Errand run in NYC
November 14, 2006 6:21 PM

I need someone to visit the Fritz Hansen showroom at 22 Wooster Street in NYC and purchase some small parts for some chairs (they'd fit in your coat pocket--I need 15 of them and I think they're about $1 to $1.50 each). Then, I need them shipped to me in Toronto.

For a month I've been trying to get a store in Toronto (called Plan B, who is an official distributor) to bring them in for me but they keep making excuses about the delay after promising me a 3 day turnaround. I've called the showroom direct and keep getting a machine--they don't call me back. It's driving me a bit bonkers as I can't have anyone over for dinner till I get the parts (the chairs aren't sturdy).

I'm not even sure the store will sell as it's officially just a showroom, but I am told that that's where Plan B has been placing its order.

So, if you're close to that address and can pop in between 9 and 5 M-F and try and get them for me, I'd pay you for your time. I have no idea how much to pay for such a job because I don't know if you can just walk in and buy them or if you have to sweet talk and cajole them into selling to you--but am completely open to hearing a suggestion in email and can paypal the agreed upon price (and shipping/part cost, or course) in US$.
