Furniture stores in PV

Post by Cgyguy » Sun Mar 02, 2008 8:56 pm

Hi. I'm in the process of buying a condo in Old Town and would appreciate any tips on furniture stores as I'm looking at buying a new sofa & chair, as well as looking for a glass dining room table. Anyone know of some semi modern furniture stores? Thanks Cgyguy. :?:

I still don't get it. What does any of that have to do with the location of a furniture store? Chuck... 8)

Taste

Post by Jennybean » Mon Mar 03, 2008 8:35 pm

Easy answer - because gay men are known worldwide for their very good taste in home decor.

Now the hard answer - Cgyguy, you're probably going to want to hit the forums that are more heavily populated with expats and locals than this one is; those types of forums and message boards generally have a ton of suggestions on everything from furnishings to insurance to condo management. Send me a private message and I will give you some information.

Did you really say that, Jennybean? Isn't that just a LITTLE prejudice and sterotypical? Chuck...

No

Maybe in your mind. In 99% of the rest of the population they would see that as a compliment, and that's EXACTLY what it was and nothing more.

Don't start another fight, huh?

A compliment? And yould you compliment the Jews by saying they are rich or the Blacks by saying they like watermellon? How could your comment possibly be a compliment? Chuck... 8)

Yes it's a compliment and one I usually find to be the case. Thanks for the advice about posting in other groups as well. Take care and have a great day. Cgyguy

I hope Cgyguy hasn't been standing up for over a year since he posted this request for help in March '08.
