But what's done is done. I've said it, so let's just keep on rolling here.
About three weeks ago, I found a like-new fridge on Craig's List, and I've been emailing with the seller ever since. The fridge is like-new because it's a showroom model from an appliance store in the Bronx. According to rumor (and the salesman selling me the fridge) the fridge, a Summit FFBF280W, is fresh-out-of-the-box, in pristine condition, and even comes with a warranty (granted-- it's brief. It's only a 30-day warranty.) I did a good amount of research and the fridge comes with rave reviews, so fingers-crossed, this baby is gonna be a gem, not a dud.
Here's the online image:
Summit FFBF280W to our house in Callicoon for an additional $150.00. Considering refrigerators are heavy and we've got our hands full at the farm, $150.00 seemed like a good price to have a fridge miraculously appear in our kitchen. Also, NOT picking up a refrigerator in the Bronx on a Friday afternoon is worth far more than $150.00. The really good news is that he's going to deliver it TOMORROW MORNING!
I'm so excited to switch over to this fancy-pants fridge. The one that came with the farmhouse had a fierce inch of mold in the freezer, and even though I've scrubbed it clean (numerous times), my memory of the mold is vivid and unwavering. Not only that, but it's a monster of a thing-- a true suburban fridge-- so we're thinking we'll move it into the basement as a back up for holidays and social events, and use this svelte new one upstairs!
