November 5, 2010MCM Home Improvement: Traveling On The Craigslist Highway
By Sablemable aka Jan
The weather here in Michigan is rainy and cold and I feel so blue that I decided to do something that would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and make me think of something other than my aching bones.
So I jumped into my imaginary 1956 Mercury Monterey and headed around the USA and Canada looking for unique MCM goodies.
When Andrea did her post on re-upholstering a vintage baby high chair, I took a look around and found this hardwood beauty in Whittier, California for $55.00.
From Forest Hills, NY (Queens), a Danish buffet for $195.00.
From the Province of Alberta in Mt. Royal, southwestern Calgary, a Fifties exterior door with fantastic lites for $100.00!
Need some MCM exterior bricks? A seller in Bellvue, Washington is selling 2400 of them at $.50 a piece or 100 or more at $.10 a piece. These are from the Fifties. The bricks are leftovers, no mortar ever touched these babies.
Borrowing one of Sara’s favorite expressions: Me wants this desk!!!!!!!!! From Hatfield, Pennsylvania (Philly area) comes a modern wood desk from the Fifties for $140.00.
Looking for stainless steel wall ovens from 1951? A seller in Pasadena, California has a set for sale for $300.00.
For $99.00, you can buy a beautiful MCM lamp in Montreal, Quebec. Mais oui!
Finally, I almost choked when I saw this, but fainted instead. From Raleigh, North Carolina, a very vintage rattan set of furniture. The price? $3,000.00 but who cares? It’s worth every greenback! Don’t miss the side table next to the chair in the last photo!
