You could store extra linens or blankets in that thing….er magazines
Sorry this post has gotten to you so late. I am that last minute christmas shopper er maker…I’ve been spending the past two weeks with my husband making and wrapping christmas gifts:
We made pillows. Alright alright. Back to thrifting. So I’ll admit that a lot of the adventures in thrifting are determined by craigslist listings. I’ve seen some sweet stuff for cheap in modesto the past month or so so I figure we should go check it out. See what thrifting is like. This weekend me and my husband also went to Salinas to visit his folks for the holidays. We spent this monday in that bay thrifting. So I’ll be posting two thrifting adventures for this week :] Some of the thrift stores dont have reviews on the interwebs so heres a listing of some in Modesto.
Started off at the goodwill.
Not sure of the age, but am guessing it to be from the 60s or 70s. The chair has no damage to speak of and has the original “Charles Eames, Herman Miller made in Zeeland Michigan” sticker underneath. (Original Post)
Vintage GE Deluxe fridge. Seller suggests it for your man cave. But what about lady caves? $200.00 (Original Post)
$100.00 danish style arm chair that needs some reupholstery work. Nice shape to it! (Original Post)

40.00 for the set of chairs in Inner Sunset. Whenever me and Serene are looking at craigslist together we always comment on these guy’s legs looking like horses galloping.
CUTEST LIL STEEL TANKER EVER!
95.00 on Van Ness.
Personally I feel like 200.00 for this bad boy is a steal. Look at that shape, that wood, that goodness!
This guy is waiting for you in San Leandro.
I really really love rocking chairs. This one is being sold for 895.00 in Berkely.
Who’s got an entry hall?! This thing would look great there.
