Craigslist: A whole loot of it

29 Sep

Some body is getting rid of all their midcentury treasures! The side cabinet is going for 80 dollars, and sunburst wall clock is 125.

Set of 4 Modern Danish Chairs- 2 black seat, 2 brown seat
Will also sell individually for $20 each

I am in love with these chairs. Yeah yeah typical mid mod chairs blah blah but sir I urge you to consider why they are everyone’s favorite. That cute little circle at the top, the simple yet unique structure. You just cant go wrong with them.

Swooooooshhhhhh. Swiiiiiiiiish. “It’s like driving a jet plane a million times faster than it should go. woooooo weee.” <-ah hem. That is where this chair takes my mind. If I owned it I would probably spend way to much time sitting pretending to be a captain. It would be fun at first but then nothing would ever get done and my husband would get frustrated.

I’ve been keeping my eye out for these since Toni picked one like this up at the thrift store in woodland. Poor dude needs a lampshade and new home. He’s being sold for 10 bucks and the lady can meet you in Placerville.

Craigslist: End table-South Natomas

29 Sep

I feel like blonde wood is under appreciated lately. I can understand it. It’s a hard color to work with sometimes. But look at that wood grain! Just shining and glossing, complimenting that gold and black in a very unusual way. I say unusual because more times than not when black is used to cover up some dings or just used in general with mid century pieces…it looks a lil wonky. I feel like it works with this piece though. 15 dollars takes it.

Thrifiting in woodland.

When Toni offered to take me to far off places around Sacramento, I was stoked. I’d been meaning to venture away but just could not muster the courage to go by my self. It was really great and I look forward to doing it again.
Heres a ton of pictures of good looking things we found so you dear readers can get stoked on taking the thrity minute drive to woodland too:

Has anyone else noticed how hard it is to find sewing tables with mid mod dapper legs? It interests me to find out why this is? Did woman decide they would stop sewing? Or were the sewing machine companies just stuck in their 1800’s look? ‘It’s going to make a come back Ed!’ Singer bought out Kent coffee furniture in the 60’s so you think they woulda hopped on board right? Maybe they did and the mid mod sewing tables are so precious that anyone who owns one is just very unwilling to let go.

Toni found this really cool watcha ma callit. It was first priced for ten bucks so reasonably there was some hesitancy on thee purchase. We later found out everything was 50 percent off! Five dollars still being a lot Toni took the chance and the lady at the register gave it to her for two dollar something (I dont remember the exact number I just remember thinking scoooore).

I plan to take off the solar tea and make a desert terrarium in this jar.
