Craigslist: table lamp – $60

24 Oct

I tried the huge lamp thing and it really didn’t work in my home. Maybe it is because my whole home is only 833 sq ft and it took up practically my whole living room. Anyway, I really love huge 60’s lamps but unfortunately I can’t get one. Will you please buy this so that I can live vicariously through you? Thanks. (original post)

Craigslist: Wall unit 200.00: Sacramento

24 Oct


I am alil upset. It is my dream DRRREAAM to own a wall unit like this. I GOT 200.00 DOLLARS. But sadly no space. I think I’ll go have a smoke and mourn this one alone. If you happen to purchase this thing…I’d like to shake your hand and I promise that I will probably be less upset over this/will not make it extremely awkward (I JUST WANT TO LOOK YOU IN THE EYE!!!). Ok…goodbye for today.

Inspiration: Cozy Cabin Kitchen

24 Oct

Yesterday I visited with my boyfriend’s family at their shared cabin near Placerville. Wood paneling, a dead bat under the midcentury pink sofa, and a toasty fire to warm my arse. Now that’s my kind of cabin. The kitchen though was the zenith, the apex, the pinnacle. Original GE fridge and pristine double-oven stove with broiler and warming drawers. They are kept in amazing condition time-capsuled in this cabin.

Now that it’s officially rainy season, it’s time for me and mine to retreat inside and get in some serious cozy kitchen time. Soup and bread making, putting on the poundage whilst listening to some “phat beats.” We have updated modern appliances that came with our apartment, but I remember fondly the vintage stove from the old Victorian where I lived San Francisco. That thing worked double-time as a source of pizza and household heat. They’re amazing workhorses and look great  if you can afford to de-retrofit your kitchen.

One of the most popular brands available for old stoves are Wedgewood stoves. This brand was brought to my attention by our friend Jenn who is hoping to replace the broken stove in her house with one of these bad boys. I’ve seen them range in price from $150 – $700, most of which seem to be in good working condition but may be missing knobs or handles. Or, like the old stove I used to live with, had loose doors that would just FLOP open. This one is going for $500. (Original Post)

This General Electric fridge is working and going for $250.00. I feel like if you keep an eye out for working vintage fridges you can find some amazing deals. And even more amazing colors. (Original Post)

This hoosier has been listed for a month or more. I keep eye-ballin’ it – it’s just so wonky but interesting. It includes the drawers that aren’t featured in the photo. It is HUGE and looks perhaps 1940’s era? I tried researching Mobilux, but didn’t find any information. The seller thinks it may be French. This behemoth is selling for $150.00. It is not the sleekest of pieces to go in your slick atomic ranch, but definitely unique. (Original Post)

Craigslist: Coffee table 125.00: Merced

24 Oct


I dunno why…but boomerang coffee tables er kidney shape always remind me of anime. That illogical mental connection isn’t all that bad. I’ve been reminded now that I have to finish Cowboy Bepop and the weather today is perfect for such an activity. Thank you coffee table for being beautiful and kind to my anime needs.

Craigslist: Is that blue?

24 Oct

Leaves and leaves and leaves OH MY.
So I can’t really tell if this formica top is blue – or just reflecting off the aluminum door. But, I’m going to venture to say it is goddamned blue and incredible. Just know now, that the seller is asking $850 for the set. Here’s what they have to say:

My Parents received this custom designed dining table set as a wedding gift in 1961 to match their contemporary Danish furnishings. The set was designed by Paul McCobb of the Planner Group for the Winchendon Furniture Company in Winchendon Massachusetts. This is a perfect table for a small to medium size eat in kitchen or dining room. The Formica top is very durable and easy to clean and doesn’t scratch or stain like a wood top. The chairs are also solid wood with no cloth covering to stain or match to your decor.

The table is 100% original with its original Formica top and solid walnut base and legs that have been never been refinished, but are in very good to excellent condition. It has two leaves to take it from a round 4 seat table to oval 6 and oval 8 seat tables. The table legs are removable for transportation.

The four (4) chairs are also 100% original, have not been refinished, and are in very good to excellent condition. They are solid wood with metal on the bottom to protect the wood legs from wear. (Original Post)
