    Can't remember who it is but one of the shops are advertising a new sofa in time for Christmas for £10 a month.

    I'm happy with Jilt's idea. After all I consider myself a rather hardened criminal type.

    Setting off for home in few minutes, I'll keep my eye out for a van Cullen

    I think you may know my very chilled and permissive Dutch cousins.

    Make one ?

    Cardboard boxes (number depending on what size suite), balloons (number depending on how many cushions)... and an intricate tapestry made using the fur from the thigh of a North American water shrew!

    Or maybe just DFS like A-Vic said.

    I'm certainly interested, but is that a tenner a month for the next nine generations of your family or a £40 'death house clearance' from Cash Converters? So what if you find a pair of false teeth behind the cushions of the latter, a bargain's a bargain?
  • steveJsteveJ Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 694
    Come on who do you think we are...i'd give the teeth back... A prostetic limb, now that's a different matter...well ya did say you wanted an 'Arm' chair ! (sorry!)
  • blobbyhblobbyh Font Of All Knowledge Registered Posts: 2,415
    He he he...

    ... of course I'd give the false teeth back to the relatives but only after I've tried them first and scared my kids.

    Have you tried looking in skips, some people may have thrown theirs away in anticipation of a pre christmas delivery that inevitably won't turn up.

    Are we talking about Cullen's sofa or my false teeth of the recently deceased: my imagination can apply both?
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    Talking of false teeth......

    Does anyone remember the episode of Steptoe and Son, when the Da took his teeth out to crimp the pastry on the pie he was baking?????

    (God I am old)

    SCS are the ones doing £10.00 a month lol

    DFS however always cm to have a sale, I brought one their earlier this yr (in the sale!!)
    The sales guy told me that they have to put the sofa on their sales list at full price for 6-8 weeks wen it is first released and then they can discount it, and alwways do. I mean have u ever seen a sofa in DFS at full price? lol The chap also said sometimes they dont even put a model in the showroom untill it reaches the discounted period lol

    Happy sofa hunting!!

    I'd be intrigued to see the costing breakdown of a DFS sofa. Given that they must have huge overheads - a vast advertising budget, all those stores, finance costs etc - to be absorbed the cost of materials and labour must be extremely low.
