What condition is this gaucho in? I have one from our '72 (not original, but aftermarket) that we just took out (replaced with new mattress for daybed setup) that you can have for only the price of packing/shipping if you want it. But without knowing the condition on the other one I can't tell you if ours is any better or in worse condition than the one you are trying to get from Seattle. I will PM you my email and you can send a photo of the Seattle one so I can tell you if it's better than mine. Ours is just a bit rounded down on the front from sitting on it (fabric not worn), but if you are recovering it you could build it up a bit. (No stains, odor, etc) Do you have the supporting shelf that goes behind it? I have that too if you want it. It also comes with a filler piece that goes at the back when folded down. The only problem I see is that even if someone ships this to you early this next week, it will take almost a week to get it by normal ground shipping. Of course that is if you pay by a fast method such as Paypal (no e-check). I'm in SoCal.
I believe in paying it forward.
