This Week’s Mid-Century Craigslist Finds – Yellow Formica Table, 1960’s GE Fridge, A Pink Toilet & More

As always, some pretty sweet finds on Craigslist this week. These are all from Michigan, but feel free to add any vintage finds to the comments section, or email me finds at nopatternrequired at hotmail.com for possible posting!

The first is this great 1960’s GE fridge, complete with all the original glass trays.  Only $100, and the person selling it sounds like they are ready to deal! Sigh, if only Tom and I had a big enough car to haul things like this around in…

    OMG, great finds, Ruth! We have a tv like that only in blond. It was left behind when we bought a home in the city. Of course it doesn’t work anymore, but we’re trying to decide what to do with it (not to the dump, no way!).

    We’ve been looking for a fridge like that for half of forever! The ones around here always seem to be snapped up really quickly. Awesome finds!

    Are those the televisions that had the cool lamps that came with them? Does anyone know what I’m talking about ?

    Yeah Alex, I totally know what you are talking about. TV lamps are WAYYYY cool. I have a Flamingo TV lamp. They probably came with a bunch of different TV’s back then.

    man, if there were ever reasons to move to Michigan (or just anywhere in the midwest)!! those are great finds – we’re just not that lucky here in the Central Coast of California.

    Hey, Sara! I’ll save the tv project for one of my guest blogs!

    I love and adore and have to have the perfect tv lamp! I saw one exactly like Grandma had, but haven’t bought it yet.

    Should have kept Grandma’s!

    Hey, Inky! If only we had a lot of jobs here in Michigan, then everyone could come!!!!!!!!

    Hope you can see the light fixture in the eating area in the kitchen in the house we’re buying. As cool as I think it is, I’ll probably remove it. We have a hallway one that’s close in style.

    Neat light fixtures, Eldemila!!! What does the rest of your house look like? Send pictures, I would love to post them on the blog.

    Are you sure you want to take down the lamps? You can do some pretty awesome retro designs with the traditional 50’s style. Check out some posts on here and go to Retro Renovation for inspiration!

    Congrats on your new house! How exciting!
