More floral fugliness



The owners of this couch inherited it from a great aunt. It doesn't match their "modern" decor. The fact the couch is so fugly they can't even be bothered tainting their lounge room with it for the photograph should suggest to them that they would be grateful for any bids and start off the auction with no reserve. But no, they thought a $375 opening bid would get the ball rolling. Surprise, surprise, no bidders. $20 in the hand will get you a jug and a bowl of fries down my local (or two parmas at Tuesday night trivia), greed will get you nothing but a $4 eBay listing fee down the drain and the cost of a call to the Salvos begging them to get this fugly number out of your driveway.

Eww this one just looks soo... comfy cozy and stiff. I'm getting a neck ache just looking at it. And now my eyes hurt!

I think they are being dodgy and bought it at the salvo's for about $10 and are now trying to make a profit on it. it is pretty funny to see a lounge set displayed on the driveway, maybe they will just push it up onto the road for hard rubbish night? that is very convenient!

Hannah, I love your theory! The old "my dead Great Aunt" trick, you reckon?

If so, it backfired big time...
