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 will be strange whenever you think about it, but most of our gifts were in the form of gift certificates and cash. We didn’t register anywhere, so I guess that has been the simplest way for people to state their congratulations. Regardless, the one thing that has been most obviously lacking when we got married was a bed. We did not have one, and while we had an apartment, we were relegated to a floor for the initial week we lived there. It was not bad really, merely another fond memory right from the start of our lives together.
I believe that fortune smiled upon us, because when our post office box was registered, we received an advertizement for an area bed and bath company with an important sale on mattresses and bedding. Once we walked in the store, we had the privilege of meeting directly with the owner.
He asked us exactly how we discovered the sale, and we told him that it was as a result of flier inside our post office box. He was overjoyed to know 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 picked up the bed frame to go with it, and we have had a nice bed ever since.
