I love Craigslist. When I’m bored, I will sit on my laptop watching TV and sift through pages of furniture in Los Angeles and also in different cities to see the various items that are for sale. Deals or not or not here are a couple of things I spotted:
OMG! I feel like Rachel Zoe – BANANA’s…love these lamps but not the price tag! Italian blanc de chine bird lamps from the 1960's selling for $749.00 cash. If anyone wants to buy me a belated birthday or Christmas gift feel free LOL!
What not to buy. I find some listings hysterical. Listed as pair or rocking barrel chairs classic vintage. Word to readers, these are not classic and they are not vintage…they are what not to buy. While my boyfriend would love these in our house because they are oversized, swivel and likely recline, you will never see these in our house.
These leather chairs are listed for $150.00 for the pair are a steal. I would buy these in a minute if I had room. I like that they are worn and classic. They would look great in a library, a reading area, or in a winter home in the mountains. I picture them with a plaid wool blanket thrown over them. Love that they are broken in. Reminds me of something Nate Berkus would have in his house.
I am looking for a few items. Things currently on my list are a unique low chest of drawers for our front porch entry, a Cal King headboard that I can paint and/or a fabric one, tall lamps, and a few other items. I love poking around on Craigslist, it’s addicting. I even have my neighbor and friends doing it. What are your best finds on craigslist? My best buy was our slipper chairs in my living room that are still begging to be reupholstered.
Are you a Craigslist shopper?
