My mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer in November of 2006. As our focus project, we decided to redecorate and create "Happy House" in the home that we share. Our idea was to recreate a happy era, which for us, was the 70's. Retro, laid back, tropical and groovy! I searched for a long time and finally found the dining set of our dreams! A 1967 round formica table with 6 bucket chairs that swivel and on casters in mint condition. Wow!!! Well, we live in Corinth, TX and the furniture was in Satellite, FL. I won it on ebay and learned about Uship. I posted my request and received some interesting offers. In the mean time, I had a relative who lives about an hour away and helped me out by picking up the furniture and putting it in storage. In Corinth, my mom was just getting sicker and sicker. My outlet was furiously working on happy house. My dream was to bring her home from the hospital and surprise her with it. God had other plans, mom passed on September 21, 2007. Everything was in place, but the dining set was still missing. My budget was so firm and no one submitted a bid for my max offer. Then God sent Zippydelivery. The bid was well below my budget and I was so impressed with the service, communication and follow up. I received the set a day early. It is just beautiful and truly completed Happy House which has now been renamed "Happy Home". I know my mom is as thrilled as I am because it is everything we planned and more. That is how important this particular dining set was for me. Zippydelivery had no idea what this meant for me and I shared my story with Robbie after he delivered and set it up in my home. I am so grateful and will tell many people about my experience. Thank you for this site. There is no doubt in my mind that this was a "Match Made From Heaven"...thank you...I love and miss you Mom.
