courtney's miami craig

let me tell you, miami cragislist is like shopping at your awesome gay uncle's garage sale. in other words it was awesome and kinda easy. especially given what court was after.


"I'm looking for a more grown up, sexy version of the Hollywood regency shtick...less palm beach more sexy. I want this to be a bachelorette cave that makes people want to have a gin and tonic in their best cocktail dresses and be scandalous later. Carrie in SATCs new apt with a Kara Mann edginess. U dig? Thx xo."

i used the images of carrie bradshaw's new apartment and a sexy kara mann bedroom as inspiration. here and here.

i found a lot of stuff that i know court will love and also some things that i thought were really cool and would soften up the modern edge she seeks.


silver leaf dresser- $650 waaay too much money but you could offer half. it is very awesome for you.


heart shaped lucite stool- $85 offer 50. love.

red rattan etagere- $35 great price. not sure how sturdy it is and it could be painted.


mid century lucite and brass table- $125. this is spectacular. offer 85.

hollywood regency king headboard- $100. areyoukiddingme???? i want this. i have a king bed.


pair of lucite end tables- $350. GORGEOUS! offer way less. but i would pay 300.


victorian chair- $145. very sexy if painted shiny black and wearing some gorgeous fabric. pair it with the chair below painted the same but with a different yet similar fabric then throw that brass and lucite table between them. and then consider your pants pooped.


victorian chair- $150. pair it with the above for that sexy edgy kara mann vibe. your new sitting area=dumbsville.



brass and glass bar cart
- $159. yes. you get. offer 100.



(above) 4 black lacquer chairs- $160. great for extra seating.


lucite and glass table- $300. sexballs city.



4 regency chairs- $300. offer less. these chairs are unbelievable.


2 peach/coral lamps with lucite base- $50. change the shades or don't. but these are very unique and super sexy against your black wall. peach is going to make a major comeback. wait and see.


faux horn pendant- $75. very cool in an entry or hallway.


lucite rolling stool- $100. offer 50. sorry about all the lucite but there was just so much good lucite!!! and obviously i don't intend for you to ge all of it!!


black lacquered nightstands (2)- $185 OBO. great lines.


black asian lacquer dresser- $125 pretty hot. great under a flatscreen.


vintage brass bamboo base floor lamp- $25 this is a great choice for that area by your bed that's too small for a proper nightstand. this just needs a new shade and some polishing up. super cool.


brass and glass etagere- $85 golden girls chic.


go forth and craig!

I want that fucking lucite and glass table!!!!! I would seriously tear my cubicle out of my office with a hatchet if it meant that I could use that as a desk instead. I would also tear out my cubicle with a hatchet if it meant that I simply would not longer have a cubicle.....
