They just keep coming.

Bedroom set – French Prudential – $400

Antique off white with light blue trim includes headboard, huge mens chest, long bureau with two mirrors and nightstand. This set is very heavy and oversized. There is also another long bureau which does not belong to the set which is available for $50 which looks similar. xxx-xxx-xxxx

Seriously. I’m going to start my own furniture style and call it the Norwegian Allstate style. (That came just after the Belgian Geico style, and just before the Spanish Metropolitan Life style.)

    Sadly, no. There is one person in Boston who I think has posted multiple listings (the last post on French Prudential all came from that person) but I’ve found others on the West Coast, in the Midwest, and in Florida.

    Personally, my taste in furniture is Italian Geico.

    Dear God, I laughed myself silly, as well, then I cried.
