via One Kings Lane)
Okay, so I get it. Tori is famous and has great taste, and these are one-of-a-kind items....buuuuuuuuuut, am I the only one who could find similar pieces for much less? Am I the only one who thinks One Kings Lane is still expensive, despite being a discounted site?
Please tell me I'm on to something here. I don't want to go on believing that I'm the only one still living in a recession reality.
