i found some serious deals on ebay to help my dollars stretch. i scored a down comforter (originally $200) for $49 and a duvet cover (originally $495) also for $49. what a steal!
i had first seen this duvet at homegoods but it was still priced higher than i wanted to pay. the color was perfect and i could never quite get it out of my mind. when i found the same duvet on ebay bidding so low, i jumped on it. (i recommend tracking down your ebay purchase in person first so you know exactly what you're dealing with.)
although our current bed is a full, i knew we'd be upgrading to a queen in the next year or two so i opted for king size. why king? i wanted to make sure the duvet had good presence and i really dislike how every other comforter i have owned barely covers the mattress. i can honestly say that i don't have to worry about that anymore ...
now i cannot wait to get my hands on a queen bed. i think the king comforter will be a perfect fit.
if you're in the market for a new bed, both sears and macys are having incredible president's day mattress sales right now. be aware that sears mattresses are sold without box springs (even though the photo shows a complete set). i am trying to change my order now since making that discovery. happy shopping!
