Cheap Furniture in Philly?

To my Philadelphia area friends, does anyone know of any good new or used furniture stores where the price range is more reasonable? We'd like to get a new couch (or at least new to us), but we don't have a huge budget for it. We'd also consider a good fouton, especially one that can turn into a bed for overnight guests.

Because I Promised the Nice Obama Volunteer

I ran into a very nice Obama volunteer from Delaware while walking my doggie, Una. After a brief discussion about the election, he asked me if I'd have time to volunteer tomorrow. I said, "Well, actually, my job is is doing transcripts of cable news programs, so I'll be busier than usual."

But I told him I'd put some helpful links on my LiveJournal for the benefit of my friends list. Those of you who are American and want a quick guide to some helpful voting sites, click away.

Mod Halloween

I must confess, I usually plan my Halloween costume months in advance, but this time I simply didn't have the opportunity. So a couple weeks before the event, I went to the Salvation Army, on an unseasonably stuffy day, and browsed the racks until I found something that sparked an idea. The process was sort of like this: "Hmm, with the right accessories, this dress could look Mod."
