Yeah, it was the color -- the "Antique Stain" in only available on one  
of the pieces, now, and it's not a bookcase.  Jay and Sue are in the  
same boat -- they started putting together a new entertainment center  
when they stopped being able to get the color.

On the subject of office furniture places:  Wiat turned me on to one  
out his direction that sells pieces sold by closing offices -- most  
are in great shape, and I got an office chair (a good one, in better  
shape than most of the stuff at Office Depot) for $5!  You might want  
to try that avenue.
