the craig- A. T. L.

sometimes you really can find some good shit...

1. regency chinoiserie tole chandelier: $275 -a bit pricey but have you see what some of these go for on ebay and other places?? plus, it's craigslist...talk that shit down! this is great white but could take just about any color and look amaze..




2. 4 vintage thonet bentwood chairs!! - $200 for all 4! whhhhaaa??? these are classic chairs. perfect for a breakfast nook. they are asking to be painted turquoise or acid yellow.


3. antique settee and chair-$300. i'll bet you could get 200 for the settee and 100 for the chair if you split them up. they have great lines. but really that settee needs a little black and white striped upholstery love and she will sing.



4. pair of brass restoration hardware sconces- $50!! for real these are mine!


5. 2 leaning bookcases- $150 for both. i think these would be great in a walk in closet for scarves, purses, or even your shoes.



6. settee- $210. love this. hard to tell if the upholstery is dirty or just ugly..or maybe in person it's not so bad. either way it's a great price, although really with extra 10 bucks? what's that all about? you could always upholster it or have it cleaned. i want a proper entry so that i can put a settee in it!


7. D'OH! crystal chandelier- $135!!! that price is sick folks. i want want want this soooo bad. for my middle room, my living room, my bedroom, my bathroom, my daughter's room and my hall.


8. mid century coffee table- $40! it's hard to tell if this is really shit or not..but i though the shape was unique and the pattern on top appears chevron-ish. for 40 bucks you could so buy it and paint it if the finish was bad.


9. victorian couch- $250. again, you could probably get it for 2 and with the right fabric this is a showstopper. look at those lines in the 2nd picture..gorgeous!



10. draper-era desk- $60!! this obviously needs refinishing and new hardware. yes, you could paint it too. how about black with shiny gold hardware? or if it were me i would totally let a pro strip it and then stain it to a pretty wood finish. for 60 bucks you could do anything..



11. wrought iron garden chairs (4)- $250. these are too awesome for words. i want them in my (pretend) garden. now.


hope you enjoyed my finds!! and don't forget to visit susie and her finds, she is great at spotting mid century treasures.

Craig seduces me too, however after being badly burned by my other lover Ebay recently...I am hesitant to commit again.
p.s. I think I need to see Nicholas BB the Groomsman. I think that would be just what I need today. And anyday, really.

Amazing!!! I want it all! If only the Craigslist here had things that weren't Ikea Ikea Ikea...sigh. I'll just have to live vicariously though the Atlanta list for the time being! XO

Oh my! You found so many great deals! I need to take more time on my craigslist. I just get so frustrated with the amount that I normally just give-up!

Loved your friend Sarah on the office! She did a great job!

LOVE the leaning bookcases and the vintage thonet bentwood chairs. I wish I had room in our apartment for 14 more pieces of furniture!

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Damn! Between the tole chandy, thonet chairs, and leaning bookcases - half of my need/want list is taken care of!
Suh-weet finds and idears!

I swear, you and Susie have to stop with these craigslist posts. I can only resist temptation for so long . . .

Love the Tole Chandelier - I've collected a few of these from flea markets and I love them! The settee is pretty great too - your Craigslist is amazing! Would love to see that desk transformed!

Ahem, I'm kind of ashamed to admit this, but my wife found that same light-thing in the first photo on either ebay or C-list here in Nashville. It's hanging above a table right behind me. You should see my man cave though, it's got a cool tv and a fridge with wine and beer hidden in a cabinet. THAT, my friends is good design.

Mmmm, now if you could just locate a great vintage Saarinen tulip table, the bentwood chairs + the tole chandy+ the $210 settee reupholstered would make a mighty fine eating area. Nice sleuthing Jenny!

Rachel said...

These are all great!
Our craigslist doesn't have such cool stuff, I'm telling you!

Have a great weekend!

I found something awesome this week and I'll tell you about it once I receive it. I'm very excited.
