I did it. I found my dream sofa on Craigslist. Actually, I found it on Kijiji - a Canadian alternative to Craigslist that has a nicer layout and seems to have more listings but is basically the same thing at the end of the day. And, actually, if I’m being honest, I think I prefer the look of a tight back and turned legs on my dream roll arm sofas but, but, but...I’m not complaining. I’m not complaining at all because the sofa is a roll arm, with casters (and brass!), barely used, beautiful, perfectly neutral colour, quality made, 90” wide and 40” deep (glorious!), and I’m getting it for about 80% off the retail price. Can we say MAJOR SCORE. I’ll totally live with a loose back if that’s the trade off! I’m trying to not get too happy until it’s actually in my possession (I pick it up tomorrow morning) but the seller has confirmed, we’ve agreed on a time, and the ad has been removed...so it’s basically a done deal, right? Unless something is utterly wrong with it that wasn’t disclosed up front...fingers crossed. If all goes smoothly there will most definitely be a post about finding your dream sofa, or furniture in general, on the never-ending black hole that is Craigslist/Kijiji because I have some tips!

In other news, the semi-annual Christie Antique show is tomorrow – are any of you going? I am! I got some great deals last year and will be meeting up with a friend there to see what else we can uncover. If you see me there be sure to say “hello!”

Woofstock is also taking place this weekend. It’s been 4 years since I last went with Howard so we’ll be going on Saturday or Sunday. I’m looking forward to seeing what new goodies I can pick up for my beloved.

And finally, X-Men opens today! I’m a huge fan of the X-Men franchise/series so will most definitely heading out to see it with my younger brothers this weekend. Very excited for this!

Oh! And This Is Verity is up and running...and has been since May 5th! New content is posted Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays so be sure to add it to your reader and check it out. The response has been so supportive and positive and I’d love for you all to go have a look.

Alright, that’s it from me. Two posts in one week...something must be in the air! Have a great weekend!


  1. Congrats. I know that is a great feeling. I'm on my way to look for a new sofa as well.

  2. Congratulations on the couch! It is really pretty. I'll need details of how you search craigslist :-)

  3. Gorgeous sofa! Congrats!!

    By the way-- I've been meaning to tell you that I'm having issues with This Is Verity. The formatting of the site is totally off on my computer (Macbook) where I can't actually read but a small portion of anything posted (no scrolling, etc). Are their certain browsers the site isn't working in?

  4. Yay, congrats on finding a great couch.
