New sofas: We finally found our bargain

You may remember the little story I told about missing out on a great bargain sofa at a local furniture clearance event, but never fear, every cloud does indeed have a silver lining. In my case, this lining came in the form of a successful bid on eBay for two nearly-new grey John Lewis two-seater sofas which came in at £200 for the pair. Given that these little babies usually retail at around the £600-£700 mark, I am well and truly thrilled with them.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with said eBay, as just before I bagged my lovely settees, I lost out to another grey two-seater from Sofa Sofa at the very last second. I was so bitterly disappointed with the loss of another sofa, that I literally spent hours trawling through search pages to find a better option and found the John Lewis pair and my happy ending.

This all happened about a week before the big move and we organised the pick up (only about 30 minutes away from the new house – bonus) for moving day so we had somewhere to sit after a hard day of lifting, unpacking and assembling. The Mr would have been quite happy without a sofa or two for the first couple of weeks, but, for me, they were a necessity!
