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.
I can’t really tell what the design in, but the colors on these three eggy pieces are great! Would be an awesome addition to yo’ wall. $60.00 for all, San Leandro. (Original Post)
Coming at you from a very tungsten lit home! This $45.00 bench from Berkeley! (Original Post)
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.
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.
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.
“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.
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.

This orange! I am trying to think of some examples that these movie seats could offer a person. Let’s see: Home theater, personal love seat, porch seating…that’s all I got. OH wait. How bout just it being a great color and thee little space because it folds into itself?

Doesnt this make you wonder what beautiful things there are to be found in vacaville?
“We are selling our beloved vintage green couch. I got this in San Diego and moved it all the way here and the time has come to get rid of it :( It has 2 small problems that anyone able to put a button on can fix probably . I just never have. There is a small button popping out on the sidearm, and the a zipper under the cushion needs fixing. But can’t see it from looking at it.”
