I haven’t told my godmother yet. I don’t think it’s fair that I have to so I’ve been avoiding it since last night. But I’m much too far ahead in the story. Rewind to Tuesday …
I’m eating a donut and drinking a coffee and checking out Lowe’s site when I see this. It’s $298! My brain isn’t processing this amount. It CAN’t be $298. But it is. I nearly spill coffee on myself.
I print a photo and all the details and that night, I show it to the godmother. She falls in love. Immediately.
“That’s it. That’s the one,” she says. “It’s the one for the women’s restroom.”
She wanted me to check out Lowe’s for something for the men’s restroom and I said I would. I did. I found a small standard one (the only one the room is big enough to handle) and cheaper than Home Depot.
I was ready to order both for her yesterday. Except … when my cart came back up, the cart that had the dream vanity in it, it said “unavailable.”
I called and talked to a customer service rep and last night, a local store manager called me. Apparently, this vanity had been discontinued sometime back. He had no explanation for why it remained on both their Web site and manufacturer RSI’s. He said he checked stores all over to see if someone had one in stock, but no dice. So that's it for the perfect style, perfect size, perfect price.
There are a few options but only one is a real possibility. Meanwhile, I’ve continued to look but in vain. Now I have to burst that bubble. Lucky me.
