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.

I love these arm rests! The color of the fabric is pretty great as well. Only thing is I’d like to see it in person to check out that chair back.
The seller is also selling another chair that looks like it may need loving hands. Chairs are selling each for 65.00 and both for a hundred.

Craigslist: Dresser 125.00: Citrus Heights

24 Oct

Oh how I fancy dressers with mirrors. So many functions it can take on! Also the seller was clever enough to be able to take a photo of the mirror without being in the mirror (did that make sense?). That is crafty:

“This is one sharp looking and well made dresser. Purchased in 1970 from Montgomery Ward, it’s been very well taken care of ever since. It’s constructed of thick, solid wood, and made by Style House Exclusive. The mirror screws into the back. The drawers slide easily and are tongue in groove. This chest of drawers measures 52″ long, 30″ tall, and 18″ deep”

Soft yellow and white dresser set. It’s selling for 50.00 in Castro Valley Hills by Lake Chabo. I guess you might want to hurry and check out the original post if your into it. Seller is very adamant that this thing will not last long. And this seller is prolly right. 50?! (PS. I am not sure if that’s actually wood or not…so if you’re making a trip out there…maybe you wanna ask?)

Maybe I am alone on this one. Old salon chair though has me interest.

Nah but this couch looks like it has lotsa potential. And is priced pretty decently for uh today’s times.
