    I am officially an idiot for doing this but here goes.

    I NEED a IKEA Benjamin stool, like the one pictured. Long story.

    Cant find one on ebay, or amazon, or craigslist. Its available in the UK, but shipping will kill me.

    If you have one you are willing to sell in the US or Canada, please PM me.

    Didn't put it in the wanted section because its not your usual IM want. Mods feel free to move it.

    It really does sound like the missus is behind this request!

    Hopefully you can find someone to help you, because same a David I'm in the UK so that doesn't help too much.

    Don't leave them at the bus stop either, even if it is raining.

    That is what I love about this place, its like having minions

    Thank you all, I have e-mailed the advertisers to inquire further.

    Saved my ass you did.

    Indeed they did. Bastards.

    He won't ship it to me.

    What will you charge me to go get it, box it up, and mail it to me in TEXAS?

    They retailed for $20, I paid $5 for the one I had at a garage sale.

    This is looking like it is going to be a 50.00 mistake. I've been in those shoes.

    The only one I saw on CL was someone in Houston looking for one, I assume it was the OP so good find there, Duffers.

    I use the stool when I do work onsite. rewiring switches. My wife was picking me up, and the bus stop benches were wet because it was raining. So I sat under the awning on the stool, then when she drove up, I threw my laptop and tool bags in the trunk, hopped inside the car and off we went.

    Its about 18 inches tall and deep, and 24 wide.

    If you will just get it for me, I will send you the box to ship it in and the money plus something for your trouble.

    I can paypal the cash to you.

    zip is 77078, and it can come to me by horseback if it's cheaper.

    @dakarois - FWIW, always take a 'favor in the bank' over cash ;)

    Did it get stolen or ruined? I searched the entire internet for that damn stool, and learned that people treat it like their prized possession. Perhaps one should not have taken it outside in the rain. lol

    They were very popular, and people do not get rid of them much.

    I took it to I work, I just left it in the rain....although my wife agrees with you.

    I didn't realize that I left it for a couple of days, and of course it was gone when we went back to see if it was still there.

    I hope some homeless person took it and now has a little comfort in their lives, as opposed to someone taking it home and not using it.

    Looks like its going to take a while to replace it though.

    Hope its not as hard as that stupid double measuring cup that tubberware sold. (the one with a dry measureing cup on one end and wet on the other)

    My wife loved it and I set it too close to the burner and melted it. I told my wife I would replace it, and she basically said "Uh-huh". When I went to order a new one they were no longer made.

    It took a 12 years to find one in a garage sale, and when I found it, the lady wanted $3 for it. I bought it and told here that she had no idea what I would have given for that measuring cup.

    We still have that measuring cup, and I will replace this stool before I die too.
