One that got away...

I spied this Hickory Chair french provencial sofa for $175 on Craigs-Houston last weekend. With visions of a fantabulous redo for my sister's formal living area, I immediately contacted the seller. Yes, she still had it, yes, she'd make an exception, and let me pay via paypal to secure it. Suh-WEET.
However, over the course of the last three days, lines of communication went awry, and well, she decided my sister and I were too complicated to deal with. Whaaa? I'm just a designer/sister in BRAZIL trying to coordinate a purchase ONLINE, that my SISTER who lives in ANOTHER TOWN will pick up in HOUSTON. How is that so complicated? got away...dammit.
Means something better is meant to be...right???
