San Francisco: MCMF dealer.

31 Oct

Looking at the Bay Area craigslist I came across Midcentury Modern Finds out of San Francisco. They have an incredibly extensive collection, and VERY REASONABLE prices! Also a well-organized and easy to navigate website with full descriptions of every piece (as a web designer, I appreciate these things). Everything looks in great condition and is priced to sell. Here are some of my favorite pieces they currently have available.

$180.00 Vintage Mid-Century Star Burst Clock by United with Battery Mechanism

$200.00 Vintage Mid-Century Knoll Saarinen Executive Task Chair


$150.00 Mid-Century Rocker

$700.00 Vintage Mid-Century Modern Wall Unit

Around Town: Off the wire!

31 Oct

My boyfriend was running to different thrift stores in search of the perfect accessories for his Lil’ Wayne costume and sent me photos of some rad finds.

This desk was sold, but was $15.00 at the SPCA Thrift Store!

This shelf was being sold for 65.00 at the Salvation Army on 16th Street. Was not sold as of yesterday afternoon. Everything was 50% off, maybe it’s a weekend sale that could still be going on now!

Craigslist: Credenza 100.00-Sacramento

31 Oct


Walnut credenza looks like a big hunk of wood.
Pictures on craigslist though can sometimes be decieving. Like I imagine that teak wall unit I posted awhile ago (for 200.00 *LE SIGH) was gorgeous despite the grainy photo. If you got the time and something looks potential go check it out. There aint no harm in a no thanks.

Craigslist: DUX side table 100.00-Sacramento

Ever since Serene got that great looking Dux chair my eyes pop out and ears perk up when the name comes my way. These folks made some gorgeous crap dudes.
Not only does this table appear to be in some magnificent looking wood it is also the shape of pizza. Even better than pizza-Babybel cheese.

Craigslist: Things in far off places

30 Oct


Hey there bootifull orange chair with mahogany (make the body drop) armrests! I think you and I belong together! Apparently the seller is getting rid of lots of things:

“I’ve acquired a house full of great quality mid-century furniture and need to liquidate by end of month. I have two nice bedroom sets, book cases, dining room credenza, an electric typewriter, mirrored coffee table, wall mount lamps, misc household stuff. This ad is for the incredible orange recliner. It’s fabric is a heavy tweed but soft and comfortable. It has mahogany wood arms and feet, high back but lower to the ground seat. It measures 43″ tall, 32″ deep and 32” wide. In beautiful condition, especially those wood arms. Clean, no odors or stains. Asking $75. “

Check out the original post and look for the city Tehachapi, Ca for any of her other stuff.

This one right here might just be a personal fancy. I went to a high school that was mainly outdoors and admin was seriously concerned about it’s students being able to store things on campus. There was a lot of kids at my school with turtle backs and back problem fates. On top of having to carry all my necessary text books I felt it necessary to travel with the essentials:
2 sketch books. One for art class another for doodles and graff & Dance.
Paint brush.
A handful of Prisma Markers.
Borrowed Mangas-Fruit basket and FLCL.
Kaffir boy in America.
Phone and Make up<—for SPRUCING UP.
And a big pack of handmade stencils. Just in case any art activity/a fellow comrade's backpack needed any sprucing. This pack of stencils was actually one of the heaviest things I dragged around with my everyday.
A locker would have helped me out some…or encouraged me to find more crap to carry around with me.
