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.

    We need a “craigslist’s best” for that lamp entry. Except saying that it makes hipsters jizz themselves makes me not want to buy it. God forbid I be considered a hipster.

    I agree. There is also the concern that if hip friends are visiting your house they may see this lamp and have an accident in your living-room. That would be an uncomfortable experience for everybody involved.. including the lamp.

    Rose – I just laughed so hard at the thought of that happening. How embarrassing that would be! They’re asking a lot for their lamp, I priced mine today and I’m taking it over to the antique mall tomorrow. :)

    How do you decide what you want in your home and what you’ll sell? I’d end up keeping everything if I had a house and a place or even a nook to put it :|

    That’s a good question. I’m battling with that topic right now. I usually try out everything in my house first and if it doesn’t work well … it goes!

    I really love that lamp but it is way too huge for my little home.
