FMJ - Day 300

January 21: Two days of furniture shopping and we come across a remodeling liquidation sale at Alpert's Furniture in Newbury Park. We found the most perfect sofa, love seat, 2 Asian flair chairs, ottoman and coordinating pillows. It's a tan colored sueded micro-fiber on the couch and love seat with Ebony wood chairs with a dark red fabric with muted brown circle prints. The ottoman is also covered with the circle print fabric. It's funny how you shop and shop with nothing really striking the right cord. Then, in the last place you'd expect... Vwalla! This sofa set is just our style... contempary lines, asian flair, earthy colors.

Best thing yet... not made in China. Made in America! North Carolina!

Ajay found 7 incredibly corroded pennies at Alpert's. The store had an old fountain in the entrance way that they were dismantling. Ajay found the pennies in their rubble.

A trip to Ralph's in Thousand Oaks for groceries yielded a dime and three pennies.
