Weekend Excursions

12 Nov

“The original color was tourquoise, which leads me to believe it is 60’s retro chair, it is now red. Good condition, sturdy, no cracks or chips. Might be able to deliver”

This plastic bean is going for 15 dollars in Salinas. He appears to be very angry that he is no longer his original turquoise color.

Lunch Break

12 Nov

On my “freedom hour” I stopped by 57th Street to finally put money down on the couch Alan and I have been eyeballin’ in Cheryl’s booth. Here are some other treats she currently has back there. I’m pretty sure both the desk and the dresser are under $100.00 right now! As for the couch, well I had to get back to work and we’ll be picking it up tomorrow evening.

Weekend Excursions: Bay Area

12 Nov

I say, we may be taking a day trip to the bay. Oakland is where we’d like to drive, where hopefully we’d arrive to thrift stores that were alive with awesome mid century treasures. That would be a pleasure.

Golly, I sure am excited. Can you recommend any good thrift stores in or near Oakland?

Here are some good lookin’ things that you can check out if you’ll also be in or around the bay area:

Walnut dresser – $79 bucks-Vallejo (original post)

Slat bench – $250 – Glen Park (original post)

This person seems to have been a hoarder. See those blonde end tables and the dresser? They can be viewed at this Aptos estate sale (original post)

Rose would love this. I’m not sure how much it is, but it can be found in Berkeley. (Original post)

Hanging lamp – $145 – San Rafael (original post)

Cute chair – $175 – SF (original post)

Craigslist: Green Tweed.

12 Nov

$60 and comes with an ottoman apparently! I had to e-mail the seller, any mention of “green tweed” and I need to see it. Don’t know what era it’s actually from – but OH that green. (Original Post)
