February 22, 2009The Miracle That Is Craigslist
I love Craigslist. Being new to the world of Mid-Century collecting, I suddenly find myself in need of EVERYTHING. Luckily, my love of thrifting should enable me, over time, to accumulate the things I want at great prices. But it is the “over time” part that bugs me. I hate being patient! Even if I can’t get everything I want immediately (did I mention I am a terribly, terribly impatient person?) I can still keep track of everything currently out there in my area with Craigslist.
Here is a little mid-century eye candy!
Here is a cute Mid-Century Bar – wood and leather!- if you are in the Michigan area, $175 takes it away. We already have a great bar, but this one is so cute.
Listing is here.
And this fabulous dining room set!If anyone is in the Chicago area, you should pick this one up. This is the info from the listing : Made for the Johnson Furniture Company in Michigan in the 50’s. Set includes 6 chairs, oval pedestal table with 2 18 inch leaves, buffet and mirror lined, glass shelved china cabinet. Also co-ordinating double sided server cart on large gold wheels.
This was my personal favorite for the day. This is exactly (EXACTLY) what I am looking for to fill the dining area in our kitch, but $1500 is a little too steep for me.
