Antic- Couch – $3500

This beautiful Antic French prevention style couch has been in the family for over 40 years. The reason for the sale is that we are moving out of country. Will accept only cash or cashers check, will deliver also.

I was getting worried that our favorite furniture style wasn’t showing up on Craigslist anymore. I thought people might actually be learning something from this blog, and we can’t have that!

Thank goodness for this beautiful item — it’s an antic, you know!

Thanks for spotting this, Erin!

    does it really and truly prevent the French? If so, it’s might be worth putting up with its antics.

    Cashers check? Would that be a casher’s check? A check made out by the party or parties to be cashing/depositing said check. If so this sounds like a great deal! They’re offering to deliver a couch that not only prevents the French but carries on with a unique brand of (presumably hilarious) antics. To top it off the seller is going to pay himself $3500 for the privilege. If only the couch matched my decor.

    I hope they’re moving somewhere with a dictionary.

    French Prevential is one thing, but French Prevention brings to mind the scene from Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, with the Protestant across the street…

    A couch that prevents French antics? I’ll take one in every color my friend. Now how do I find a casher?

    What kind of antics are required to prevent the French? I’m imagining something violent and possibly pornographic… :X

    Reminds me weirdly of a chick I once knew who would always say “anticdotes” instead of “anecdotes”, which I thought was a pretty funny malapropism.

      I once had a college professor who said it like that.

      And I once had a section sergeant in Germany who would say “now, to the pacifics of the situation”. Once, early on, I asked “what about the Atlantics of the situation?”. I got in trouble but it was totally worth it.

    I hope they’re moving to a country where english isn’t the primary language, because so far it’s not a strong suit.

    I don’t think it’s AN “antic”, I think it’s antic like Hamlet. Personally I’m not sure I’d want a sofa that is pretending to be insane in order to prevent Frenchness.
