August 18, 2011Thank You Craigslist For Metal Cabinets, Heywood Wakefield and Retro 50s Couches!
By Sara In AZ
I was just thinking the other day how completely awesome Craigslist really is. I have found some totally cool stuff on there and wanted to show y’all my finds. I have to say, you just never know what is going to show up on Craigslist.
This first find was not actually my find at all. Our blog mate Sablemable/Jan came across this and sent me the link because she knows I have a passion for anything pink from the 1950s! This was actually my very first purchase from Craigslist and it was like 1500 miles away!!! Eeks!!! Don’t ask me how we ever managed to get these cabinets all the way to AZ from Michigan – it’ all a blur now, but it did involve a small U-Haul, using the only free airline passes we have ever earned, and lots of begging. Ruth, you know I have been putting off doing a post on these – I promise that you will see a post on these cabinets in the next few weeks!
So, right after we bought the pink St Charles cabinets we bought these Aqua St Charles cabinets from a guy in Mesa. Mike was MUCH happier these were just in the next town over! Ruth, the post is coming!
I was FOREVER looking for a completely kitschy one armed 50s couch. I was flabbergasted when I came across this listing on Craigslist. I was in need of smelling salts after I read through the listing, when I came to Mike and I got over there as fast as we could! You can read all about my adventures with the couches HERE, HERE and HERE.
Well I have all the St Charles cabinets, how could I not get a set of pink ovens to go along with everything? You can read my post on the pink ovens HERE.
Y’all will definitely recognize my new Heywood Wakefield bed from my post a few weeks back.
And just what is this? Well, this is my most recent Craigslist find. Come back next Thursday for the scoop y’all!
Thanks for all the fun finds Craigslist!
