Joseph and Marilyn Marlin, members of DirectBuy of Cincinnati, have transformed their Centerville, Ohio, home with the help of the club. The Marlin family has upgraded everything from flooring to furniture, to bath accessories and much more, with no plan to slow up with their improvements yet.
“My husband and I joined DirectBuy back in 2006,” Marilyn said. “After being married by that time for 10 years, we made a decision to get rid of ‘his and her’ furniture and get ‘ours’.”
They first became acquainted with the club after Marilyn saw a DirectBuy ad on television and went to her local club to take part in an introductory presentation.
“My husband is always the skeptical one, so for him to say ‘Let's join’ after we listened to the introduction, I thought … this has to be good,” Marilyn says.
That year, the Marlin family was on a roll, purchasing a complete dining room set with a table, six chairs, two china bases and a china hutch. And they didn’t stop in the dining room: For the family room, they purchased laminate flooring (which they installed themselves), two leather reclining chairs, a dual reclining love seat to match, end tables and a coffee table. Finally, they repaired damage and replaced bathroom fixtures after a toilet sprung a leak in their half bath.
