Craig's List Weekly Series #2

Last week I announced that I would host a weekly series (notice I did NOT say linky party!) where I will share my top Craig's List finds of the week.  No participation is required, just comment as you like on what you think o my finds.  These aren't necessarily things that I would buy, just things I think are either a really good bargain or very interesting.

This stately desk has been on Philadelphia's CL for a while now.  And at $1600, it may be on there for a little while longer too.  People shopping on CL are usually looking for a bargain, and while this may be a bargain to some, Craig's List isn't the right market for this sort of antique.  I think it's gorgeous!

Also in Philadelphia, this set of four oak and lucite chairs goes for $550.  I think they are freakin' awesome!  But I love any piece of furniture made out of lucite - so Mid-Century Modern and chic!

This Belgian chandelier can be yours for $5000.  Of course I could take my entire family on a week-long cruise to the tropics for that price too.  It's just a question of preference. Ha!  I love it and the drop crystals are what make it so unique.  Simply Divine!

Tune in next week for more CL finds from my neck of the woods.

Have a great weekend and to those of you lucky enough to be yardsaling this weekend, Godspeed and Goodwill Hunting.  Unfortunately, I am hosting my own yardsale this weekend :(  Gotta unload and make room for more stuff.  And I need the cash.

As for tonite, I'm headed to A.C. for my BFF's 40th celebration!  Whoot Whoot!!  Yep.  Might be a little hung-over during that yardsale.  Hair of the Dog anyone?

Those pieces are gorgeous and you could go on an awesome cruise or a week at a Deluxe Disney Resort for the price of that chandelier!!!

Have fun tonight and just drink a Slim Fast in the morning. Works like a charm!!

I love your craiglist idea! Have fun in Atlantic City. If you lived closer I would come to your garage sale. LOL

Pretty desk, but not enough to pay that for it! :D Plus, I don't have the space.

I hear so much about Craig's List but I haven't really checked it out that closely. Looks like I better.

I would love to have that Belgian chandelier....a girl can dream, can't she.

Great Post.

Hi Kim,
What a great idea! I stalk Craig's List on a regualar basis too. FYI, Your button is on my site (again) Did you know there is another blog with almost your exact same name, which caused me a bit of confusion.
I noticed you signed up on my new forum. If you want to enter the book giveaway please make a comment on the giveaway post, it's near the bottom of the page. I like the items you find for your Etsy, you have a good eye.

Privet and Holly said...

Kim, I'll take the chandelier ~ ha ha, I'd rather have the cruise ~ but it is SERIOUSLY lovely! Good luck with the yard sale! It's good to purge and make room for new finds, whether from Craig's List or wherever else you can find a great deal.
Enjoy the weekend! xx P&H

Great stuff! I love the wood and lucite chairs!!

Deb @ Confessions of an Ugly Mom said...


It was great fun to meet you on Thursday and spend the day thrifting. Thanks to you and Wendy for setting it up -- I hope we do it again some day.

You really do find great things on Craig's List. (Why am I so bad at it?) I'm loving the sewing table you found last Saturday, too.

Looking forward to hearing about how your yard sale went! And if the hangover cure worked.

Thank you for coming by my "home" and I am glad we are friends!
Stop by whenever you like!
Those lucite chairs are AWESOME!
Too much $, though.
You are right, people do like a bargain, no matter how beautiful something is!
How did you do at your yard sale? Did you make some fun money, and get rid of stuff?

Brambleberry Cottage said...

I'm with you. I'm always amazed at the big-ticket items listed on Craig's list in our area.

As you said, people searching that shopping venue are looking for a deal. Oh, well!

Thanks for stopping by the cottage and commenting on the flea market. I have lots of other great shopping spots to post about, so come again.

By the way, I'm hosting a big giveaway, so be sure to stop back by.

I like looking at Craigs too! I look at it daily. Did you get my email that you won???> I hope so because it is the email that I sent to the CSN store representative.
