Craig's List Roundup

I haven't done a craigslist post in a while, so I thought I would take a quick peek at what was there this morning.  There are a couple of cool finds, but nothing that made me drool, and there is a much junk that is so overpriced on there!  But these few items caught my eye, including the pretty pine dining room table above.
These could make nice accent chairs, or dining room table chairs, especially if you painted them a fun colour (or black would be nice).  And at $30 each, they are a pretty good deal.
This looks like a nice corner curio cabinet - I love corner cabinets because they make such good use of an awkward space.  Luckily we only really have one corner in our place!  At $275 this is a pretty good deal too.




This is a great 5 x 9 West Elm rug for only $75 - good deal if you have a room that can accomodate these colours.
Here's a pretty Charles Rennie Macintosh inspired stained glass window - there are two and are $95 each, and are apparently from a home in England.
Pretty carved screen could make a nice cover for anything you might want hidden or in an awkward room, or you could use it as a room divider.  I may be addicted to painting things now, but I think it would look nice painted!
OK, this could either be hideous or AMAZING, and I am leaning towards amazing.  3-seater sofa, covered in amazing pheasant fabric over down-filled cushions (that look to be in excellent condition) PLUS the accompanying club chair - for $60!  Total score, if you have the guts for this thing! Or even if you don't - this looks like quality furniture.  Look at the piping and coordinating fabrics on this chair - incredible.
It would look great paired with this fabulous brass magazine holder for $30 and the phone below for only $25!!  (I saw so many of those ordinary black rotary phone for over $100... this one is nicer and way cheaper.)
OK, that's all I got - I am off to try to accomplish something today!  I managed to sleep a solid TWELVE hours last night after a whirlwind weekend that included one of the best weddings I have ever seen and a 4-year-old's birthday party.  I was actually asleep before the boys - I fell asleep before dinner!  Wish I could say I awoke feeling refreshed and ready to do anything... but I think I could easily clock another 12 hours if I had the opportunity. :)

  7. Sometimes it is hard to know how to price things, but seriously, a telephone for $100??

  8. HAHA I agree - you would have to REALLY COMMIT to that scheme. Although for $60? It might be worth it just to see people's expression when they walked in...

  11. You know I never really thought to look on craigslist, I always go on Kijiji...I've been looking for a copper bucket for my fireplace for kindling and found at least 3 of them at a decent price!

  12. Hooray! It's funny how kijiji s the go-to in some places, and Craigslist in others. At home it's all Kijiji!
