Two years ago I remember seeing a very unique find that I didn't act upon - which now I regret. It was a roll of linoleum. (a roll of linoleum of you say?) Yes! It was as old as the hills and looked like an old floral rug. No word of a lie. With the best faded pink and blue roses on it. Linoleum that looked like a rug. Would've been perfect for my craft room. Ugh.
Hubby and I also learned a while back that if you love something and it's a good price, snap it up! While antiquing at our favorite outdoor antique show in Odessa, we happened upon an old french bistro set - it was fabulous. We hesitated and told the seller we'd walk around for a few minutes and discuss it. We were no more than 500 feet away when I realized buying the set was a no-brainer, we hurried back only to realize she had just then sold it. We missed it by 60 seconds! But we hadn't told her for sure and she wasn't holding it for us.
