I've taught him well : )

As many of you know, I've been stocking up on things we'll need for our baby for a LONG time (it was my therapy during the year & a 1/2 that I couldn't get pregnant) & I LOVE finding good deals on things! Over the past 2 years we've acquired a crib, crib mattress, crib bedding, stroller, 2 car seats w/ bases (1 for each car), high chair, porta-crib, swing, and (my favorite) SUPER cute diaper bag. Anthon has always been grateful of my enthusiasm to find things we need for a good price, but hasn't really been that involved in "the hunt" to find stuff. Well, I've been on the constant search for a gliding rocking chair, but could never find one I liked @ a decent price... ANTHON DID!This is Anthon's awesome find (one of his customers was trying to get rid of it before a move)! It's only a year old, & it's like brand new- it doesn't squeak at all when you rock in it and the cushions are really fluffy & comfortable!! I looked it up on Babies'R'Us.com to see how much it cost new- $200 for the chair, $100 for the ottoman... we paid $40 for BOTH!! I didn't think I'd like a cherry finish since all the other nursery furniture is white, but this one is too pretty to refinish! I'll see if I still like the color once we have everything put together in the baby's room, if not I'll make it into what I want it :).

The white cushions will tie in great with the white furniture! Great idea to stock up along the way, not such a big deal on the pocket book now! :)

Good Job Anthon! I really like it. Good thing it doesn't squeak. Mine does. I hate it. $ 40 is a great deal. My mother in law paid a lot more for mine and it is a piece of crap. Don't tell her that.
