    My Fiance and I found this Dining Room Table and 6 Chairs at a steal...ok, maybe it wasn't free but as far as I am concerned we needed it and sometimes one needs to treat themselves....we are all current with our debt/bills payments etc.....We do have a little bit of room for a little luxury and to us this was it.
