When my wife and I were first married, we did not have much by means of furniture and appliances. We didn’t get many of these things at our reception either, Dormidan which is strange once you think about it, but nearly all of our gifts were in the proper execution of gift certificates and cash. We didn’t register anywhere, so I guess that was the simplest way for people to state their congratulations. Whatever the case, the thing that was most obviously lacking once we got married was a bed. We did not have one, and while we had a condo, we were relegated to the ground for the very first week we lived there. It wasn’t bad really, just another fond memory from the beginning of our lives together.
I feel that fortune smiled upon us, because as soon as our post office box was registered, we received an advertizement for a local bed and bath company with a significant sale on mattresses and bedding. When we walked in to the store, we had the privilege of meeting directly with the owner.
He asked us how we heard bout the sale, and we told him so it was due to the flier within our post office box. He was overjoyed to understand that his advertizing was working and gave us extra care and attention. We chosen the mattress that people wanted and had it delivered that afternoon. A couple of days later, we acquired the bed frame to go with it, and we’ve had a great bed ever since.
