Happy Campers: Kristin’s Big Mustard Couch

29 Feb

I posted this terribly confusing photo of a couch for sale at $40 in Citrus Heights, and dagganit! Kristin has been looking for, as she said, “a big long mustard yellow couch” for over a year now. So she swooped it up!

Here it is in its new home :D Lookin’ good, ma’am. Lookin’ reeeal good n’ mustardy.

I like that this guy is all these different type of storages.

Title to the post says UNIQUE TABLES. I agree. They also look like they can double or that they are stools?

Seems tiny and efficient.

Swivel table is so neat!

1800.00 in Modesto.
Once upon a time I found one of these guys for like a 100 or whatever here in Sacramento. I called the seller and told him I’d call him back in like an hour to go pick it up. When I called him back he had just sold it and said that he thought I wasn’t interested. I felt like ‘one day I am gonna look back on this and laugh.’ It’s been a year and I am so not laughing.

150.00 in Eldorado Hills
Yeah yeah. I got a vision guys.

500.00 in Folsom

15.00 in Auburn.
If Auburn wasn’t so far I’d go pick these guys up right now!

PRICEY – but pretty. $600.00 danish dining set in Modesto.

Can’t believe this hasn’t been bought yet! $50.00 nighstand.

worst. picture. ever. But, it’s $40.00 and could possibly be amazing! Big giant great condition yellow couch! Big RED from Townhouse, I’m lookin’ at you.

$100.00 in good condition, no tears, and only needs the little foot metal piece under one of the legs. C’mon, that’s totally worth it. Just clean up that wood with walnut restor-a-finish.

Mix and match

215.00 in Oakland
I am doing a post with some mixing and matching. Get ready mimomito. Things might seem like they are getting weird.

25.00 in San Rafeal
Olly olly smokes. 4 FOR 25? Is this even real?
Basically free in Pacific Heights
This guy is in need of a whole lotta love! LOTS. Seller doesn’t state a price in the post. Just states that it is practically free and would hate to see it thrown on the curb. If your into projects…this may be for you.
50.00 in Richmond
There are two chairs in the post. I am not too clear over whether or not it is 50 each or 50 for the both.
245.00 in Martinez
Teak serving cart that does a total transformation. That black top is super fancy and I want to have it.

300.00 in Lincoln
Arrite guys. Arrite. I might be loosing some of you here. You might be scratching your heads saying to yourself ‘this is midcentury? I thought that is what you do?’ Yeah I know. Cool it for a second though OK. Tis not everyone’s cup of tea…but maybe there is some of you out there who enjoy mixing and matching. Maybe someone here is super adventerous I DUNNO. I just think they look really neat and they are made out of brass and marble. Which also probably means these guys are some heavy ass sh…stuff.

80.00 in Alameda
It is childsize!
250.00 in Oakland
Ah snap. Kilim runner lookin’ good.

I found a bed in this shape the other day that was in brass. I thought too long on it and now it is gone. Now I am back on the prowl. This bed would be neat for guests though cuz it folds up and can be tucked under stuff or stuffed in tiny cracks.

I am finna loose some of you on these 60’s wicker chairs. Hold up. Dont close the browser yet. Take another look. I know there is someone out there who see’s the potential boss these chairs could be? Right? Is it just me? AH HAWL. Ok. Well anyways, I’d put these dudes in my yard if I had one. Then I’d have my husband fan me with banana leaves whilst I pat,pat my hypothetical pet Siamese cat, named Elvis.
It would be pretty cool for a lil bit.

Westinghouse washer and dryer in Reno

11 Feb

This washer/dryer combo is from an estate in the Reno area and apparently works perfectly. Seller isn’t being exactly.. clear as to what he wants for the price, but it made me want to look through old Westinghouse ads. Old colorized appliance ads just warm my guts! Oh, and here’s the original craigslist post for you to peruse.

The Westinghouse floor fan. The tray flips upside down to store, and the flip-side is a soft footstool. I love those gold-rimmed glasses and the bright red butterfly chair!

“Westinghouse Roll-out Wash Well.” I love the clean simplicity of everything in this photo – EXCEPT the contents of the wash well! It looks like a trash compactor, and perhaps little Ethel should get her hands out of there.

Washer and dryer combo – but what is this contraption to the left? Well, apparently it’s an ice box with “Cold injector.”

Friday wrap-up!
