Hello, has anyone out there ever purchased a stone garden bench? A real stone one, rather than reconstituted stone.... I was at a local reclamation yard today (albeit a fancy one behind a local garden centre) and I spotted a cute little stone bench. It didn't have a price tag on. It looked roughly cut, which is what I prefer. Just three blocks of stone that were just the right size to make a bench. I thought to myself, "if they tell me it's priced at 60 quid, I'll offer them 50"......
I nearly fell over when the chap said it's £395!
He told me all about how it had been put together, and how rare stone is...but still, £395?!
If I found a stone mason, do you reckon I could get one out together for a better price...or should I just 'dream on'!?
