Thrifting: Berkeley, Oakland, and Vallejo (Part One)

16 Nov


I finally got a Saturday off. Serene doesn’t get to go thrifting with us  very often, so we all hopped on the opportunity of group thrift-scoring. We decided we should check out the East Bay. Starting off in Berkeley, then going to Oakland and working our way down. Coffee was a must.

Oh and breakfast.

Weekend Excursions: Bay Area

12 Nov

I say, we may be taking a day trip to the bay. Oakland is where we’d like to drive, where hopefully we’d arrive to thrift stores that were alive with awesome mid century treasures. That would be a pleasure.

Golly, I sure am excited. Can you recommend any good thrift stores in or near Oakland?

Here are some good lookin’ things that you can check out if you’ll also be in or around the bay area:

Walnut dresser – $79 bucks-Vallejo (original post)

Slat bench – $250 – Glen Park (original post)

This person seems to have been a hoarder. See those blonde end tables and the dresser? They can be viewed at this Aptos estate sale (original post)

Rose would love this. I’m not sure how much it is, but it can be found in Berkeley. (Original post)

Hanging lamp – $145 – San Rafael (original post)

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.

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

Sale Away: Yay Area.

14 Oct

Serene has been sending me eye candy like this all evening and I am very into it.

If you happen to be heading to the bay this weekend, try to stop by these yard sales:

This 1960’s estate sale is in Berkeley. They seem to have lots of blonde furniture, and I’m really lovin’ that compact formica dinette. original post)

 

This is the sale I am most excited about. Based on the photos, they seem to have a little somethin’ from the each of the big names (Saarinen, Eames, etc). I am completely sad that I won’t be able to make it but if you can take photos of all the madness, that would be awesome! I’m sure people are camping out for this one. (original post)

Craigslist: Steelcase Couch and Chair set, Oakland

6 Sep

OH HEY DUDES. Do you like sitting on ice blocks in the winter time? How about getting stuck to your furniture in the summer and having swamp-ass? Then check these stone cold foxes.

(Original Post) Three Steelcase pieces from 1974: a three-cushion sofa, matching side chair, and coordinating adjustable desk chair. The lines are crisp and tailored, the scale small enough to work in moderate-size rooms, but big enough to stretch out in. All three are upholstered in original tangerine vinyl in good condition, with matte-finish metal frames on the sofa and side chair. The office chair has a back frame powder-coated in sage green, and a swivel base in shiny chrome, on casters.

Sofa: $495
Side chair: $295
Office chair: $145

I’m surprised to hear that this is original vinyl, and that they are all in such crisp condition. If I had the cash I’d buy this suckers straight up, they match with a Steelcase office chair we recently picked up from Craigslist for$75.00. Here you see my boyfriend demonstrating it’s ability to “max” and “relax.”
