I just got home from getting a great deal. I’ve talked about how I planned to splurge on a nursery glider/rocker this time around. B didn’t sleep and we spent a lot of time attempting to calm him in the Ikea chair we bought. It never worked so we ended up walking around with him. It was exhausting in the middle of the night.

I planned on getting one of these five. But then I looked on Craigslist yesterday (like I do at least a couple of times a week) and came across TWO DwellStudio Myles gliders (retails for $1249) and two ottomans (retails for $490) in charcoal fabric. One  set (both the chair and ottoman) was brand new for $425 and the other was a floor model set selling for $385. I immediately emailed and was so grateful to get a quick response from Creative Kidstuff, the local store selling these beauties.

Hint: They still had the Savoy glider left this morning, if you’re in the Minneapolis area. I didn’t find it quite as comfortable, but it’s gorgeous! See! 

I packed up B this morning and drove to their warehouse in Minneapolis to try out the chair. When we arrived, the new one had just been purchased. I looked over the floor model and knew I had to get it. It was in excellent shape and I have never seen a set that I liked for less than $650. It was very comfortable and B loved it.

Little B has been home from school for two days because of the cold weather. He is now home again because he had a fever from some travel vaccines. He was feeling well this morning and was such a trooper. He was really excited to get the chair home and was disappointed when it didn’t fit in our car. Fortunately, it will fit without the carseat, so I’m heading there tomorrow to pick it up. It’s already paid for and ours! So excited to get this nursery started!

Feeling lucky! I love these five tips from Oh Happy Day for how to seal the deal on Craigslist. Have you found any amazing deals on Craigslist?

p.s. Sorry for the lack of photos on this one. Just wanted to share this great deal with you. Nursery design boards coming soon! :)
