So we gave Craigslist a try, and I am absolutely in love with that site now. Here's what we found and purchased last week, and I must say, I can't wait to see it in the house and start using them:
The table - it has a leaf so it will expand to 54 x 54; counter height
The chairs - we got all four of them to go with the table, and they are cushioned and comfy
We got all of them for a fantastic deal which we couldn't pass up, and everything is in fanstastic condition, so that made me even more willing to get it... So now the hunt is on for the black side by side fridge. We're in no hurry, since we have until July to find one.
The frame is being started today, so by the end of the week we should have a "house." I can't wait for that!
