Bay Area Under 120.00

6 Dec

Things seem a lil tough in the city these days. You got six other roomates, super high rent, and possibly an awful commute. Ya live in an awesome city and do what you gotta to make it. I feel for you dudes. Truly I do. So I dug through Craigslist for stuff around your area for 120.00 and under. I will be attempting to continue to do these weekly. Iz gonna take a lil bit more research to make it as efficient for yall as possible but I shall try. I KNOW THE STRUGGLE GUYS! Shizz is rough out there okaaaay.

Around the house: Din din

19 Nov

Hey Mimomito! This is Rose. Here is a couple photographs of stuff going on around my sweet pad.
Ye ye.

For three years I have eaten dinner on our coffee table. We have never had enough space to have an actual area designated for getting your grub on. I can admit that this is probably because I have just said it was not possible but would rather have had other things instead. Like a huge desk. Why did we need a desk that took up most of our house. Who knows?! It seemed like a good idea at the time.

We have enough room now that we don’t gotta compromise any of
our other luxuries, like our huge redwood slab desk.

It seems by that small silly little coffee cup stage that we may actually use this table
to wine and dine. Not true guys. Iz all a farce. Still doing the coffee table jam.


We’ve got this neat little built in that I use for a meager bar.


ALSO PEEP THIS. Super juiced on our set of Russel Wright’s American modern stuff. I am not usually a person who is drawn to brighter colors but I think these are so so bootiful. They were a late wedding gift my Grandmother gave me. She has been collecting this set for nearly twenty years.

It was neat to hear her story pre ebay days.
I can only imagine how stoked she musta been each time she happen to come across a couple of pieces back then.
Super grateful to her for this gift. I will cherish these precious beans for a long long time.

16.00 Dont forget wrapping paper! I use to think sunday comic wrap jobs were a ok. But no. They are not. From years of white elephant exchanges with coworkers I learned that the craptastic 40 oz paper bags I used made people not want my gift. No matter how cool the thing that rests uncomfortably in those damp crinkly walls of paper is. Don’t do it guis.

On the internets: Acapulco Chair

9 Nov

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Acapulco chair is pretty much a mystery. Nobody knows who the designer is, there are several different stories out there on how it got to America, and there seems to be different opinions floatin’ around over who’s in charge in pushing these guys out.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The only thing people can agree on is how magnificent it looks, that it was made sometime during the 50’s in Acapulco, and that it is made using ancient Mayan weaving techniques.

Ocho has many different color and styles to choose from. Even this nifty leather dood.

‘Midcentury rocking’ yes indeed.

I’m particularly fond of the multi colored ones! The colors, the mix of Mexican culture, annnnnd a flare of midcentury is a perfect combination to make me gaga. It’s like someone picked my brain and came up with the perfect chair for me. Then there is this
