    Those chairs are fabulous! The lobby rugs would be really cool to get a hold of, too. I think Disney has them sent away to be rewoven when they get worn, though.

    I got two buffalo lamps that were is pretty good condition, though I haven't tried in lightbulbs to see if they work. Mousesurplus said they might need new cords. Lampshades were not included.

    It's so fun having that armoire. Not only is it beautiful, but it's huge! I've been able to store my extra blankets and afgans as well. You're right, it does make us treat even our room differently.

    That's too cool!

    Mouse Surplus generally packs things very badly and they often arrive damaged. UPS considers their shipments to be "salvage" and only offers 20 cents on the POUND for damage, so if you bought something and it's damaged, good luck.
    I don't think that is that Mouse Surplus packs things badly. I purchased a set when it was first announce. Being in the middle of a move already, I asked if I could pick up the firniture with my already rented truck. My son, sister-in-law and I went to Orlando from the Space Coast, and were told to go to the warehouse and pick out what we want. The manager out there said we were lucky as they just pack the closest thing to the door to send out. It was almost overwhelming! We literally looked at several hundred pieces of furniture to pick out the set we wanted, and the staff there was kind enough to get the pieces even though some were buried deep. I asked about the damage, and the manager said that was how they came from Disney. This is not to make excuses for MS, but just offers an explanation.
    Our furniture is in our new spare 'Lodge Room'. I made a montage to hang in the room of pictures inside and out of the Wilderness Lodge, and even talked the desk clerk out of one of those hotel cards on the back of the door to put on mine!

    Re: My new Wilderness Lodge bedroom!

    Sealsm, about your shipping, I had the same problem!! We ordered two armoires, a bed and a bedspread. The auction closed May 14, and after SEVERAL phone calls and ignored e-mails we got everything but the bed on July 7. One of the armoire drawers disintegrated when we pulled it out. Carol at Mouse Surplus was always very nice on the phone, but her actions proved otherwise. We sent pictures of the broken drawer, and I asked for the bed to be sent but it never happened. Finally, I "sicked" my husband on her. Within a few days we received a new drawer and a refund for the bed + shipping.

    I was glad Carol resolved the matter, but it took her 4 months to do it. So unprofessional! I hope they can work it out as they grow, but they have a long way to go!

    Ah, I see. I'm sure he had an easier time getting his furniture home.

    how long did it take for them to tell you if they had a problem with shipping??

    (Waiting for a piece of history to arrive at my house)
    Here's what went down:
    Three weeks after the auction ended I had not received any word about anything, so I started calling the office. They said it would be shipped over the weekend, but it wasn't, so I called again. Same thing happened that time, so I sent an e-mail and that's when they informed me that they were having to switch shipping companies due to problems with UPS (that was August 11). The stuff was shipped through Forward Logistics. The auction ended on June 25th and the furniture arrived August 18th. E-mailing seemed to be more effective than calling. I hope you get your history soon!
