Craigslist: Click click back to the internet

13 Oct

After that good will extravaganza I am pooped. Glad to get back to sitting and searching for good thangs rather than pulling a cart, weaving through older ladies, and pulling apart heaps of stuff for treasures.

“2 piece sectional mid century modern couch.Has been reupholstered in a period correct type fabric. Approx. 10′ long. Good condition.”

My little brother had a pinkish color room for the longest time. We would always tease him about it being pink and he’d stamp his feet hollering that pink is very different from salmon; his room was salmon and salmon is a man color! A color for the outdoors men. That poor kid, we really went to town on that room. Anyways I am not sure of the color of this couch it’s hard to tell from the pictures but it looks really close to the little kid version of my little brother’s room. And that makes me love it more. It’s going for 300.00 in Sacramento.

I got a big ol’ DOH on my forehead over these guys right here. Me and the dude had some sconces that were um apart of our apartment. Neither of us liked them very much (wispy leaf handle *shiver) so we just took them down and put some huge wooden birds over them. The problem with this is that those Martha Stewart (circa-early 90’s) sconces were the only source of light in our living room. Now instead of being a happy place of eating, YouTube watching, and socializing it is a dark cave were my husband hunches over a desk-EYES BULGING-click clacking at some designs mumbling things about kern under his breath. Imagine Sméagol but taller. Anyways these guys woulda gone great in there and I am slightly sad but still hopeful that they will go to a home of greatness. They’re being sold for 100 buckeroos in Sacramento.

“Nice vintage hanging modern style light. This is from a Berkley remodel so it’s not new and does show some signs of wear. It has an adjustable pull down cord. Great if you’re doing a vintage look in a kitchen, sun room, porch etc.”

More tears.

Hollywood regency usually gets an eyebrow raise from me. Just like anything in life (*meditation gong) it can be hit or miss. These things got pretty cute legs though…and they stackable!
The set is going for 50.00 in Sacramento.

This piece is older than what normally catches my eye, (1910~1920’s or so) but it’s in such amazing shape and a wonderful design, only $35.00! (Original Post)

MENGEL RETRO SIDE TABLE – $25 (SACRAMENTO)

No photo provided for this sucka, but if it’s anything Mengel from the Midcentury, might be worth asking for pics. The seller describes it as “MODERN VENTAGE SIE TABEL.” At first I thought “ooh, European!” but no, simply terrible spelling. $25.00 (Original Post)
