Craigslist: Heaps and heaps.

16 Nov

This desk looks as if it is missing some hardware (ya know how that goes). It’s being sold for 15 dollars in Rocklin. Walnut laminate finish for the crafty messy folk like me self.

I’ll confess that I am a lil (just a teensy bit) confused as to how this dresser transforms into so many different looks. I like this confusion. Here’s the seller’s bit that may clarify some things for some of you:

“Brown Saltman mid century dresser. This is quite a large piece. Designed by Paul Laslo. In good unrestored condition, does have a few blemishes as would be expected with a 50+ year old piece.”

It’s being sold for 300.00 in Sacramento.

Let us be done with one another:

“I have a vintage Eames Era surfboard/elliptical table. It does have a few minor chips on the sides. Not huge. The top is in very good condition. No big gouges or scratches. It does have scratches but they are very light and you can not really see them unless you are up close. Someone tried to spray paint the bases white. It wipes right off. I have added large pictures so you can see the chips. The table measures 60″ x 21″ x 10, which is actually smaller than the Original Eames for Herman Miller. This is really a great table for the money”

This guy is going for 125.00 in Cameron Park.

Next to wall shelving (and green couches), computer chairs are my most favorite thing to oogle.
This chair is going for 80.00 in Sacramento.

Dude. Look at that top. It just slightly curves up and then the other side comes down. You are the gorgeous tea cart! 225.00 in Tracy

    It looks as though on that cabinet the two doors slide all the way back and forth, but when placed at the far left and right are “closed” and the center panel are drawers that looks somewhat inset. I like that there are plastic containers on the left side, that’s very odd. I also like that the credenza looks like it is making an unhappy face all the time. >:|

    A reader has sent that credenza listing to me, saying that she went to go see it but it was too large for her home but that it was a fantastic quality piece. I misplaced the e-mail! Dear reader, apologies!

    Hahah. Unhappy face credenza. Thanks for the clarification Serene.

    $300 for the armchair?….a bit pricey….

    on an unrelated note, it’s amazing to me that you spend all this time looking for the coolest stuff on the ‘net, so that I DON’T HAVE TO!

    Someone on Ebay is selling the “Unhappy face credenza” for over 5K…saaaay what?! Yup.

    Too bad I don’t need another credenza, beside an item is worth what a person is willing to pay. $300 is very fair.

    Also, questioning the “vintage Eames Era surfboard” is it smaller than the original or is this the original size? I have never seen one so small and not very symmetrical. Kind of looks like a DIY. I dunno.

    Have a great day.

    Angie I think the seller states that eames surfboard is smaller. I am pretty sure it isnt the real deal. If the seller did make this themselves though that would be awesome!
