I stopped by the Salvation Army today and found this treasure.
I quickly called D and told him that I had found the deal of a lifetime. He said, "Now what?" I went on to tell him that I found a baby grand piano at the Salvation Army that had a some discoloration from being in a house fire but it was beautiful and sounded great and was in great condition. He told me that I could get it if I had a place for it. I told him I did. (Not really, but I couldn't let it just sit there. I would find somewhere.)
I pulled the price tag off of it and ran to the book section to see if there were any piano books for me to play a song on it. I found one guitar book and it was enough for me to play and really get a feel for it. One of the workers came out and asked me if I was really interested in getting it. I quickly responded, "yes". He was nervous for me and explained that they have a no return policy. I was fine knowing that I was getting such a great piece. In his nervousness he knocked down the price 20% and then another 20%. I was ecstatic. I got out the car and sent a text to D telling him how much I had gotten our baby grand for. Woohoo
On my way home I called a piano moving company and they were able to deliver it this afternoon. I am so happy. I love it. And.....I really did have a place for it after all. Right where the other piano used to be. :)
