The Miracle That Is Craigslist

I love Craigslist.  Being new to the world of Mid-Century collecting, I suddenly find myself in need of EVERYTHING. Luckily, my love of thrifting should enable me, over time, to accumulate the things I want at great prices.  But it is the “over time” part that bugs me.  I hate being patient!  Even if I can’t get everything I want immediately (did I mention I am a terribly, terribly impatient person?) I can still keep track of everything currently out there in my area with Craigslist.

Here is a little mid-century eye candy!

vintage-barHere is a cute Mid-Century Bar – wood and leather!- if you are in the Michigan area, $175 takes it away.  We already have a great bar, but this one is so cute.

Listing is here.



And this fabulous dining room set!vintage-sideboardIf anyone is in the Chicago area, you should pick this one up. This is the info from the listing : Made for the Johnson Furniture Company in Michigan in the 50’s. Set includes 6 chairs, oval pedestal table with 2 18 inch leaves, buffet and mirror lined, glass shelved china cabinet. Also co-ordinating double sided server cart on large gold wheels.



This was my personal favorite for the day.  This is exactly (EXACTLY) what I am looking for to fill the dining area in our kitch, but $1500 is a little too steep for me.
