I've been coming to terms with the fact that my sewing set up ....using my bar height Dining room table (supplemented with an extra-long glass table-topper usurped/re-purposed from my coffee table!) as my main cutting surface and a 'trash to treasure' cafe table I
Thus, I decided to loosen the purse strings a bit and go buy a real craft table.
I wanted something that was sturdy but would still fold away. This way I could have my dining room back.
I've had my eye on this Sullivan's 'Home Hobby Cutting & Craft Table' for some time now.
I priced it out at $99 at Allbrands.com and $119 at Joann.com.
Now, they both were running sales....
5$ off 25$, 10$ off 199$, etc at Allbrands (post a comment if you'd like the coupon codes)
free shipping on 50$ or more at Joann's (I think the code is on the site. Otherwise, see above)
But, after I posted the table in both shopping carts...
Allbrands was 124$ after shipping cost - 5$ off = 119$
Joann's was 119$ + free shipping + 15$ special handling = 134$
Well HMPH!! Not so fast, Jo! As much as I love Joann's, they are ALWAYS trying to pull a fast one! Like giving out 50% off codes on all 'full priced' items only to have you look and see that EVERYTHING is already discounted, therefore ineligible!! (I was even leaning forward as I typed this line...hee!)
Well, if it's not obvious, I went with Allbrands. And, I am eagerly awaiting my new toy... ahem... table!
