I want to share the diamond in the rough I have found. It all started on Saturday when I told my husband who is out of town that I found the bed for us online.He told me that I should shop around but for me I had already done so online. He suggested I go to the Flea Market on Beach Blvd and I thought he was joking.He said he had seen some nice things there, but I was weary. Well, I decided to go and I discovered Martini Furniture. I was very impressed and now I am expectingto have my new bed delivered in just 2 days and it is gorgeous. If you have good taste but want to budget then Martini Furniture is the place for you. I was so happy with the style, the quality and the customer service. I didn't have to ask for help, even though it was busy and that matters to me. I like attention and good customer service.I told the owner that I would leave her a nice review online and her face lit up. Once I looked online I noticed that they don't have much of an online presence but they do have a website. So I have decided to leave a few reviews here and there for good measure. For one I get to support a business that I believe deserves a lot more recognition that it has and two I get to share the good thing that I have found. I rely on trustworthy reviews for certain items and love when someone shares a good deal with me, so here is my chance to pay it forward. Enjoy! I hope you find something that makes me as happy as my purchase has made me.I came here to post and saw the previous review. Now I am not sure if they sell used things because I didn't see anything that looked used. I did notice a little dark spot on the white footboard and pointed it out but I was assure that I would get mine's straight out of the box.I am keeping my own mattress and box springsI didn't think to check for bedbugs and that is a scarey concept.I am going to stop by Home Depot and get some Diatomaceous Earth just to be on the safe side. An ounce of prevention is better than the cure, so an 8oz bottle it is going to be. I don't think it is true but i don't want to take any chances. Now that I think about it, I will always do that when bringing home anything I purchase furniture wise.I am going to dust everything with DE and keep one eye open. But still I find it hard to believe something like that is possible. Oh and wait a minute, wait a minute, I just remembered the catalogs they had as well. I was able to look through it to see if there was something else that I liked besides what I saw on the floor. In fact, now I remember there were other people looking through the catalogs too. How would they show us catalogs to shop from if the furniture was all used? Who would have owned such nice furniture first? ha ha A foreclosed mansion or estate sale is the only place that could have housed the bed I chose. It is that beautiful and if that is the case I don't mind. I would love to be able to shop for previously owned Mansion/Estate furniture for an everyday price. I guess that was a disgruntled customer or something.Oh and I also just remembered that I told her I wanted the delivery people to take my old set. As not to be charged extra, I told her she could sell it as used but she never agreed. She gave me a strange look when I said that and there was a slight shaking of the head. At that moment I kinda wished I had never suggested it. I was embarrassed just a little but I told her it would be a good idea. Mainly because there is no way I am going to be able to carry my heavy frame out to the garbage by myself.I really would hate to have it sit here until my husband gets home. Plus the bed frame and headboard I have now is way nice, too nice to be in the garbage.
My wife and friend got into a wreck on friday. After getting there and getting the vehicle, my wife was not allowed to get anything out of the vehicle since the registration and the plate didnt match. I had just gotten disabled Vet plates. So my 3 year old son got to stand in pee pee filled pants for 2.5 hours while this driver talked to the owner. They were not allowed to get anything out of the vehicle. My friend is a 100% disabled Vet and she could not get her medication or any thing she needed for the night, so my family got to to Walmart and buy all new stuff. I got a correct registration on Monday and drove 4 hours to jacksonville and signed to release this vehicle. Ms Karen was awesome. the driver that was there saturday was also very nice. It is a shame that one bad apple can make the entire company look bad. I did get to talk to the owner on monday and he tried to explain that since they didnt know the entire story and he had been burned in the past with husband and wife disputes, which i can understand, but it does not explain why my son had to sit in wet pants and when they got to the towing company, they asked to use the bathroom and the dispatcher, another not nice employee, told my family the water was off and the bathroom didnt work....but monday it worked great....i was treated great , but friday my family was not.....the police officer even told my family they could get what they needed once they got the vehicle off the highway. Karma is a beast...it will bite you back...promise.....
