This week we came across an episode of The Big Bang Theory we'd never seen before. In it, the amazingly nerdy and scientific main characters used Ebay to bid on a "miniature" time machine. Click through the jump to leave us your thoughts on good purchases gone bad and see a 2 minute clip from the show, explaining why this seemingly good purchase went awry.
We personally haven't had a purchase from a retail establishment not fit our home (we usually research far too much in advance for that). Although that isn't to say we haven't been 100% right on all of our auction finds. There have been several purchases that have been horribly wrong. There have been couches that once returned home, were shedding all of their foam and needed more than upholstery, pieces that were a few inches too long or too short and worst of all... one's that had beautiful lines but had..... smells...that just wouldn't go away.
Leave us a note below and tell us what purchase just didn't work out for your home!
