Craigslist: Stereo cabinet-Redding

1 Oct


15 dollars.
Awhile back me and a friend were talking record players. He said ‘there’s no real point in buying one if there isn’t a needle. The needle is the thing that gets everything going and if it aint there you’re gonna have a heck of a time finding one’. You could of course buy a stereo cabinet and just use it as a (hopefully cheap) credenza. If you got a big place an storage isn’t an issue-HAY. But if you’re like me with a teeny space with very valuable nook and crannies you’d probably want your record player to work or at least double as something to put all your junk in. Here’s a bit from the seller:

Early 60’s stereo cabinet dark pecan or walnut, with tuner and turntable in good working condition …extra needle included.

I think this means…you not only get one working needle but two! Check out the original post for the seller’s number for some needle clarification.

Craigslist: Hairpin Leg Plant Stands

1 Oct


(Original Post)These are being sold for $40.00 (Are there two? One? It says “stands” so I’m assuming a set) in Natomas. Looks like the same credenza being sold here in the photo too. $40.00 is a bit much for a plant stand, but if there’s two, that’s a tad more reasonable. Differing heights, even better. Especially if there’s a door you got in desperate need of framing with some tasty plants.

I lurve a good plant stand..

Craigslist: Storage-Fair Oaks

I dig interesting functional designs but there’s something really nice about a piece that is just simple and made with a really good looking wood like walnut. This storage cabinet is going for 50 dollars.

Eames Lounge chair debut: It caused quite a flurry

1 Oct



Halloween is coming up. I’ve never really been one to dress up or celebrate but this year I thought living a little would probably be an ok experience. I’ve been researching a lil every day about the Eames duo, surprisingly there doesn’t seem to be very many photographs of them (anyone got the goods?). So I am hesitant. Not really sure if I could get the outfit right and all that. When I saw this video I starting to dig the idea of being Ray for a night a lot more. Check her out here dudes! She get’s all shy and you think ‘you were a part of design history?! You are shy too?!’ The humility she shows in this video makes me love the Eames’ designs ten times better.
On top of all that I think the host is pretty funny. She’s carrying on a conversation with Charles and is looking directly at the camera staying clear away from addressing Charles with anything else but words (when did television decide that was a dumb way to interview someone? The 90’s?). Charles, even though I could imagine that being terribly awkward, holds it down like a gentleman keeping eye contact during most of their conversation.

Craigslist: HE’S BACK!

Everybody’s favorite seller of these “jetson age chairs” has a new listing up – but surprisingly doesn’t have an entire ridiculous description of how said item would look aboard the Starship Enterprise. Also this TV could actually be a great display piece – you know, if you have your mock “living room” that nobody goes into and is basically a museum that people aren’t allowed to touch. Lest a nun come out of the walls and slap your wrists. What? INCOMING CAPSLOCK!
I HAVE A RARE TWO TONE VINTAGE TV IN VERY NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION. THE MAKE IS ADMIRAL PICTURE LIGHTS UP BUT IS SNOWY COULD BE A RECPTION ISSUE I AM NOT VERSED IN THIS SO THAT IS JUST A GUESS SOUND WORKS FINE BODY HJAS ORIGINAL PAINT THIS WOULD BE GREAT FOR A DISPLAY PIECE IN YOUR MID CENTURY DECOR SOLD AS IS 510-333-3650 days (Original Post)

Once again our dear seller has not listed the price of the item. Being as he is possibly insane – this could work for or against us.

If you have.. THIS living room. Just tuck it away next to that plant back there..
